    Default Fire Trucks for sale

    Approximately twelve Fire Apparatus will be sold at auction on Saturday July 10 in Marietta, Ga. Trucks range from older E-Ones to newer Freightliner Chassis with Stainless body and 750 gallon tank.
    For more info the auction site is:

    http://www.weaci.com and click on the Cobb County auction.

    As far as I know there is not a minimum bid on any truck.

    This is an informational post by me only and not from Cobb County or the auction company.

    OLDER E-Ones? RUN MY FRIENDS....Run FAR away!!!

    But seriously, I looked at the site and there are some
    really, really nice trucks there. I am curious why the
    departments are selling such new apparatus already?

    PS- Where are the Crowns?

    Management decided that commercial chassis Fire Trucks do not hold up when stations are running 15-20 calls a day. The Department has purchased 12 custom chassis Trucks with another eight on order.

    The newer engines would be great for a Department that didn't run a whole lot of calls.

    WHOA! Someone actually used common sense?

    Stop the presses...we need to put this date down on the calender!
