Our first new Engine in 22 years!
Just thought I'd share a few pictures of our new engine. It is an E-ONE Tradition Pumper on an International 4400 Chassis. It has a 1250 pump and a 1280 gallon tank with a 10" quick dump. It doesn't have much for bells and whistles, but we don't need them. This truck is something we've needed for quite some time, it replaces a 32 year old 500gpm pumper that is really showing its age, and it will take over for our 1991 750gpm pumper as our first due Engine . We picked it up on Monday and should have it in service in a couple weeks after we can get everyone trained, it is our first truck with a diesel engine, automatic transmission, air brakes, and a pump that drives direct from the transmission so we want to take the time to learn it well. I'll try to get some more pictures when we get it fully equipped and in service.
