    Default Apparatus for Sale?

    Myself and 3 other executive board members have tried for a few months to find a replacement engine for our company. We don't have the biggest wallet but does anyone know of any apparatus sites that sell used trucks?

    To me, some of the nicer stuff I'm seeing on the used market is at:

    Texas Fire Trucks

    Company Two

    We'd be happy to sell you our 1986 Ford C/3D engine...
    I suspect you're looking for something newer, but I thought I'd throw that out there for anyone looking for a decent used engine, that drives and pumps like a champ.

    Sorry for the shameless spam... The department is selling the rig, we're not brokers, etc. If I've violated something by mentioning it, let me know.

    My guess is that it would be a LOT cheaper to fix the Mack than to get a "replacement" Engine and start all over again.Today's mentality:Get rid of it,don't repair it.By your original post you better find a couple good maintainence techs or your new Rosenbauer will suffer the same fate. T.C.

    If money isn't the problem with fixing it, then what is?

    No longer a problem to us. A apparatus broker bought our FDNY Mack for $25,000. They're going to refurbish it and whatnot. We're in the process of buying a 1995 Mack Tanker.

    What kind of budget do you have? Where are you located? I have a nice used custom pumper that is priced right. I'm a dealer salesman located in New England. Also know of a few other trucks located in other areas of the counrty. Could help more if you gave a bit more info.

    I wouldn't say we have a "budget" but we hence get $17,000 from our township every June or July, $13,000-$14,000 goes to insurance,bills,etc. Leaving us with about $3,000 to work with and as of now the broker that wanted to buy our Mack decided he doesn't want it and now we HAVE to sell this Mack to get the tanker but if you have a custom pumper, I may be intersted. But we are located in Woodland Township,Burlington County New Jersey 08019.

    If you want to have a look at what we're trying to get rid of

    I'd be interested but our county pushed their new rule of any truck purchased used or new from 2004 and on must be enclosed, if we could buy this I'd be very interested since we have no hydrants. But Thanks for the help, I appreciate it very much.
