    Default Saulsbury Rescue Engine

    I'd scoop this one up if we were in the market right now - lots of compartment space, a small cascade system, and a fairly low hosebed to boot!

    Just figured I'd share, given some of the conversations we've had on here in the past.

    (Yeah, don't worry - I'm not connected to the sale of this rig in any way, shape or form).

    Sure looks a lot like our last apparatus project. I wish we had the money and room for a spare!

    RFD, it is smaller than your engine. I would put $20 bucks on that being University City, MO FD. Like most departments in St. Louis County Missouri, keeping up the Joneses is very important. They have an 04 Bronto and looks like they just got a new Pierce Velocity pumper. Im surprised St. Louis County Fire Depts. and Districts have not enacted some sort of language that makes it illegal to buy nothing but pierce.

    It could be a little smaller, though not a lot given the same number of compartments in the body, but I was more commenting toward some of the features: rearmount pump, enclosed ladder storage, rescue body, "short" overall length, and very little space wasted (from what we can see).

    While the rest of the rig may be well thought out, I can't help but be immediately drawn to the rear 1 3/4 inch preconnects draped over the rear of the truck partially obscuring the rear warning lights. It may seem like nit picking but that kind of thing just drives me wild. Hang a strap or a rope down fom the bed and attach that to a strap on the hose load that bundles 3 or 4 layers of hose together. Pull the strap to bring the hose down to ground level. That way those lights that were important enough to put on the rig can still be seen unobstructed.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    Maybe it's not too late
