    Little too complicated pimp testing for me
    77- Who's the professional pimp tester?

    How do you guys operate this thing when it is working? Is it your first due rig on structure fires?
    It could be during the daytime when it's staffed during the week by our part-timers. More than likely wouldn't be doing too much pumping though on a structure fire, primarily just a car or dumpster fire.

    If it ever stays out of the shop long enough to use at a fire.

    I didn't think a mini-pumper would be doing much water supplying.

    Much as we break your guys' chops about this thing, I sure feel sorry for you. It's gotta suck to get a new rig and have so many problems with it. Hope it gets worked out for you soon.

    Check this link out it was featured in the apparatus section of Firehouse in Sept 03.

    We actually had it here long enough to take the picture.

    Nice looking mini-pumper, sorry to hear your having all these problems. Our neighboring department just put in service a KME pumper, it had mechanical problems at there very first fire with it and its been in the shop for over two weeks now.

    RowdyBrassPiper- Welcome to the forums!

    its been in the shop for over two weeks now
    Ours could probably make the trip to KME on autopilot by now.

    Pimp is kinda fitting for the truck. We've been getting pimped over and over again with it.

    As 159 said, it could and probably will be 1st due for a structure fire during M-F 800-1700. Don't have an actual policy in place what to do yet. We have enough 5" on it to at least lay the line to the hydrant. Get a quick size-up, have 2 guys packed up with line pulled and waiting for the engine to arrive on scene. The engine can then connect the LDH to the hydrant and depending on size of the fire, either connect it directly to the Mini, or into the engine and the engine can supply the Mini.

    Hopefully the higher ups will get everything worked out for us, one way or another........

    Im personally not a big fan of mini-pumpers, to limited on what you can do with them, but I guess they have there uses. I just dont like the fact you only have 2 firefighters fighting any type of fire.

    Actually, Mini-Pumpers can be very versatile. They can fit into places that a full size engine cannot and still do fire, ems, rescue, etc.

    And it's not just 2 people. The paid on call members are still getting toned out for all calls, both EMS and fire.........

    My Engine caught fire monday.... . But it wasn't a KME related problem. The company that installed the radio put some wires running under a seat that got pinched and grounded out. It fried the radio, burned a big hole in the head liner and burned a hole in the floor. We ended up using a dry chem extinguisher to put it out.

    Man that's tough Jeff. Where you guys on a run? Pretty embarrasing when the engine catches fire.

    I know of a certain "big city" that had the generator on one of thier engines catch fire while they where at a Courtyard Hotel for a commercial fire alarm.

    Hope we never have to deal with something like this but with our "heavy" squad being a converted Ryder truck, we never know what it's electrical system is gonna do next.

    I looked at it's apparatus page, and it has a 500 gpm pump. As long as you have a hydrant hooked, certainly enough to run two 1-3/4 lines.

    Hey, it didn't say, does it have foam?
