    thats a great price, especially for the low 46,000 miles. I have the same truck for my roll off in the avatar. My 444E is basically the ford 7.3 turbo diesel. I have four times as many miles on line as yours and it runs strong. I use it for roll of 20 yard dumpsters. As a lawn truck? not sure, maybe too big, although it would basically be a rolling shop cause you could fit a lot of equipment in it. Maybe too big though.

    The T444E is International's name for the 7.3 Powerstroke. Exact same engine just a different name.

    T=Turbo
    444=444cid
    E=Electronics

    looks like a nice truck especially for that price...around here it would be kinda big for mowing though

    I would rather that than a 1ton pulling a 20ft enclosed trailer, it would be easier to drive a straight truck at that point.

    I don't know. Rust and worn seats at 41k miles on a truck like that. Maybe the odo went baloney and instead has 141,000 which would sound reasonable. Heck if it's in good shape, why not.

    it'll be closer to $7500 after taxes and title.

    i might try get $9500 out of it. clean it up maybe some paint.
