    We recently ordered a Pierce Velocity engine. Expected delivery is late April or early May. Standard pumper with a 750 tank and a 1500 pump.

    We operate with 2 1996 Pierce engines and a 2001 Pierce 105'HD rear mount quint. A 1988 Mack CF\Pierce engine is one of our spares.

    Not quite correct. We currently have only one Velocity Ladder (L-22). We do, however, have one PUC in service (E-7). You are right in saying more PUC's are on order, but I understand they may be on Arrow-XT chassis. I think we are trying to set a record of ordering one of everything from Pierce in a 12-month period.

    Might you have a picture of the PUC? MDCFR seems to always have some pretty good looking rigs (the Unimog and 60' quints comes to mind), and I'm sure this one is no exception.

    awhile back I was seeing so many Miami trucks roll through that I was beginning to think that you got some major package deal

    Add another to the list. Waynesboro, VA with a Quantum PUC.
