Very nice. I've been spying that one from afar on Craig's list I believe. Looks like a good score.

No. There will never be a plow on this truck while I am the owner. In fact, it may never plow again, because I intend to remove the plow frame off the front of the truck.

Very nice. Looks like it doesn't need as much love as Mater. Ditto on no plowing.

You are just 90 miles south of me. I worked in that neck of the woods for a while a few years ago. Love the truck. Good luck with it.

I'd love to find one like that someday when I have some room to store it!

That is a BIG BOY!! Nice. I like fenders you can walk on.

The only animal I can think of is an Elephant... BIG and don't get in its way...

Congratulations on the new beast.

How bad is it rust wise and the double or triple frame we talked about here but only speculated as to how much rust was in it since it was pushing snow.

Congrats on the purchase!

Hope you'll continue moving on Mater and have this new toy just to cheer yourself up so far.

It is double framed. Just weighed it this morning and it tipped the scales at 31,000lbs empty. For reference, 'Mater (my '64 B61SX) weighs 26,000lbs empty.

I haven't gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, but as best as I can tell there is very little rust outside of surface stuff. This appears to be very solid and frame rails look in very good condition. Even the underneath of the dump body is in excellent condition. I was prepared to walk away from the truck if there was any significant rust or corrosion issues, but we couldn't find any outside of the bottom interior of the dump body where apparently some dirt (or salt?) sat for a while.

I heard that truck has nice frame rails.

It is definitely surprising how good they are.

Well that is good news considering what it did in its former life.

So does everything work the way it should? It was priced right on CL but I think a lot of folks like myself figured it had a lot of corrosion issues, knowing it had a plow hooked on her.
