    Default FDNY Rescue Companies

    Now that the FDNY E-One/Saulsbury Heavy Rescue apparatus have been in service for a while, does anyone know how they are holding up?

    How do the guys like the rigs and are they performing well?

    Regards,

    I believe we got to the bottom of that question in this thread:

    http://cms.firehouse.com/forums2/sho...threadid=61696

    I think it's the Mack/General Safety that was manufactured and donated by those companies. There's a link to pics in the thread. This is what I've narrowed it down to, at least. Someone in the know might have better details.

    Thumbs down E-One?? I DONT THINK SO!!!!!!

    I just talked to a Lieutenant and a BC from SOC just the other day on this very subject- The word from the troops on the street is: JUNK THE CHASSIS! REMOUNT THE BOXES ON A REAL CHASSIS, LIKE THE MACKS! The E-Ones are Garbage!

    There you have it! From the members who use & drive them every day!

    And yes, Rescue 6 is using the 2001 Mack MR/General Heavy Rescue, FDNY Shop serial number GR02001.

    Wink Sounds familiar, unfortunately

    Were there any specifics? Or just "garbage"?

    For example, coolant leaks, hydraulic fluid leaks, engine oil leaks, engine doghouse insulation being burned/torn away, belts being thrown numerous times, electrical issues like blinkers not working after being fixed several dozen times, improper leaf springs resulting in damage to wheelwells from contact with a tire...

    ... and yes, that's our experience with the E-One Cyclone II chassis. It has a very nice Saulsbury body though.

    Interesting, the Rescue Lt I talked to loves his. Go figure.

    Same here. The guys on the companies I spoke with say it does the job. No banner waiving or over the top fan fare about them, but they seem to be acceptable. But lets face it, unless its an old school Mack chassis, its not the same. LOL.

    Stay low and move it in.

    (I do like our trucks also... just wish that the problems would be fixed once and for all... I think we're making some progress with a new dealer, like I said in another thread)
