    New dump truck

    Post by willowbilly3 on Wed Mar 20, 2013 5:51 pm

    Picked up a 59 Ford F600 dump truck today. 900x20 rubber was all new a couple years ago and it's been mostly parked since. Also the 292 only has maybe 500 miles since rebuilt. I got it home, put a battery and some fresh gas in and backed it off the trailer. Plan is to haul a few loads of sheep shit for the garden and flip it.

    Well, it came and went, paid $800 and flipped it 2 days later for 1600.

    Good deal. Did you get your sheep shit hauled first?

    No, But I did haul a couple loads of gravel with it. It's pretty slow and the brakes needed a little lovin so I decided the210 mile round trip for sheep shit was out.

    A full load with tender brakes does not sound like any fun to me.
