    Default Need to find some pictures

    Guys, this should be fun. I need to find some pictures of the biggest firetruck you have ever seen. Tandem axles, ladders, huge water tanks, rescue equipment, everything. 50' long, 15' wide, everything, I need to see it. Even if its the most ridiculous truck, that has hardly any usefulness.


    Thanks everyone!!!

    The LIME yellow KME TL with 10 man cab with 20 inch raised roof, up in your county is pretty friggin ridiculous. I saw it being built, I guess they just checked every box on the menu.

    From www.cassvillefire.org
    1990 Peterbuilt Tractor with Sleeper Cabin. Trailer capacity is 8,500 gallons with an attached 650 gallon per minute pump. Sleeper cabin contains an Incident Command center with multiple radio frequency communication and planning maps. Nick-name "Rolling River II"

    I've seen this beast up close it's HUGE!

    Also this link New Market Rescue 1 is another huge piece. It might be bigger than the NYC rescues even.

    The old super pumper of the FDNY should be in this group.

    That is a cool looking piece, however I do not think that it makes much sence to have your Incident Command Center placed on board a vehicle that might need to be shuttling back and forth to the scene.

    With 8,500 gallons of H2O, I doubt this unit will need to be part of a shuttle!

    Cassville Fire I believe is the fire department that is first due to Six Flags Great Adventure down in NJ. I might be wrong though. For a department with such a huge seasonal crowd, they sure do have a tiny rescue truck.

    Rescue 40


    Yes, those are dual Q's on the Pete's, and yes those are bells in the middle, and yes, that is an HME chassis on the Rescue.

    I would like to drive those trucks. Who really needs DUAL Q's. With dual Q's you need atleast 8 grovers.

    They are nice to drive. And 4 Grovers does the job.

    We tried changing the direction of one of the Q's on each of the Pete's, because we feared that if both were spinning at full speed at the same time, it would roll the trucks...

    wow.. personally I'm not a fan of Peterbuilt truck chassis on fire trucks.. just my opinion.. I'd feel like I was going on a road trip every time we went on a call! I'll see what pictures I can find, but I know Chicago O' Hare Airport has a pretty big Rescue Truck. I'll see if I can't find some pictures of Charlotte's USAR truck.
