    Thumbs down Seagrave website

    What gives?

    Please check back as we are updating new content in conjunction with the launch of the new Seagrave website.

    For more information in the interim, visit our Brochure Downloads where you can view or print off our product brochures.

    Additional content for this section will be available in the next few days.
    Hasn't the new site been up for a few months?

    Even some of the smaller builders update their sites weekly or daily.

    maybe they are focusing on fixing and building new trucks. How many people actually use a website to purchase fire trucks from?

    A fire apparatus web site is very helpfull in finding new or demo apparatus that maybe for sale, and also for looking at new deliveries in your local area. Some sites offer apparatus drawings to check out O.A.L. , O.A.H., hose beds,etc!..and pricing.

    If you go to the downloads area of the website they have a ton of drawings on there you can download as a PDF file, they also have updated a lot of areas of the website. Some areas I agree need to be updated. We have downloaded a lot of the drawings to look at ideas for our new engine and they seem to be updated quite frequently. It is still better than the website they had last year i think

    You would be surprised. Alot of departments or people dont have the financial resources to travel and look at other departments trucks, and thats a cheap and inexpensive way to get idea's.

    Maybe those reasons posted above are why I see some really poorly designed fire apparatus these days.

    I am not sure what your talking about, if your talking bout departments specing trucks off manufacturers web pages or demos I beg to differ if a community needs a basic stock vehicle or one with a few options its a good way to spec apparatus I dont know where your getting at with poor designs. Not everyone needs all the bells and whistles on their trucks.

    No, I don't know their needs better than they do. Not sure where you came up with that.

    When a department gets an engine that is not what they were looking for and you ask why'd they get it then?

    "They say it looked good on the website."
    "We didn't bother to go see any actual trucks."
    "This is what the salesman showed us."
    "It was too much effort to go to a tradeshow and see what's being offered."
    "The drawings looked good on paper"

    What do you expect from a company who is 150 years behind schedule.

    Wow! Lastout, do I detect a little distension here? At least Seagrave can claim 126 years of continuous service. Find another company that has the same history. They may not meet your high standards but they are still selling trucks. Thats a tall order to match. They have had their issues but the bottom line is they are still here.

    Sutphen has been around a long time, started in 1890.

    Sutphen began in 1890 as a dream of C.H. Sutphen. His son, Harry, took an interest in the business and carried it on until his death.

    Harry's two sons, Thomas and Robert, joined the business after World War II. They gained experience and job responsibility over the years, with Robert becoming Chairman of the Board and Thomas President of the Company.

    Sutphen has over 116 years of operation; making it the oldest continuously owned and operated fire apparatus manufacturers in the country. Never reorganized, owned and operated by anyone other than a Sutphen, family atmosphere is apparent.

    You would be correct about the "bottom line", they need some serious help in the service dept.

    You say Seagrave is 150 years behind the times then you're bitching about service. The service (or lack of) in NJ has nothing to do with how the truck is manufactured.

    Are FDNY, DCFD, LAFD and many others behing the times??
