88’ S1900 information


Recommended Posts

This truck has 3400 miles on it and a 5+2 the name Plate is nearly illegible. Can someone advise me on the possible engine and weight rating?

A safe guess would be 12000 front 23 rear.   If your thinking about buying it dont think twice they are great trucks.  An international dealer can provide a line set  ticket if you can get the last eight of the vin.

I don’t know, part of me says it is a much nicer truck than the top kick with 3208 and an Allison, the other part says the frame is pristine and it is a nicer fire truck than our 77 ford. Still don’t know what they are asking for it.

When we are looking for a new truck for me a work I found an 06 F550 small fire truck with like 20k miles.  They wanted in the low 50k for it.  It didn’t seem like  a good idea then.

The top kick was a real project. More than it was worth probably. And it is a pig. I suspect this one would be a little easier, but not enough better to make it worth while.

Whats the water tank capacity? That pretty much controlled the axle  capacity . Looks like 5 in suctions 1000 gpm max, pump capacity pretty much controlls HP rating most Dt-466s aound here have 210 hp hooked to 1000 gpm pump. Relatively flat ground in my neck of the woods.

Nice 

If its a DT466 grab it's certainly better than the Allison truck

You will have 10 speeds at your command  

Does it have an inline or rotary pump?

You should be able to turn it up some  

With the turbo that will sound way sweeter than that CAT

It always amazes me the low miles on some of these fire company and municipal vehicles.  100 miles a year on this one.  I did around that today just running around for stuff.

Lots of small fire departments here with one in every town.  There are trucks for sale from time to time and if I recall $5000 use to by a pretty nice one.

It looks really nice, engine is very clean, can still see the paint on the pulleys

I have no idea on weight rating numbers but I would think it would be on the stout side of it's class of truck, given the six spoke wheels

The DT466 is a great engine for that size and age of truck, the IH lineage is cool too, compared to other engines available at the time(80's/90's) 3208 Cat ,8.2 Detroit, 6.9/7.3 IH, 5.9 Cummins, 3116 Cat etc. the DT466 is the best of them, I think highly of the DT466E as well but it's not IH designed

A customer of mine has a 95 4700 or 4900, single axle dump, DT466 and 6+ trans, only 67000km, he bought it new, it's pretty nice, and a heck of a truck
