    Default 4 X 4 - Quint

    Anyone building a 4 X 4, 75', Quint? Anyone got any pictures of one? I'm sure they exist out there somewhere.

    KME will do it. They are the only ones that I know of for sure; there may be others. Philly Fire had one at the airport, but it got wrecked a while ago, not sure when/if it will go back in service.

    I think Spartan makes a 4x4 chassis that looks like a 4x2 chassis, it is low to the ground.

    im not sure if Pierce makes a 4x4 in a custom chassis, but its hard to believe they wouldent, for a cost.

    They do for sure on the arrow XT (first pic), but I am not sure what chassis the second one is on.

    Sorry for the links, they won't compress.

    Wow, don't turn too fast in one of those.


    Solid looking units though.

    Default Ferrara makes 4x4

    Ferrara offers 4x4 on Inferno and Igniter series custom cabs. Go to www.ferrarafire.com and click on Ferrara Chassis tab for details.
