The Best truck on the market
The best ambulance on the market I'd have to say would be an Excellance Inc. out of Madison Alabama. They have the best boxes I've ever worked in. We use their Type IIIL ambulance are wide, long and on a Ford E-450 Superduty Chassis with a Powerstroke V8 Diesel. They are very spacious and the smoothest ride I've ever had, they are tall enough for me to stand fully (I'm 6'2") and wide. We are the only volunteer rescue that have 8 Excellance trucks in service. we have one Wheeled Roach....I mean Wheeled Coach, and everyone hates that truck, we just purchased another Excellance so that we can rid of the roach coach. The only downfall in the Price, our last truck topped out at $145,000 after being fully stocked buy us. The truck was $120,000. This is by far, the very best company. I don't work for Excellance or get any money for saying this, I speak strickly and exclusivley for expierance. I love Excellance trucks!!!:D :D The Truck below is our brand new truck. It has a Federal Electronic Q(e2Qb), air horns, all the Secondary lights are LED panels, the lightbar is an all stobe Whelen Advantedge, And the box lights are Power Arcs, an expiermental light by Federal. The pic I wanted was too big, to see the truck, go to Orange County Rescue Squad web page and look up under apparatus 232.
