For Sale: ’92 International 9200 Tanker Truck

The City of Smith Center KS (Smith Center Volunteer Fire Department) will be retiring their 1992 International 9200 Tanker Truck. As part of the final phase of equipment upgrades in firefighting equipment, this truck will no longer be needed and is offered to the highest sealed bid. Truck details are as follow:

Year: 1992, Make: International IH, Model: 9200, Engine: Cummins N14/855, Transmission: 7-Speed Manual, VIN: 2HSFHB7R3NC048280, Current Mileage: 753,920.

We purchased this truck used in the mid/late 90’s and had it professionally stretched and installed a 4000 gallon fiberglass tank to act as a tanker for the fire department. The Cummins N14/855 is rated at 350 HP, equipped with an engine brake and had the injectors replaced less than 5,000 miles ago. We recently have replaced the water pump, belts, A/C compressor (works) and batteries. The tires are in excellent condition, with the steering axle having Goodyear G357’s – 285/75R24.5, and the rear axles having Dynatrac PD-880’s – 285/75R24.5. The rear axles have a power divider to provide twin screw drive if needed.

The 4,000 gallon fiberglass tank has internal baffles and a large top fill (ladder self-contained) and quick dump on the rear of the tank. The tank is fed to a pto driven pump (Model: MIT-30H, Type: B). The pump provides quick discharging to fill other fire trucks (3” plumbing) and is also capable of pulling water back in to the tank. These controls are remotely operated from the truck cab. A supplemental booster reel (with power rewind) and nozzle is located on the LH side of the truck to provide firefighting assistance if needed.

All equipment is included, as seen in the photos, with the exception of the fire department radio. The steering gearbox has a minor oil leak on the input shaft, but is minimal. With 753,920 miles, this truck has minor bumps and bruises throughout, but is a very operational and reliable truck. The Smith Center Fire Department performs truck inspections monthly and mechanical flaws we discover are repaired. Please be aware that the mileage may vary, as this truck will still be in operation until the replacement truck arrives in early September (tentatively).

As we have attempted to be as descriptive as possible, we encourage potential bidders to view the truck in person. To arrange an appointment, please contact Chris @ 785-282-0343. Sealed bids will be accepted until 4:00 PM CST, September 28th, 2017. Bids may be dropped off at the Smith Center City Office OR mailed to: City of Smith Center – 119 W Court Street – Smith Center, KS 66967, marked “SEALED BID” on the envelope. Payment methods are: cash, check or money orders only. All sales are absolute and final.

**Disclaimer: The City of Smith Center has the right to refuse any or all bids.
