FF715, the larger pumps benefit you in the rural areas when drafting. It's a lot quicker to fill a tanker 1250 gpm than it is 750 gpm, or draft at 1250 gpm and then supply a long lay.
They're not quite as much of a factor in areas with municipal water systems.

Hate to revive a dead thread, but I haven't had much luck with posting a new topic.
I recently saw (what I thought was) a picture of an engine with a rear mount pump, and rear facing panel. The weird part was that it appeared as though the panel was elevated with all of the connections underneath the operators platform.
I know Rosenbauer is doing something like this as a midship pump, but I have been unable to find the picture that I saw again.
Have any of you guys seen this or am i just going insane?
