    Default Spartan/Toyne Rescue Engine In Service Pics

    As of today it is in service. Our ceremony consisted of driving it out of the rear bay, topping it off with fuel, and backing it in to the front bay.

    Pic 1 shows the lineage. 1988 FMC (donating to local dept.), 1998 KME (new reserve engine), 2009 Spartan/Toyne

    Looks outstanding! Dont you just love that under-walkway storage? Toyne is the only Mfr. to my knowledge that does this. It totally blew my mind the first time I saw it on a City of Pittsburgh engine company. One of the most cleverest uses of "dead space" I have ever seen!

    Never knew you could get a spartan fire service chassis with a gas engine these days.

    congrats on the new rig. I'm not too crazy about Spartan chassis but it looks to be thought out well.

    Nicely done.

    I'm personally not a fan of top-mount pumps, but to each is on.

    OK OK. We topped off the 50 gallon fuel tank with ultra low sulfur diesel for use in the Cummins ISL 9

    I'll be interested to learn how that V-Mux screen on the Officer's side works out. We didn't get it, but it looks like a good idea even though it's pretty pricey.

    @ Chief11... Having the V-Mux (VISTA) on the officers side is actually a good thing to have. The officer can turn on or off things that are needed as an accessory, such as turning on the pump heater when starting to roll. This is one less thing the driver has to worry about when making a run. As well, other advantages.

    GFPD2005... Very nice looking rig you ended up with. The use of dead space was well implemented in the build. There is alot I like about it, even the small stuff, like the dual spare bottle holders. WELL DONE!!!!

    That is awesome. I am very interested in the spine board box on the rear of the cab. Was that custom made or can that be bought somewhere?

    And we have under walkway storage on our 2003 Freightliner/E-One. Very useful storage space.

    I pretty much agree. As familiar as you get with them, and I am, you still have to look at it to do things, especially when it requires switching screens. So your attention is diverted momentarily. It would be nice to be able to tell the officer to do some of it. GFPD told me that Weldon had come out with a touch screen version that they were considering but didn't get. I'd like to see that.

    Very nice looking rig, great use of space. I really like the Spartan cab there seems to be alot more room in them than the "Sole Source" cabs.

    Looks like it came out awesome. Some great use of space and thought went into this rig!

    I don't recall the cost of the second V-Mux and since this was our first we didn't really consider it, but that's certainly something I'd consider next time ()for the exact reasons FireMech1 and CE11 are alluding to. While the screen is fairly easy to operate, it requires more "eyes on time" than toggle switches for the most oft used items. We're big proponents of driver's paying attention to the road with both hands on the wheel, so it would be a natural progression if somewhat affordable.

    Thank you all. A majority of the design ideas came directly from our last generation rescue engine and Firehouse forum members. A lot of people helped with pictures, suggestions, etc. and I think it paid off.

    I like the officer side Vmux so the driver can focus on driving. Another thing I am going to request is to have a driver screen "sleep" option. Even at the lowest brightness setting it still affected my night driving on our trip home. With a sleep function the officer can use the Vmux while the driver can have his Vmux in sleep mode. We were talking about the touch screen Vmux the other day over lunch which happened to be greasy fried chicken. We decided it was a good idea to go with the touch button Vmux instead of the screen.

    Also if the driver Vmux malfunctions you have a spare 3ft. away. We considered this a critical failure path that required redundancy.

    The backboard sleeves on the back of the cab was an idea from our 1998 KMEs. Toyne did a great carbon copy of the original and it is a great place to store them.

    There is still plenty of space available for growth. Any constructive suggestions for additional equipment would be appreciated. I am sure more crap will get thrown on in the coming weeks.

    RFD....Wonder if the front officer side compartment looks familiar? The additional Vista screen was around $800-1000 I believe.
