    It looks like they are trying to stay with their old style. It is pretty boxie. (is that a word?)

    Not too bad though. Does it have CAFS? Looks like a pretty big pump pannel.

    Is that one of the dual contract pumpers with Seagrave and Pierce? I think I have pictures of their Pierce's on the line somewhere.

    The Seagrave is part of the original order placed by the LAFD to Seagrave. It is though part of the second phase. Pierce has completed both the first and second phase of the original contract. They have also delivered a third phase of apparatus that was extended from the original order plus the LAFD is due to recieve more Pierce Arrow XT's.

    None of the LAFD engines have CAFS capabilities. They have the ability to pump class A foam plus all engines carry AFFF and "Barricade" fire retardant.

    There are several LAFD pick up trucks that have CAFS systems in place and are mostly used when called upon during brush fires where uban interface situations arise.

    Orlando site has a great night time photo of a new 2005 Pierce.

    As for my site here is a good day time comparison of the two 2005 LAFD Engines.

    Seagrave cab & chassis : ( Marauder II Stainless Steel ) ( concord Aluiminum ) and the fixed cab ( Commander II galvaneal ) . We have a 1992 Seagrave Marauder 10 man split with a " galvaneal cab , do you know when they changed over to all stainless?

    They made the decision to switch to only stainless steel, due to paint problems with the galvaneal. Basically with all the chemicals used on the roads these days, It is very hard to keep the paint on any type metal. Especially on the east coast.

    Looks nice! How much have they, (Seagrave), done with the interior of that cab. Have they increased the room for the officer & driver? Is the engine doghouse smaller? My company has a Marauder cab and the guys do not like the room up front for the driver & officer. The crew area is ok. Also, will the new re-design meet the new engine requirements, not only for '07 but '10?
    Anybody know?

    Bgcjmc,
    We are currently specing out a Rescue-pumper and have been talking to Seagrave. They stated the Cab was 96" wide as opposed to the 94" on the current Maurder. The cab length was increased 3". That lowered the doghouse inside by 4" from what the reps said. By making the cab longer they made the cab doors and window openings larger also. As for the engine, the front grill area was increased for the new '07 EPA requirements.

    Cool Beautiful.......

    Seagrave7,
    That is a beautiful Engine. Not so sure about the speedometer on the Captain's side though, sometimes I like it that my Captain can't see how fast I am going..... LOL
    I noticed that your Department has gone away with the vertical stacks, is there a specific reason?

    I don't know what LAFD keeps in those shorter compartments, but I like the way they look. I think (maybe someone a lot more knowledgeable could chime in) they look that way because they are decendents of the old "add-on" tailboard side compartments.

    In the old days there was a diagonal angle of body work that came down from the top of the hosebed to the tailboard (sort-of to separate the side from the back), and departments would mount extinguishers or playpipe nozzles or suction strainers on the diamond plate tailboard section in that dead corner space, but somewhere in the late 70s to mid 80s some apparatus manufacturers offered to put a shallow, not real tall compartments there. This looks like a modernized version of that.

    As far as practicality, I think they may use that surface on the top of these compartments as the final step to get up into the hosebed? I've seen various LA companies put water coolers, traffic cones, and nothing up on top of those compartments.

    Because of their height and shallow depth, I'd guess they keep small stuff in there, like handtools, cribbing, hose adaptors and fittings, maybe even some clean-up stuff, like shovel, broom, etc.? I'd be curious to know what LAFD keeps in there too...
