    Default They definately build big trucks

    I have looked at a couple of their demostrators over the years - they are HUGE trucks. Bottom of hosebed was over 10 feet - we joked we could mount a basketball backboard on the back of the truck.

    That is deffinatley not a photoshop....Yea its big, but it isnt much bigger than most. Its just a typical semi chassis. 377 Peterbilt to be exact. Would work great for a rural dept for water shuttle. Like some said, the hose bed and ladders are there for NFPA and the ISO rating. As LCFD said, the tag axle raises the gross weight rating. The more axles you have, the more weight you can haul. If you couldnt handle this rig on the road you dont need to be driving anyway.

    There are half a dozen photos of this rig in the Youngstown Fire Forums. These are different photos than are shown on the Blanchat web site and are clear, close views of this apparatus.
