    Default New aerial coming along.....

    Got some cell pics of our Toyne aerial that is under construction, and should be finished by around Christmas.

    Storage seems to be on par with our 100' E-Ones. Front bumper will have hyd. quick connects for the Hurst tools.

    No complaints here about compartment space. Actually surprised how much there really is. Meaning.... almost as good as the E-Ones we have.

    FIREMECH1,

    Looks like this is a pure ladder, am I correct?

    We have had our discussion about Toyne but I'm glad you're happy with them. Who is building their ladders now? I thought I heard they went away from RK.

    We're going up to Sioux Falls Monday to do the final on our Rosenbauer engine for the Suburban side. Liked what we saw at pre build and pre paint so hopefully this is just a formality.

    Congrats,
    Walt

    Looks like a 75' LTI straight Truck. I've not seen a whole lot of straight trucks in the 75' variety, I suspect there are some distinct advantages in those areas where setbacks and taller structures aren't as prevelant and/or your fleet has many of the larger aerials well positioned as well.

    ....
    To my understanding the other way around, RK told Toyne to take a hike over FD user complaint/issues.

    Is that the Rosenbauer story?


    Looks good Firemech1.

    Chief; I do nto think it is an LTI, however it appears to be a Smeal, Take a good look at the lift beam. LTI may have made this change if so I withdraw my comment. How is the weather up in the north land?

    Clearly I defer to your knowledge of the LTI product. It was the lift area I was looking at thinking it looked more familiar than I guess it should have. My assumption would be it'd be either an RK or an LTI given Toyne's history and current status.

    Weather is nice, after the snow on the day before Halloween, it turned mild again. Haven't had to run the woodstove more than 3 nights so far. Luckily for us on the coast the snow was very limited, some of the inland areas got a bit for this early in the season.

    Chief,

    The round emblem just above the light bar looks like the RK logo......

    But I thought FireMech1 wasn't an RK fan, so we do need more info on this ladder.....

    I agree, looks like an RK to me. Likely the last RK Toyne will use. It just so happens Toyne beat Rosie/Central (among others, I'm sure) on the bid for this aerial and three engines, and the rumor was someone didn't like it and cut Toyne off. I'm sure Rosie spins it another way.

    Yeah, there is just something about arriving before the engine and actually being able to do something until they get there that makes me love the fact that our department runs quints instead of the traditional truck company concept.

    We don't do "Bi-Trucks", only straight shooters.

    As for RK, I have no issue with them, good company with a good product. Have a couple of them, and like 'em.

    This is the "truck" that created all the problems between "you-know-who's". I could spill the beans on what happened. But to make a long story short, RK dropped Toyne.

    To all I would like to retract my statement to the chief and others on this post, that it may be a Smeal and for the record I stand corrected. Thanks for the keen eye Rmcantee.
    Good luck with the new truck Firemech1.

    Sorry FireMech1 for mistaking that you weren't an RK fan. Who knows what I was thinking at the time.....

    Certain parts WOULD resemble a Smeal, for a CERTAIN reason. The lift cradle being ONE. A Smeal,this one IS NOT T.C.

    We tried that for years. The only things that turned red were a couple of valves behind the pump panel. How that happened is one of the mysteries of life. We finally had to go out and buy a red truck.
