    Default Crane Equipped Rescue Truck

    Suppose you're building a crane equipped rescue truck...

    What options would you specify?

    What crane capacity would you specify?

    Just a guess, but don't think alot of people have experience spec'ing out crane equipped trucks. Maybe a call to Loveland-Symmes FD in Ohio would be in order.

    www.lsfd.org

    Their 1999 EVI heavy rescue has a crane rated at 32,000lbs.

    Also Lutherville, Baltimore County, Md. They just replaced a 20+ year old crane equipped Mack/? with a new crane equipped Pierce. Since they're on their second one they should have lots of do this/don't do this info for you.

    Stay safe out there, everyone goes home!

    Here's a picture of rescue truck KU85 It was V15 when the picture was taken. Rescue trucks with a crane at the back aren't uncommon in Europe. A few had it just behind the cab as well.
