500 gallons foam onboard
84,000 GVWR -(techically illegal on the highway) oops

A few more. Man what a smooth ride!
Thats a Texas Chute. I dont know why TX gets all the credit for cool creations but I like TX so eh :)

I didnt get a picture of the hose racks that pull out the rear for loading. SUPER cool if they don't break over time....

That is a sweet tower!!! The only trouble is that they keep getting BIGGER and BIGGER. How big it the ladder. I see it's a Pierce. Is it the sky Arm??

Yep, it's 100'. And YEP! I do love it but it is almost too damn big! And, it has the ^@@#$ DPF Filter and urea :( I hear a local city (Downey) is having to take their newest Engine OOS once a week for regeneration! That's BS, they should have an exemption.

Now, you have to burn fuel at high RPM for +/- 40 minutes to SAVE emissions? :4-looney:

That Regen sucks. One of our guys almost set our FD a blaze with our new rescue because he didn't know about it. We are trying to get our 2 pumpers replaced and we wanted them to be DPF delete but we were told that it's to expensive for the engine manufacturers to have 2 engine lines an that we are S.O.L.
