    Default Precision top rear mount

    Does anyone know what departments may have purchased an engine by Precision Fire Apparatus with the top rear mount pump panel?

    ETFD is the Elizabeth Township FD in Allegheny County, PA. Here's a link, with some rig photos: Elizabeth Twp, PA.

    Here's another one from Pennsylvania: Liberty Borough, PA

    And here's yet another variation on the same design: Ennis, TX.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks! This designs looks good. It does seem to squeeze the size of the hosebed in the rear though. I wonder what type of hose loads they have on them?

    bookworm,

    I think the hose bed would be longer but narrower. Perhaps and advantage, less turns in the hose to cause wear and potential leaks. Also, it puts all the hose closer to the curb when you laying line. I like it!

    The department I just got hired at has all precision apparatus but none are the command view that youre looking at.
