Review: 1989 International ACCO 2250D Tanker Truck
International ACCO 2250D Tanker Truck: The Introduction
When managing large construction projects, earthmoving machines, like cranes and excavators, aren’t the only equipment that you should focus on and put your money into. Essentially, you also have to invest in heavy-duty vehicles that can help you transport water or any other liquid from one site to another in no time. For instance, a tanker truck.
Tanker trucks are great road partners, but purchasing one can somehow ruin your tight budget. My suggestion then is to just settle with a used or refurbished model from a trusted manufacturer. A particular brand I know that offers such pre-owned rigs with good maintenance histories is the International®. Below though is my take on one of their most favored water trucks: the ACCO 2250D.
International ACCO 2250D Tanker Truck: Key Features
Well, I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time that you’ve heard about International®. They are quite popular in the country since they have grown to be one of the top selling truck brands across the globe. Given that, you can then certify that all of the vehicles under their portfolio are dependable and of high quality. Their 1989 ACCO 2250D, which we have tested a couple of weeks ago, may be an old model, but I’m telling you, it could still perform well in tough working conditions. Particularly, it integrates an array of superb specifications. It also brings a comfortable cabin, making it a good fit for medium- to heavy-duty operations.
When it comes to power, the ACCO 2250D is something that you can rely on. Inside it is a strong turbo diesel International® engine that can punch out up to 210 horsepower. I know that this isn’t the latest in the class, but I’m sure that it can still withstand the demands of your construction project. When matched to the excellent automatic transmission, the vehicle becomes very easy to drive and maneuver.
Once you see the ACCO 2250D in action, you’ll realize that it is truly designed for both on-road and off-the-road. Apart from its 11R22.5 tyres, another noteworthy feature of this workhorse is its Gebel fibre glass water tank. This durable tank can carry up to 14,000 litres of water, which is more than enough to replenish your earthmoving machinery or clean up your site.
Additionally, the body also has a front, rear, right, and left adjustable spray bars. These, along with the Rexroth direct driver pump and the Cummins diesel rear engine, allow you to transfer water from the tank with ease.
Since the 1989 ACCO 2250D is an old model, you can’t really expect much from its cabin. Like your typical truck, it just brings the same reverse camera, power steering, and spring suspension. Though don’t get me wrong, I still adore some of its interior features. These include the in-cab pressure gauges, the air horn, and the power divider. Indeed, these provide extra comfort and convenience during long driving hours.

International ACCO 2250D Tanker Truck: The Verdict
The International® ACCO 2250D may be an old tanker truck, but as you can see, it can still tackle your most demanding water delivery applications. Its advantages, for me, are its large tank capacity and its powerful engine and automatic transmission. Its cabin is quite average if I am to compare it with other models on the market, but it can still provide high levels of comfort and safety. Summing it all up, the ACCO 2250D is a reliable set of wheels that can be your great partner on the road.
