Hinos are significantly underpowered in my opinion. They're also class 7 and I wouldn't get anything but a class 8 chassis. With 480k it's potentially all but used up. It might be the exception that's good for a few hundred k more miles but more likely it's nowhere near that. Good luck regardless.
Are you going to drive it.
A little harder to find drivers for a Hino than some other vehicles for the reasons stated.
How many miles do you plan in running and where ?
Hino is a lighter duty vehicle and is probably okay for lighter service uses.
I agree,at that mileage, I'd rather be selling it than buying it.
Heard you can't use e-logs I was also looking into it but with any straight truck with over 450k isn't a good idea. Most fleet owners start selling them at 450k to 500k so they can use that cash to buy a newer truck with less miles. Also most dealers only warranty up to 500k for those S/T I heard.
A straight with 500,000 miles is okay if it's a class 8.
Most class 8s will go 750,000- 1,000,000 miles w/o major issues. I sold my last class 8 with about 950,000 miles on it. If I was with a different carrier I wouldn't of even considered selling it.
I easily may have gotten another 3-400.000 miles w/o major expense.
For those skeptics: N-14 ,10 spd manual.
