Ford LN 8000, Knuckle Boom Crane with 16' dumping Flat Bed - $18500 (Oakdale CT)

1234567891011121314151617
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. 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. 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 built used HD flatbed and replaced the front springs and hangers to tighten everything up. The Tyco Crane has 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. I always planned to add a rotator and grapple to it but have been using a set of log tongs in there absence since I purchased the truck. Many times this truck has been my best friend. I would sell the truck for 18,500 and the price is firm. A new crane with similar capabilities alone is well over 25K. I just put new Group 31 batteries in the truck.
