We just received a kme 6-man cab 1000 gal. water 1500gpm pump we are going to use as our rescue pumper , of course painted black to match the rest of our fleet , pic of truck is on kme web site , as far as prefrence on manufacture , no prefrence we look at price ,service, who meets specs , how well built ,
a Darley Engine...we spec'd it out ourselves...Local company...in case of problems (always something)...Probably go back in the future....Jerome Fire did well for us...it is a 2000gpm pump, CAFS system on board......Yellow of course....(Not going there...LOL)
Our most recent purchase was a KME Predator Pumper / Tender. We took delivery of it in Nov last year. Our other Engine is a 2004 E-one Typhoon II. No we do not have a preferred Manufacturer. Primarily who ever can meet our specifications an at the best price. Both KME and E-One were very good experiences. Much of this is attributed to the salesman we worked with.
