    Beltsville VFD in PG county, MD has had one for about 5 years. All of the folks I talk to from there don't like it. Although I understand their officers defend it(I guess when you make the decision to spend money on a peice of junk, you don't want to admit you were wrong). I do know that it is slow. I've seen how long it takes to get the bucket in the air. Most trucks can be set up and have personell cutting the roof in the time it takes them to start lifting the bucket. I also understand that it is very sensitive and the stick locks up a lot if not exactly leveled.
    THE ABOVE REFLECTS MY OPINIONS AND IN NO WAY REFLECTS THOSE OF MY DEPARTMENT.
