    Default Hey Bou or you other California Lads.....

    Hey Bou or you other California Lads.....

    Somewhere on the internet, (and if I remember correctly, the link was on some kind of a West Coast Fire Buff's webpage) I have seen a video of a tiller making a response to an overturned vehicle accident. The video was from the tiller seat. I cant remember the Department, but I know it wasn't LA City or County. I do remember it was a KME tiller, and it was painted white over red.

    Do you guys (or anyone else for that matter) remember this and do you have the link?????

    Thanks!

    Wow- I was looking for those links. I think the South County Fire Authority folded up or de-consolidated awhile back.

    Damn- I miss tillering too.

    *ahem* Youre welcome.

    When I used to tiller, I swear we never chattered as much as those guys. Must have been for the camera.

    I thought it was pretty good. I've never tillered before but if I were the guy in the bucket I'd want to know which way the tractor was going to go before the wheels get turned.
    May have a chance as our dept. is considering getting them again.

    Good call. I wont give a class on tillering in here, when I was in the back, I never really had to talk to the driver for a couple of reasons.

    - Once he/she starts to make a turn, you just automaticly react to it. It just comes natural.

    - If they use their blinker ahead of time, easy money.

    But mainly, it just comes to you and you steer the back of the truck with the front no problem.

    Hope that explains it.
