In a nut shell, I have decided that I really don't need a DoKa, and need a SWB Ag spec truck. I've had this 1250 for 2 or 3 years now and the only time it gets used is to pull trailers around the farm, as a work truck in the mud when it is too deep for a pickup, and to plow snow on my driveway, neighbors driveways, and the local fire departments. I sold my last Ag truck thinking I would find another one no problem... well, guess what, that was not really the case, at least not for the price I want to pay. Anyway, this is what I have:

1985 U1250L DoKa, Imported by schmidt to the U.S. when new, LHD with English gauges, ~90K miles, clear Indiana title
125hp OM352A with exhaust brake with ~2800 hours, runs very well, new head gasket and other work when I bought the truck. Compression tests to almost new specs.
24 speed transmission, good syncronizers, shifts very well
Front and rear 540/1000 PTO with Double clutch, front has shaft
4 control valve hydraulics with 2 pairs of lines to front, 2 to rear
3 way tipper bed with cylinder
Schmidt front implement plate
Raised plow lights
Upright exhaust
Heated windscreen
Drum brake wheels for wider track width, has matching spare
4 wheel disc brakes
Rear hydraulic winch mounted to frame just behind the rear axle, needs new cable
Standard axles, top speed ~ 55mph with the 14.50x20 tires
Probably more options, but that is the main stuff

Anyway, the truck is good mechanically, and before I sell it it will get new brake pads and rotors all around, rebuild the brake master cylinder, new locker seals, and some other misc maintance Items it needs before the winter. The truck does have some rust on the cab, but I have the repair parts to fix it and when I get the chance, it will have the rust cut out and replaced with new metal. It is too late in the year for me to paint it, so it will still be ugly and multi-colored, but good and solid, with nothing covered up.

I would like to get around $32K USD for it if I sell it outright once all of the repairs are made, or I would entertain a trade for a MBU or SBU SWB, set up for ag work, or a U140, set up for ag work. Depending on the truck would depend on how I would trade (difference), but for a super nice truck with 3 point hitch rear pto, ect I would be willing to throw in some money with the deal. If someone wanted to buy it as-is, I would make them a better deal.

If anyone is interested, PM me.

Cheers,
Ben

VON,

Caution...I wouldn't do it-

Once you tool around in a SBU DOKA, all of that round cab stuff you have stockpiled will immediately be worth less to you....could be a problem.

Let's revue :

"I'll trade you one of the 'they're everywhere' Round-cabs, for one of the
Hard-to-land DOKA square cabs "

Von, I just don't think a good horse trader can out-trade another good horse trader on those grounds...

Glory and guts notwithstanding...

Plus I think Ben already has some rail equipment sitting around to anchor the tarps...

But just think when scrap metal goes back up he will be sitting on a gold mine!:rolleyes:
I asked Bill Anagnos if he ever sold any of the rail stuff from all the mogs he has parted out. Answer was, never! it is all just scrap steel. So that is what will be happening this week.

There arn't that many SBU DoKa's in NA from my understanding. This one has the extended roof as well for more headroom it looks like? Whats that look like from the inside? Lots of room for a radio console and such I'd imagine.

I know SDO had a nice short wheelbase AG (orange) truck for sale minus the cab.

Trev,

Yeah, it has tons of headroom and already has a factory radio console in it. I am toying with picking up SDO's 1200 for my business side of things, but this DoKa is one of my personal work trucks/toys for the farm, and I try not to cross polenate the money pools. here's a pic inside the roof.

Cheers,
Ben

I will post some pics when the 1200 gets here, probably in a couple of weeks. In the mean time I need to get the new hydraulic hoses put on the FL4 loader so I can mount it up when the truck gets here.

Cheers,
Ben
