I knew you were correct when you first posted it, but due to my employment at the time I was bound from posting to back you up.

It's funny...when I was talking to the new NJ rep for Seagrave at the Harrisburg show this past weekend I was told that certain manufacturers were telling customers not to buy Seagrave because "the company is going out of business". The Seagrave dealer was forced to even put up a message on Facebook because of it.
The way they stuck local dealers with eating warranty service repair cost, maybe they should have gone out of business. We did not look at them because the one local dealer went out of business, the next dealer only lasted a year, and now we have no local service. We are looking elsewhere for our next engine this year. A local company I know has over 2 million in pumper rescues and had issues with warranty repairs.
Here is the closest Delaware service center:
Our engines have always had a single rear discharge. The only exception is the high pressure rigs. They have multiples to accommodate for the HP discharges.

What's going on with seagrave??? I keep hearing rumors they are laying off employees and not doing well and truth to this?
