Used Snowmaking Equipment   


   • 1978 International Harvester Dump Truck with snow plow - $6950
This is a single axle 1978 IH dump truck with a large snowplow attached. The truck and plow is in good mechanical condition and is rarely used. We have other equipment and have only had the truck on-hand as a backup for the last several years. Hence, the need to sell it. We are just not using it. The truck is started and moved monthly, and it is maintained regularly. All mechanical functions (dump, plow, gears, block heater, brakes, etc.) work well. The truck comes with snowchains and has current license and registration.  Feb 2015
