    Frankly, give me something built by Oshkosh.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late

    I'd take that over a Jaguar. It's my understanding Milwaukee's is in reserve and frontline coverage is provided by Oshkosh Crash Trucks.

    Default How About Serious Comments

    I'd like to hear feedback on "current" builders of ARFF Vehicles not about Colet that as we all know is no longer in business for obvious reasons...

    Kind of cranky ain't cha?

    Okay here goes...After the P-23 fiasco you couldn't give me an E-One crash truck. When it worked it was awesome, too bad it was broke more than it worked. I never worked on a Rosenbauer or KME crash truck so I have no comment on them. I did run on a couple different Oshkosh crash rigs and they were tough, reliable, and worked when we needed them to. Even the old warhorses.

    My vote would be Oshkosh, But I said that already didn't I?

    I knew it was already out there. Just didn't think it was used much anymore.

    I guess I look at dual agent systems as the dual nozzle with one discharging foam and the other dry chem.
