    Peterbilt 330 with a 14’ Heil landscape/mason dump. Caterpillar 230 HP with an Eaton Roadranger 6-spd. Model year 2003, bought new by me in July, 04. Driven carefully by one granddad owner-operator. Air brakes, air pto, air locking rear end, air horn, air conditioned and air driver’s seat (the best). Deluxe interior. AM/FM/Weatherband radio. Garaged every night and all winter. Only driven in the yard in winter months, never on road. I’ll include a custom knockdown plywood leaf box that extends the sides 4’ to carry 20 yards of chopped leaves. Optional 16 HP Giant Vac leaf machine fits on hitch and works great.
    Condition: Excellent. One stone blemish on front fender. Composite tilt hood, classic aluminum Pete cab. Waxed with Meguiar’s Classic. Dump floor still has some paint, but no dents. Bridgestone 295/75/22.5 tires. Heavy frame & brakes, etc. All original keys, documents,manuals, CD, etc.

    Capabilities: One man can flop the sides and tailgate down to provide a flatbed 4.5 feet off the ground. Easy loading by forklift, small machines or hand. Carries 3 pallets of pavers end-to-end plus sand and tools. Extend the sides 2’ higher with some 2x12 lumber, and it hauls 15+ yards of mulch. Can tow full-size backhoe, but I’ve never pulled anything over 10,000 lbs. It does not require a CDL in most states, including mine.

    Extras: Huge Weatherguard box 36x30x24 ($500), Holland 15-ton pintle hitch (never used), 2x2 receiver hitch plus custom extended receiver hitch, digital electric trailer brake controller, Cobra 29 Ltd. Dale Earnhardt CB, Peterbilt slush mats, DOT warning triangles, chock blocks, etc. The rear pintle plate is ½” thick and drilled top to bottom so that hitches can be relocated up and down.

    Price: $47,000. Current replacement cost is over $70K, and they come with the new nightmare emission exhaust system.

    I have lots more photos if I can get them to post. Please PM with specific questions. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks. Yes, it's rated at 26,000, although the front springs are 10,000 and the rears are 20,000 lbs. Peterbilt doesn't make many of them.

    Thanks, guys. It's a great truck. I wish we had more work for it. BlackCloud - I'll try to get some pix of the cab. It's typical Peterbilt, grey cloth seats, wood-grain dash, etc. MAC LLC - where are you from? Would I know you?
