This unit has a 3208 Cat, 250 hp engine, with 643 Allison transmission. Has very good pickup speed, can cruise 70+ mph. It has good handling and can seat three in the cab and at least three behind the cab. Has good pump capacity and a new 1,000 gallon fiberglass tank.
Tires are in very good condition. Equipment maintenance appears to be performed and everything in good working order. Truck has 4x4 drive with high and low gear settings. Again, click on comments icon to post comments. Only drawback from my perspective might be the lack of power to get to higher speeds quickly, but our test drive ran up around 65+ mph.
