Two things I noticed are it has air brakes which IIRC means you need a CDL & it looks like a there's a bulkhead between the front & rear so you have to get out of the cab and walk around to the rear to get into the cargo area. Not that I need a fire truck...

that thing is sweet. and it says no batteries are included so I bet it doesn't go for much more than current price. If I had a large rural property, I'd absolutely get me something like that.

Cool cart.  That one is a 2015 but looks like they still sell them new... https://www.e-ride.com/  I saw an story about a fleet of them at a dam which  at the end of article states a price of $32k EACH! in 2015 when the article was written.  I'll bet it sells for more than $500.  Super cool looking.  Seems to be aluminum.   Picture #6 in the listing says $16,665.  I wonder if that is the reserve.

In reply to John Welsh :

I'm guessing that was the cost of it when new. Many of these Gov auctions have a tag like this. The original prices on some of this stuff is crazy.

A very similar one (w/o batteries as well) sold in December for $5900. Looking through the sold listings on this site shows that there are rarely any screaming deals. I really wonder who is dropping this much coin on these things? Is it all getting shipped offshore like much of the heavy equipment that is sold at auction?

Hey, David Wallens. 

THIS may interest you. Shipping could be an issue.

I thought I half recognized that ship as it sits now it’s tied up relatively close to where I live. It was previously known as The Queen of Tsawwassen and I may well of been a passenger in its old life.

Yes that certainly looks like an old British Columbia Ferry system Ferry. It would definitely actually be older than 1970. I live in Campbell River, spend quite a bit of time on the water and have never seen it. The BC ferry system has quite a few ferries at least that old still in service ( as does Washington state)

Not too often I get to say howdy neighbour (I’m in Qualicum Beach) that ship was being used as a logging camp in Toba Inlet. It’s probably tow required ran when parked.
