    If you know about it already why are you here asking about it?

    Or are you just the reincarnation of pumperguy or whatever his name was that wanted to agtate and argue with people about the new FDNY pumpers?
    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    looks like metal fatigue or failure of the ball joint forging to me.
    Pretty simple to see from the photo's in the link.

    Nah, I think Pierce can build a nice rig. But I don't drink the Kool Aid and would rather have a Seagrave given the choice.

    Nice try though.

    I am always suspicious of people posting anything about Pierce. Generally it is the Kool Aid drinkers that believe Pierce is the answer to everything in the fire service, or the haters that revel in every issue Pierce has with a rig and can't wait to jump on here to announce it. Since you knew about this incident AND already had pictues I put you in the hater category.
