I'm looking for some input and advice as I am new to this type of vehicle. I'm purchasing a 99 international 4700 with a dt466, 210 hp with a fuller 6spd, and 34,000GVW (yes heavy specs for a 4700) it has 115k miles and is a penske box truck that i'm having a dump body installed.
I've heard many good things about the 466 and this is mainly how I made my choice. I will mainly be hauling construction debris with the occasional lod of stone, dirt, asphalt and towing a full size backhoe occasionaly, will the 210 hp be enough? and are there any good international web sites that can help me with service and repairs.
[/ QUOTE ] sounds like a good truck to rig up. little advise in case you dont know already.if the truck is not a double frame model,be sure the dump bed you install,or have installed,has its own sub frame. this will prevent any frame damage to the truck under heavy service conditions,or dumping loads during unlevel situations.
