Cheap Semi Trucks and Lowboy Trailers

I recently added a 1971 Ford Semi Day Cab with a Lowboy Trailer for only $3500
to my used heavy equipment website. It has a 20 ton winch that pulls the Hyster Lowboy trailer up and onto the roller and comes with boom for pulling equipment, the lowboy trailer even has its own ramps. The truck doesn't run but out of the whole asking price we are only wanting $500 for the truck. You won't find a lower price on a lowboy trailer of that size anywhere.
There is also a 1986 Freightliner Semi Day Cab w with a 350 Cummins Diesel engine for only - $2995 OBO - Yes it does run and would make a great work truck that you could use with the above mentioned lowboy.
No matter what you are looking for I am sure you can find it on my used heavy equipment site.

Preventing Rust on Heavy Equipment

Heavy Equipment is a valuable investments so you want to keep your own used heavy equipment in excellent shape and condition as much as possible. No matter how old or new it is or whether it’s a known model or not, you should give it special treatment as it provides as efficient, safe and comfortable means of earning a living as well as being used for personal use.

It is inevitable for any type of used heavy equipment to experience common mechanical problems; this is especially true if the model is already old. Among the most destructive and the most annoying problems is rust. This affects almost all machinery parts, especially those exposed to moisture. One used semis the body panels, including the doors, the fenders, the hood and the bed are of course among the most vulnerable. When damaged by rust, these body parts become weak and not only that, they become ugly too. Replacement may be your only solution.

The hood is one of the most important body parts as this is used to protect the most vital parts of your semi truck such as the engine. Just like the doors and the fenders, this must be rigid and tough to be able to give the best protection to parts underneath.

Since the hood has a metal covering that is exposed to harsh elements in the environment, the hood is also very susceptible to rust. Because of this, proper care is needed. It must be kept clean all the time and make sure the drain holes around the hood are clear so water can't pass through and cause rust.
