    Here's our new truck that just got delivered Friday. 2,500 gallon, 1,750 Waterous. '06 KW chassis with a Rosenbauer body.

    Now the wait is on to hear about our gear and SCBA for this year.

    Thats a nice looking truck! I do like the lowered rear
    warning lights, out here in the rural world, tree monsters
    like to try to reach out and steal those lights if they
    are up top.

    I think you, sir. I liked that option as well, and had the tree monsters in mind at the time. Now I just need to teach more guys to drive it.....I think.

    I'll warn you while you wait on yours, the anticipation will drive you NUTS.

    Looks alot like what we have ordered - only difference was we didn't go with the top mount (lenght issue).

    Central States is finally talking to us - Truck was to be delivered last week. They are starting construction and we should have the truck around the middle of January, 2007. That's almost 365 days after we signed tghe contract.

    Sounds about par for the course. We went over the year mark by about a week or so. You'll be happy when it does finally get there, I'm sure. right now, that's really the only complaint I've had. Other than they've got the linkage of two of the discharges swapped. When you pull Discharge 1, Discharge 2 opens. Honest mistake I guess when you're messing with that many levers.

    Make sure to post some pics, I wanna see them.

    Default time frame

    Same for us when we purchased our rescue pumper from them (2004 Grant), but we did know about the time frame upfront from our local dealer. The only issue we had was they had the chassis for several months and did not start on it. Once they did start they flew on it though. We have been extremely happy with it since delivery.

    Catch 22 do you mind listing some of the general specs on your new Apparatus. And maybe the builder.

    Thanks

    You didn't find anything wrong that they had to take it back and delay it for a bit longer, eh? Nice truck man, big ol' thing.

    Default Only a couple issues

    Waiting on rest of 5" LDH - the short lengths came in, waiting on the 100' lengths.

    Problem with some of the pump panel lights

    Biggest issue - Wrong type of Stortz adapters on the steamers. The hose we have in has the normal 2 lug stortz.

    The adapters on the steamers are all a 3 lug stortz - never have seen this type before (normally 2 lugs). Nothing like a square peg in a round hole. Stole officerside piston intake off our engine and out on rear suction to get it in service.

    One cool thing we added - a 2nd primer which is setup to allow you to prime your suction infront of the gate valves on the driverside and rear side. Allows you to fill suction line before you open the valve. Have a swivel ordered for rear suction to make a beaver tale for quick drafting.

    Nice to have a tanker the goes straight (old one felt like the rearend was trying to pass the front) and has brakes.

    We found out on ours (on it's first fire, mind you) that they crossed the linkages on two of the discharges. When you pulled Discharge 1, #2 opened and vice versa. Gave up waiting on them to deal with it so we got in there and swapped them out ourself.

    I can't say as I've ever seen 3-lug storz, either. Interesting. At least it's there and in service.

    Did Candid Camera put that truck together Mike? That would have made for good footage.

    The swapped up discharges wasn't near as funny as when a certain member who is a certified driver/operator and a driver/engineer on his career department couldn't figure out why in the world the LDH discharge wouldn't open. Kinda forgot that those have the slow-open/close valves.

    I jerked on that thing a dozen times before it hit me. If we ever get to buy another new truck, it's getting specced with a wheel valve on the LDH discharge to preven that sort of embarassment.
