    Question Msa Tic

    Does anyone out there have an MSA Evolution 5000 TIC?

    If so how do you like it? Is it a good trade in weight/ size vs. viewable screen etc.....?

    Also, any idea what they cost?

    Stay Safe!

    You may want to do a search under the firefighting forum there are several posts that have much positive to say about the 5000. If we are awarded a grant this year that is what we intend to purchase.

    We purchased the Evolution 5000 with grant proceeds from the 2002 program. Other than one slight problem, the unit has been great. We received one of the very first units and had the display die (caught during a daily operational check). MSA quickly repaired the unit with a 4 day turnaround including shipping the unit back to the factory. The size/weight is great, but due to the screen's smaller size, it is a little difficult for multiple FF's to view without passing the unit around. Not really that big of an issue. Just my $0.02 on the unit.

    We've had one for about 8-9 months now. So far so good. We have used it more for overhaul than attack stuff but that was due to the truck mount charger getting put in later than sooner....

    So far no problems at all. It has been used at at least a dozen structure fires... (ours and mutual aid)

    We chose it over the 4000 due to the size and weight.
