    Maybe they cannot provide bonds as cheaply as before. A company with a good rating can provide a performance bond for around $3 or $4 per thousand. Companies with shaky financials can have rates that are more than double that amount.
    I have only 2 allegiances, to my country and to my God. The rest of you are fair game.

    Hey Buff, that's bad information. My department and the township in the next county over just bought a new pumps. The performance bonds were delivered Thursday and yesterday without any issues! Might want to check your sources.

    Gulp, gulp, gulp! Yum! Less filling, tastes great!

    Spoke with a Buddy of mine today, a Chaufer in Chesapeake VA.... they're Kool Aid toys have been in the shop for months....2 tillers about a year old....
    Can't get them working right, once they "fix" one thing another pops up.... Sounds alot like the 2 accross town from me, One tower complete with front porch overhang and a Quantum wich qualifies in the looks department as the "Bubba" (from forest gump) of fire apparatus.

    I can't get past the smell of Kool Aid, let alone the taste...blaht
    It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.

    Kind of a tongue-in-cheek joke to Tony, but since Metz is a division of Rosenbauer now, you can see the latest Metz units delivered on their site.

    Or, the one in question here:
    http://www.rosenbaueramerica.com/del...detail/?id=283

    I believe the first truly NFPA compliant single axle Metz built. 300 gallons of water, enough hose and ladders to meet the minimum requirement for a quint. Yeah, I know I said minimum, but this met a niche need for the purchaser, so I'm not here to argue the validity of the Metz concept. Besides, I no longer sell for that dealer anymore, so it really isn't my battle anymore.

    Buff if you put some corn starch on your Pierce's you won't get gaulded.

    I have a couple bids coming up and have heard that a certain Appleton Co is not supplying bonds also, so I will let you know.

    Woodbridge NJ is going to have the first ALF Aerialscope Refurb/Rechassis

    Out of all seriousness, I know of a Southern/Central NJ company that has gone to LTI directly for a pumper to be built on a Gladiator chassis. LTI is supposedly considering the offer and has not answered yay or nay as of yet.

    Everything I state on here is to support and aid my fellow firefighters. Everything I post is my opinion only, and in no way should be taken as an official opinion of any Company, Department, or Municipality I represent... oh and this includes Pierce Mfg, as so their legal department has advised me; since they apparently also invented the right to control "Free Speech".

    The old McKinley Fire Co. Aerialscope may look pretty good on a Eagle cab, if you could get LTI to do Scope remounts ?

    That would be cool. I would actually like to see KME do one on the Predator SS LA County cab/chassis.

    While we're talking BS here... Ogunquit Maine... how did they get a 100' E-One rearmount on a single axle chassis?

    You will def see me in Keasby to check out the BURLINGTON Aerialscope soon! (Can I drive?!?!?)

    It would only look good on an eagle cab if someone other than american Lajunk "oh sorry lafrance" starts to build them!!!
