    What exactly are you looking for? extended cab or some sort of custom job? We use Spartans with 14" behind the rear doors.

    Do you mean a 10 man cab? or some custom sleeper cab?
    BTW, putting 10 men in a ten man cab is very "cozy".

    You cant beat Fallons trucks for features. I would like to know how reliable they have been, as they have many things that could break.

    Its hard for me to see 10 FF comming out of one of thoes cabs.

    Sorry, but those Fallon/Churchill trucks always rubbed me wrong. Someone had too much money and checked every box on the order form.

    You mean they checked every box and then had 4 pages of "extras". I believe that Larry Stevens designed thoes trucks to lower their ISO. I think they are at a 1 in town, and a 3 in non-hydrant areas, which is amazing considering they are a VFD.

    Fallon does have a full-time firefighter / mechanic (rest of department AFAIK is all volunteer) so I'm sure that goes a long way to making sure everything is regularly tested and repaired promptly.

    Now, if you let your mind drift just slightly into the gutter...this is just soooo wrong:

    We use Spartans with 14" behind the rear doors.

    They do look a bit over the top but I guess if you have to make one truck do it all, thats what its going to look like. I guess it would be considered a pumper - tanker - ladder -rescue

    Really though at $380,000 thats not a bad deal when you consider they probably couldn't buy 2 engines under $400,000. 5 years ago the department I was working for was spec'ing out a new engine and the best deal we got was a standard GSA 1250 gpm, 750 gallon pumper made by Pierce for $230,000. Even buying two of those we wouldn't be able to get that much gear and personnel on scene and it would cost another $80,000. That was 5 years ago it is probably closer to $300,000 for that same pumper now. So I guess I have to give them credit for thinking outside the box.

    Remember that price of $380k was in 1995. Im sure they would be over $500k if built today.

    You're right I didn't see the year on them. I thought that seemed like quite a deal for all those gizmos.

    I'd hate to be the guy that has to strip the truck when it goes in for major maintenance, thats a shift and a half easy.

    I agree that they do have a lot of "stuff" on the trucks. I think what they wanted was a truck that could respond to a fire or MVA and do what ever needs to be done without aditional units.
    They are deffinatly "do it all" trucks.

    The links are good.

    It's just whenever they're posted here, all the photos cause them to excede the bandwidth limits at Geocities.

    Check back every so often, they'll work.

    Sorry...Just too much stuff on each truck for me- Hosebeds, ladders, etc. Too much weight, electronics, etc.

    Me- I like simple and functionable.
