    Default ALF Mid-Engine Pumpers

    ALF is going to build 22(with options the number could be 56) mid-engine pumpers for Phoenix, Arizona.
    Other than E-One/Saulsbury does anyone else build mids?
    Anyone got any idea as to how many departments use mid-engines?
    Just wondering.

    The story goes that E-One is actually discontinuing the original Hush model with the rear engine. They will continue to build a mid mount engine however.

    Elizabeth, N.J. has a mid engine for their large Rescue/Special Hazards rig. Anaheim, Ca. has been using them for a while, maybe even a 2nd generation of them for their Engine Co.'s. Phoenix of course with the current Saulsbury Engine Co.'s.

    What will become of those paramedic transport engine co.s? Those other engines can't have the space needed for that can they?

    I'll bite. A mid engine apparatus is one that has the engine removed from the traditional position within the cab and placed behind the cab in the area normally reserved for the pump. Not a Hush, which is a rear engine design, but kinda. LOL. As said before, the best example off the top of my head is the Saulsbury Stealth pumper.

    Default Maybe Not

    Are new trucks more important than more fire stations?
