Dump trucks are expensive. If you’ve looked for a new one you’ve probably found that they can be sixty to a hundred grand. Possibly even more depending on the size of truck you are looking for. The good news is that these vehicles are built to last and that’s what makes used dump trucks so attractive. It may have 200,000 miles on it but it could probably go for another 200,000 and it will only be a fraction of the cost.
A commercial truck trader used to be the only option for potential buyers but it’s become easy to find or list dump trucks for sale online. I’ve searched around a bit and have brought you three examples of what is out there and what kind of information come with them.
Mack is possibly the most popular manufacturer of dump trucks and there are many listed across the internet. I found this Mack dump truck for sale on Craigslist. It’s a 1998 with 421,000 miles on. That’s a lot of miles for any vehicle but this on seems to be in good condition and the owner wants $30,000 for it. The owner’s name is Bob which I think is perfect for any dump truck owner. If I owned one I would legally change my name to Bob.
This is a classic Ford dump truck for sale in Illinois. Can a dump truck be considered a classic? The listing didn’t mention the model year but the cab is a Ford 700 and I’m guessing it’s from the 70s. Only 40,000 miles on the odometer and the price is nice at $7000 but this one is going to need work. Plus, the bed isn’t very deep so the use for this truck is somewhat limited. It looks like it might be good for hauling light construction waste or dirt.
Here’s the cream of the crop. A massive 2008 Kenworth dump truck for sale on Craigslist in Washington. They want $140,000 for this monster. It has 5 axles and 96,000 miles on it. Sadly there isn’t any other information. I can tell you this though, if you have a big job to get done, this is the truck to do it. I would feel weird about driving a truck that cost more than my house did. At least the truck wouldn’t be on an adjustable rate loan.
Well, you can probably tell that I’m no expert but if you are actually looking for used dump trucks for sale, I hope this hasn’t been a complete waste of your time.
