    Still going strong? Your right. I am sure that the E-One and every vehicle every made by anyone, usually runs well in the shop. However some have a tendancy to fall apart as soon as the actual driver puts the gear in Drive.

    Maybe he was refering to Ladder 62? They seem to be taking in a lot of jobs without problems or a breakdown.

    The rumor is they cant have it yet, because the city still owes some money on it.

    I dont mean to sound like a jerk.... but.... for the cost of most fire appartus and the way the cost is rising.... I dont think many departments get their money worth out of it.


    Especially in Busy Urban departments where 1/2 the time the rig is in the shop and the replacement backup rig is right next to it.

    The cost of new trucks and such is outragous and the quality of most is lacking to say

    Thumbs up Looks Like Ours.............

    We've just finished (I think we're finished, you know how Committees are ) designing a replacement for our 1992 Spartan/Marion Heavy Rescue. The FDNY Rig looks pretty close to what we have come up with, and yes, a Pierce. The old one is still going strong, but as some have said, with the help of our Shop. Old one is at www.gdvfd18.com but the new design isn't up yet. It will be Black over Chrome Yellow, same as our '05 Pierce Engine.

    This truck is going to New York FDNY correct? I'd say they probably run more calls in one month (with this truck) then alot of peoples fd do in a year. As I said they'll get their dollars use out of it.

    Very much so, can't say I've ever had major issues with Pierce, though, this will be a test.

    R1 and R2 usually do about the same # of runs , but R2 catches alot more working jobs than any other Rescue Co. in the city.

    How come everyone is so worrried about the cost? Nobody complains when some small vollie dept pays $2 million to out-do the neighboring towns dept.

    I know I'll take some heat for this, but I see it happen all the time.

    Actually, I could care less how much they (FDNY) or anyone else spends on a truck, helmet, or sandwich. We are buying a new rescue. I wanted to know how much they spent. We are not a "vollie" dept., and are not trying to "out-do" anyone.
