Here I have one of my service trucks up for sale. Its a 1998 Ford LT9513, it has a Series 60 12.7l 475HP Detroit diesel, and a 10 speed Road Ranger.
Even though it has 756000 miles on it the truck is in great shape. It is a converted horse, the previous owner stretched the frame a couple feet and put the body and crane on.
The motor runs excellent, 3 stage jake brake works, straight pipe exhaust, and gets pretty good fuel mileage.
The transmission shifts perfectly, steering is tight, air suspension and air ride cab are good, tires are good (80 -90%),
Inside the cab is what a typical 756000 mile truck would look like. Some of the trim is missing or broken, The seats are in good shape and the air functions work. The dash is good, no cracks, all the lights and gauges work, switches are all there, etc. The radio works but needs a new antenna which I have but never installed. The heat works but the air conditioning does not. It needs a new compressor and clutch pulley. The power windows work and the tilt column works.
The crane is an Auto Crane 5005H, 5000 pound lift. It is a corded unit, it works well but needs the lift cylinder rebuilt, its leaking out of the front seal and creeps down a bit when it lifts.
The fluid tank is in one of the rear compartments, it has a fluid weep somewhere in there but not sure where, never really looked for it.
The body is in fair shape, all the doors work, it has some rust in it but no rot anywhere. The vise is included, it has some retrofitted tool boxes in it, shelving, and some draws.
When I bought this truck a few years ago it came from Pheonix, AZ. I flew out with a buddy of mine to drive it home, I bought it sight unseen off ebay. When we arrived there it had been sitting at the auction house for a couple months and the batteries were stone dead. We finally got it jump started, we hopped in it and drove it 2400 miles over 3 days straight home with no issues!. We blew across the country doing 80 to 85 MPH no problem. It has 4.11 ratio rear in it so it does get up and go, it climbed the hills with no effort at all. It"s a great riding truck with all the air systems in it.
This is a CDL required vehicle, its GVW on the registration is 35000 LBS, please note this.
A few things I forgot that were brought to my attention:
It does have air brakes in the truck
The truck is not equipped with an air compressor for tooling. There is a hose reel in the back compartment that is hooked to the truck air brake system. Its good for blowing up a tire or
small stuff but not really adequate or tools. I"ve used it for tools before, its just slow.
I might possibly consider separating the truck, body, or crane if needed. We would definitely have to talk first to come up with some sort of arrangement. It"s not my first choice but it could happen.
Any questions please call me at 631-236-3457.
