    Do you have a pic of the front bumper open? it looks like it has spreader, cutter,and a 1 3/4" in there.

    Does the lid on the bumper block air flow to the radiator when up?

    Ok sorry for not posting any info about the truck, was in a little bit of a rush when I just put the pic up. The truck is a 2007 Pierce Quantum. Cab seats 8 total with an ems compartment. I believe the body is around a 20ft. box with steps up the rear. All of the steps open up together, for a larger rear compartment. As far as the pump and hose go, we also have an additional 2 engine companies so there was no need for them (all rescues boxes have an engine company dispatched). I believe it is either a 35k or 40k generator. The usual light tower up top. The front bumper carries a hydralic reel for a hurst maverick tool. An additional electric reel is on the other side. As for as equipment goes, typical rescue company. 1 spreader, 2 mavericks, 1 cutter. Air cart, air struts, cascade system, fans, saws, fridge, cribbing, ladders, etc. Its all the usual equipment you need to get the job done. Price wise, I really dont know how much, I was not on the committee that spec'ed out the rig. Any other questions just ask.

    A new Pierce Saber non walkin rescue is selling for $ 390,000, so your departments new rig must be over the $ 550,000 range ?

    regarding the tool cover on the bumper, anyone had issues with the cover affecting the headlights at night?

    The truck has just been delievered to the station. I am not able to drive the rig, so as far as the headlights go, I dont have an answer for you. If I hear anything I will post it.

    I know you don't know the cost but can you check to see what it was? Also do you have web site with more pics?

    I would suggest that the lights would be affected in some way by that large bumper, hence the driving lights under the bumper perhaps?

    Just my input on the headlights situation - it seems pretty obvious to me that when the tool cover is hinged up, it will block the headlights. However, is that really a big deal? No, it shouldn't be.

    Remember that headlights were never designed to light the emergency scene. We may use them for that from time to time, but remember why we're spending thousands of dollars on light towers, floods, and generators - to light the scene!

    The department I work for has an SOG about turning the headlights off (leaving the parking lights on) on calls after dark, and it doesn't effect our emergency operations at all. In fact, on the new rig we're spec'ing at the VFD, we're having the headlights automatically turn off when the parking brake is applied. The reason behind this? Burning headlights stand a greater chance of temporairly blinding on coming civilians and other responding apparatus, so we simply shut 'em off.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled discussion...
