This is a Southeastern Ct Listing. The truck is 1989 LN 8000 with a 7.8L inline 6cy. Diesel and a 8LL trans. It was ordered new from Ford to carry the crane and a dumping flat bed . The truck has a double frame and a heavy front axle to handle the crane. I purchased it over 15 years ago from a local business here in Connecticut. I has over 300K on the odometer but the motor and trans were rebuilt before I purchased it. I have always ran a farm plate on it and it has done everything I have ever asked it to do. This is a very handy truck to have around and has done a lot of work for me. I put new rims with virgin rubber on it several years ago because I did not want to have to worry about DOT or running loaded. The truck sees only occasional use around Southeastern CT and on my property so the tires are still like new. It has never been used on the road in the winter months since I have owned it, because of this, the cab and the frame are in very good shape for the age of the truck. I swapped out the dump body a few years back with a very well made used heavy duty flatbed and replaced the front springs and hangers to tighten everything up. The Tyco Crane has full continuous rotation and has two hydraulic extensions. It could be fitted with additional manual extensions if needed. Most Knuckle Boom cranes only have 290 degrees of rotation. The continuous rotation makes this crane extremely versatile. It will lift 2500lbs at full extension and over 5 tons at the side of the truck. The crane also has 2 additional circuits running through the rotator with two spare valves on the valve body that would just need down stream plumbing. I always planned to add a rotator and grapple to it but have been using a set of log tongs in their absence since I purchased the truck. There have been many times when this truck has been my best friend and it has made me a lot of money over the years. I have moved equipment as large as a 12 ton dozer, picked up and moved small buildings, set beams and roof trusses, scrapped numerous tons of steel, picked up hundreds of saw longs and pole wood, picked otherwise dead and immobile vehicles from hard to access spaces, and moved Bridgeport’s, lathes and other machinery. I’ve even moved a few hot tubes. A new crane with similar capabilities alone is well over 25K.I just installed new Group 31 batteries. The truck is all there and goes down the road very well. Know issues, the windshield wiper motor and washer need repair replacement. Some lights need attention and the shut off solenoid can be sticky when the truck sits. This truck always has done what I have asked it to do. The truck is available for inspection in Oakdale CT. Questions please ask. I don’t need to sell. It is about the cheapest vehicle I own to keep on the road, I’m just looking to downsize the equipment a little. thanks Gene Eight Six Zero Four Six Zero one four six three,
