Pierce engines on my career FD
Well, my career FD is on its third Pierce engine in 3 years. We have a Lance engine, a Lance Rescue engine, and the newest is a Quantum PUC engine.
I have quite a few days driving the Lance Rescue engine and I have to admit it is a sweet rig. It has Tak4 and a 450 horse power engine. It rides nice and has plenty of power. I have driven the Lance Engine a few times and have no complaints on that one, and I have only driven the Quantum once before it was in service.
These are all nice rigs, they all had minor issues upon delivery but nothing that wasn't fixed pretty quickly by Pierce. NO, I am not ready to drink the Kool Aid, but I am nether totally anti-Pierce either.
