Went to an auction last weekend. A ton of hit and miss engines, also had a fully restored John Deere D, and an original Baker. Lots of old machining equipment and a grain truck. Truck was a consignment by a neighbor. 1999 Mack Midliner 16' bed 180,000 miles 33K diesel and air brakes. first bid was 2,000. I went 3000 and it stopped there. I was shocked. Never in a million years would i have thought it would go for that. When the guy signed over the title he was pissed. cant say i blame him though.

That looks like a hell of a buy! I went to an auction for the same reason last weekend. But I quit at $800 and it went $850.. construction company bought it.. they’ll probably have it tore all to hell in 6 months.. 

 

How many bushel will that truck haul 350-400?

Yeah I can't complain a bit. Auctions are usually "if I would have just bid one more time I would have got it" for me. Glad to hear I'm not the only one lol. 

The f-600 is a 14' bed and  holds 360, Freightliner is a 16' and holds 435. This bed is a taller 16', so I'm thinking it should be close to 500 at max capacity, but at legal weight about 400.
