We used old DOF 2 1/2 tons with 500 gal and 350gpm pump, built by us. Worked so well for so long the Dept. had to switch it up. Now we have 5 ton monsters built by the prison system, costing 100,000 (thats not a typo), and our newest blew a motor due to revered pistons. Go figure.

just purchased a General Fire equipment "General" . Actually bought their demo . 490 gpm pump and 500 gal of water--sweet, needed a little fine tuning to meet our needs.

retired our 1954 6x6 Reo, now we can still go nearly anywhere but at more than 30 mph

well I guess I will be the first. We have a 1965 6x6 or deuce and half to anyone military out there. It was a military fire unit until it came to us by state auction and now serves us well as a go anywhere brush truck. we also have a surplus military 5/4 ton chevy that has a 250 gallon tank in it. And we rigged foam up for quick stops on small fire and putting out hot spots. As soon as I get some pictures I will post them, right now they are on my computer at home. But I will post asap.
