Can anyone tell me the difference between a 4700 and 4900 IH truck. Both of the ones I am looking at have 466's, allison's, and a 33,000lb GVW.
Thanks

I used to work as an engineer in International"s truck group, and I don"t know exactly what the differences are. As someone already noted, I"m sure the 4900 is generally considered more heavy duty. Probably the "standard" configuration of the 4900 has heavier frame rails and various other features. However, with medium and heavy duty trucks there is a lot of room for customization of each model, with the result that you could probably build two different models to be virtually identical (except for the model number badge, of course). In short, the model number itself won"t tell you a great deal about those trucks. Need to really look at how they"re optioned (GVWR (as you noted), engine, transmission, frame rails, suspension, etc.), everything"s custom with these trucks.

THE 4700 SERIES IS LIGHTER DUTY WITH HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES. THE 4900 SERIES HAS AIR BRAKES=MUCH BETTER; BUT YOU NEED A CDL IF IT GVWS ABOVE 26000 LBS., WHICH IT PROBABLY DOES.THE 4700 IS MORE LIKELY TO BE AUTOMATIC, AND THE 4900 IS MORE LIKELY TO BE MANUAL.

P.S. I'VE NEVER SEEN A 4700 THAT WAS A CDL ABOVE 26000 LBS.;THEY ARE ALWAYS BELOW 26000.

The 4700 is probably a Lo-Pro... but I'm not positive about that. Does it have 22.5's instead of 24.5's? Lower frame? That's what I'd expect... but really, if it looks like it'll do the job it doesn't much matter if the price is right?

No, neither is a low-pro. I've done a search on the internet and can't find anything. Guess I just have to call the dealer.

I don't see what difference it makes really... if it does the job, don't worry about it.
