    Gahh! The Pioneer-- the fly in the ointment, the Khloe to the Kim, the Carson Palmer to the Bengals.
    We have a 1981 ALF Pioneer Pumper, that truck will run and pump circles around any other engine in our area. She may not be pretty, but shes a beast!

    In front of the Quonset is an International, and I'm pretty sure the pickup is a Dodge. Those five white specks on its hood are the name.

    We technically have a 1975 Maxim that's still in service. It's duty is slated as a backup pumper for storms.

    As far as actual in-service pieces.....we still run a 1982 Ford/Ranger pumper. She's our brush engine now. If the 250 gal in our little truck can't do it, E-2 will roll and will dump the tank and/or tag a hydrant and feed the brush truck via a 2 1/2" line. And we also carry many reducers and miles of forestry line if need be.

    Our next oldest is our Ladder. 1985 E-One 110' RMA. It was originally ordered by Boston Fire and is identical to their 1980's trucks.

    Another thread raised from the dead...

    The chassis was an International, but I don't know who built the fire body.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
