    Thoes trucks are not on commercial chassis. I think thoes would be a little pricey for most deparments.

    I can provide information on our units if you would like. They are customs cabs thats why I have not offered up information prior to this. Actually the unit show is a Saulsbury - our older unit 1999. The Crimson is a 2006 looks about the same - slightly smaller MFD V/S LFD cab a 250 gallons less water.

    Default As best as I can do

    These are the only two that I can think of period...though I'm sure they're out there. The first one is 650/1250 I think. The second is perhpas the last Maxim ever made (I know not exactly recent), but again these are all I know of. It's a 500/2300.

    I have a drawing of a commercial tender with rear pump, but the file is too big to load. If you want a copy, send me an e-mail.

    Thanks but looking for modern (mfg still in business) commerical twin screw rear mount tanker pumpers (1250gpm+) examples. Midwest would be even better.

    I'm more interested in that front mount supply pumper you guys have on the International 4x4 chassis. Very smart design there.

    I'm sure that Toyne would look at doing one on a tandem. If they think it's not a good idea, they surely would tell you why. I do know that Waterous at one time and I believe still does insist on air ride rear suspension for any truck for which they provide a rear mount pump. I don't know about Hale, Darley or Rosenbauer.

    Have you tried www.customfire.com? They are located in Osceola, Wi. My dept has taken delivery of 3 front line apparatus from them since 2003. They build VERY solid apparatus and listen to their customers. Give Wade a call.

    Just out of curiosity, Why rear mount pump? I counld be wrong but I don't see how they could put a rear dump chute on a tanker with a rear mount pump, and I would think that for normal tanker "operations", you would want that along with one on each side. Not bashing ya...just curious.

    We've got two Waterous S100 equipped rear mounts and both are spring suspension. I know Plano and Fort Worth are also Waterous, just not sure if they're air ride or spring.

    I could be wrong but I don't see how they could put a rear dump chute on a tanker with a rear mount pump, and I would think that for normal tanker "operations", you would want that along with one on each side. Not bashing ya...just curious.
    I'm sure with some creative plumbing you could squeeze a rear dump in there. It would depend on how many and where you wanted your discharges.

    They may have done that at one time but it was never mentioned to us when we bought ours. We take delivery Tue May 27th of a Rear-mount Rescue Pumper built by Rosenbauer/ General Safety. We went with a Waterous S100 pump and standard spring suspension. I was able to look over 2 of the Plano,TX Rear-mounts at General but I don't recall if they were air ride.

    Could be that it was with a different pump. Once you get behind the drive axle, road motion (bouncing, etc.) is amplified radically. I know that the S100 is a different animal, may have been designed with that in mind.

    Gregg, any insight for us? Like to set us straight?

    Default We have built several rear mounts on both Comm'l and Custom Chassis

    I don't pay much attention to this website, but I have been encouraged by several FF friends and other OEMs to sign on and chime in on this thread.

    We have built several rear mount pumpers with both volute (Waterous CX, S100, Hale etc) and "full bodied" pumps (Waterous CS, CSU, CM, CMU, Hale QMAX, etc) pumps. These trucks have ranged from 500 gallon to 3000 gallon tanks. We can also install rear dump chutes on all 3 sides. We have built rear mount pumpers and pumper-tankers on Pete, Int'l, KW, Freightliner, and Spartan chassis. Feel free to reach me. Wayde Kirvida, Custom Fire, 612-325-1366.

    I attached a photo of a rear mount tandem on commercial chassis. This truck has 1800 tank, Rescue Depth Compartments, Stainless body, cascade system, and 2000 gpm Waterous CMU with all electric valves.

    FWIW, Don't get distracted by the chassis on the truck. The body and pump system are the same either way. After that has been determined, choose the chassis that is right for you.
