    Pretty sure the 4100 and 4200 have the VT-365 which is the 6.0L. Same as the powerstroke.

    Whats the GVW of the 4100? Nice truck, should be alot more useful then a comparable f550.

    Yeah they're really nice all around.
    Thanks, took our time to make sure it was done as good as possible. I'm going to go over it with a lawn roller later and to enure the seems are snug and also over seed it so all the seems fill in and bond together. By next summer this property should look 10x better then it did this past summer.
    Thanks, basics are, prep the top soil, stagger the seems where each roll meets. makes sure there arn't any gaps, stamp or roll to help it bond. don't let the sod lay all day baking in the sun. needs to be laid and watered as soon as its delivered for best results.

    Yes this is the largest sod job i've done so far.
    All i know is its a diesel. Will have to find out about the specifics and specs.

    Yes on the 4100 it says VT365 on the door badge.

    The other International is a 4300.

    I don't know the GVW. It was just delivered today when i saw it. I stopped by to drop off some materials and it was there.

    He also has a 2005 Ford F-350 6.0L Diesel p/u.

    Picture of the F-350 and Haulmark Trailer...
    Only pics i have from winter...

    Hey how do you like your walker? I love to run them and they do a great job but everyone I talk to tells me to stay away due to high maintenance. By the way nice setup ya got, it looks like you like to keep your stuff as clean as I do.

    Overall its a good machine. I bought it used and its older so it doesn't quite perform as good as a brand new machine but the engine runs strong and all the feature work. its just show its age all around.

    I wouldnt say that the maintenance is high, its the cost of parts that can often come with hefty price tags. These machines hold up well and are built well, they just got alot packed into them that makes them more involved to work on depending on the problem. There's so many grease fittings on these machines its crazy, they're everywhere. Can't beat the quality and performance of these mowers in many mowing conditions.
