1998 International 4700 Bucket Truck - TPL 40, 45 foot working height. 176,020 miles. I have owned and maintained this truck since I purchased it in 2009. It had previously been a Chicago, Illinois electrical utility fleet vehicle.
The good: the truck runs great, is dependable and ready to work. It starts up quickly in all weather and the Allanson automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The TPL-40 lift works just fine and does all that it was designed to do. The boom cylinders and hoses are tight with no leaks of hydro fluid except for a gradual buildup of sludge around the bucket leveling cylinder.
The bad: the utility body has significant rust especially inside the tool bins, at the tool bin hinges, and around the wheel wells. The engine slowly drips oil. A slow leak of transmission fluid occurs when the PTO is engaged. At least one of the tires needs replacement and the low beam headlights don"t work. Sometimes the dash lights go out, requiring that the instrument cluster be removed and its electrical harness reseated, (this is simple to do). The driver"s side air glide seat won"t rise and may need a new pneumatic lift cylinder.
