Our Local is considering doing a Golf Cart conversion to a minature fire truck for parades and the like. Has anyone else attempted this project. If so is there any information on line or does anyone know people we can contact to get further info?

Make sure you have enough HP to run the pump!
The boys south of us made a tiller truck out of a used engine and stuff - heck paint it red, put a mini pump on it with atrailer extension for you water tank, old ladder. Have fun with it!
On a serious note I would use LED lights - less power draw!!

I think one of those deck guns with joystick control would be cool! Although the cost to do that for a go cart might be pushing it.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

I've seen a department that used a golf cart chasis and motor and built a trailer and made a tiller out of it. I've been looking for pictures for the past hour with no luck, I'm going to talk to some guys down at the FD see if they got any idea.
This isn't the one, but it's similar.

Check out Blufton Township South Carolina. They have one they purchased from a fellow firefighter who made it in his metal shop. It was featured on FH.com and might still be found on photo stories or something. They made a working tiller unit with 2 drivers. Looked pretty neat.

I'm going down a similar road except I am trying to find pictures of a golf cart tow truck with working boom. I'm not getting anywhere with it Flash: I think I'll get my friend who can draw to do a pic. Maybe then we can go from there?
However, and this is just a thought....what about enlisting the help of the local autobody shop or garage or heck, even a hot rod club in your area?
What a scattered post. Can you tell I just got up from nights?
