I'm sorry if I offended you and the Hamlin Fire Department in anyway. I didn't mean to. I wasnt trying to critique your photos or the photos of the fire department. I called my dad (since I don't live with him) and asked him who his friend was. He said it was a guy that was in a neigboring department. I think he said Morton. 'm sorry for misleading you. I have learned from my mistakes and will not post anything that I am not asked to post.
Hey, thanks for the followup! I was really glad to see the imput from everyone that was left on the topic, it was a fun post to watch!
Anyway, we ended up staying with Hurst. In large part because of the flexability it gave us to keep our current equipment, hoses, pumps, reels, ect. and the fact that we had spent a few bucks just 2 years ago on a new cutter.
Every mfg had pros and cons, but overall we are happy!
As Always, Stay Safe!
