    Default OES Engines

    These engines are owned by the California Office of Emergency services are loaned out to various california fire departments interested in housing one at no cost, The engine's can be used as reserve engine or sent on mutual aid responses, In return for this the department agrees to man them when needed and deploy them anywhere within California for any reason fire, earthquake etc

    215 and 281 are the new style. We have an engine like them and it is a good concept, although built out of aluminum with a little more attention to detail would be real nice too. As well as less than 800 gallons of water and we got doors instead of roll-ups.

    Those old Fords are real peaches, they have a 5+2 manual transmission, does anyone remember how to operate those any more?

    Are you referring to what I call a split axle - where every gear has a high and low? Our old tanker that we got rid of 2 years ago (finally) had a 5 speed with every gear split between a high and low. It was a lot of fun to drive and pretty funny watching new guys try to get the hang of too.
