    Default Have you SEEN THIS?!

    Has anyone seen this Seagrave/SVi Tiller Rescue truck? It's HUGE. Supposedly, it was delivered to the City of Orange in California. Here's a link to it's pictures: http://www.svitrucks.com/oraca.htm
    Just my views of things.

    What a shame. All that space and they still choose to mount pike poles on the outside of the monster. I wonder

    Billy,

    Its probably because, by the time you walked to the back to get one , the incident would be over. Is this an airport apparatus?

    I believe that this is their USAR Rescue truck.

    Holy cow Batman!

    Why the hell is it so big?!

    In reply to ALSfirefighter- you don't walk around this rig, you ride one of the 10 motorbikes that you could fit into one of the lockers!!!

    Lets just hope that all of their USAR incidents are next to very wide highways and that they don't have to back up.

    I bet if you open a panel on one of the compartments there's a diagrahm that says "You are here."

    Ever seen the list of equipment a USAR team has to carry? The list is 80+pages long...

    TX-TF1 says "Each task force brings its own equipment cache to the scene. At an estimated cost of $1.5 million, this cache includes over 12,000 items and weighs in excess of 45,000 pounds."

    See the list (and drool) at TFCache2000

    Go BIG or go home. I guess they didn't want to go home

    Walk? Ride a bike? Hell, you would have to phone ahead to see what the weather was like first.

    I would hate to see the bill for all of the long distance phone charges between the driver and the tiller!

    That isn't any bigger than the FDNY rescues, it may be longer but it doesn't look like it carries that much. Actually it looks like a referb tiller.
