Today’s used truck deal of the day is a Foden Alpha 8x4 tipper with a stack exhaust.
This future classic is available from GS International who stock a wide range of tipper trucks, but the Foden caught our eye for its low mileage of 562,763 miles. While half a million miles might not seem like low mileage you have to consider that this truck is 16 years old having first been registered in 2003.
It has a Thomspon steel tipping body, electric easy sheet system and an automatic tailgate, and is powered by a Caterpillar Cat C12 engine producing 400hp and paired to a 12-speed manual gearbox.
Priced at £11,995 and MoT’d until January 2020, this 53-plate truck might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but its silver and black paintwork and vertical exhaust have a certain charm we can’t resist.
If it’s not for you, GS International has plenty of other steel bodied tippers from DAF, Scania, Volvo and many others.
