Having come from a department that operates a Grumman Pumper Tanker that has a 2,500 gallon tank with a 1,250 gpm top mounted pump... I can honestly say you are crazy!!!
You want a front mounted pump with 3,000 gallons of water and a hosebed that holds 3,000 feet of 5 inch??? Were you looking at getting a tractor trailer... You'll probably need on with all of that... Do you realize how much room 3,000 feet of 5" hose takes up???
Sound to me like a third tri-mester abortion!

that's right LHS also usar29 it takes about a 160 cubic ft hose bed for that hose lay if you do your math first its not that big of a hose bed and they build 3000 gal tankers everyday with frontmount pumps why buy 3 trucks when you can do it with one
