    CooterRob,

    1500 gallons? Seems like a lot for a single axle pumper.

    What all do you guys carry on it? Is it strictly a pumper or do you have rescue company tools on her?

    Let's say it was "reserved" or "pre payed" before being ordered.

    You will def see me in Keasby to check out the BURLINGTON Aerialscope soon! (Can I drive?!?!?)
    I don't think that KME builds a chassis with " triple frame rails " to handle the flex from the scope being lifted off the ground when in operation, without a torque box !!Kme fire apparatus would do a good business remounting AerialScopes from the Pa, area .We have drills on the ( first thursday ) of every month at 6:30 pm, at 420 Smith Street Keasbey,Woodbridge Twp Fire District #4 stop by to look at the truck, it is not registered or insured to be driven on the road !

    Might be worth the price of a phone call, too. KME did a couple of 85' Snorkels for Phila. that get beat up every day of the week. They may be getting ready to do another one. I don't know what the frame requirements for Snorkels are, but I'd guess they're pretty substantial. I don't know of a reason why they couldn't do triple rails, but that's their call.

    I also don't know if I'd want to have the first 'Scope that KME did, although if they put their minds to it, and if you stand over them with a baseball bat, they can turn out some decent work. But Seagrave and Pierce have done enough of them to have it pretty well figured out.
