There are many aspects to consider when evaluating a used septic truck besides just size, although, of course, size matters!
You’ll want to consider engine size since this will directly influence both costs (fuel) as well as speed and efficiency. Then there’s the transmission to consider as well. The overall vehicle weight should not be overlooked nor should the axle weight-bearing capacity and load distribution all of which influence the maneuverability and stability of the truck.
Lastly, and maybe most obviously, you need to consider the wear and tear on the truck. What year was it manufactured? How many miles does it have? How well was it maintained? All of these will directly impact the purchase cost as well as the total cost of ownership over time.
