New Satellites in Production

Jason Ingram posted some pics of the new satellites in production at Ferrara on the NYC Fire Buffs Facebook page.  And yes, they're on Peterbuilt chassis.

Thanks for sharing, looks like they've made some significant changes comparing these to the existing satellites. Of course the the Peterbilt cabs is the biggest one but the walk-through to accessing deck gun will be a nice feature. I don't remember, are the existing deck guns able to be remotely controlled like these appear to be?

Don't know, Bull, but it was my understanding that they planned to take the deck guns from the existing satellites and mount them on the new ones.  I don't know if that is happening.

It would appear in those photos that there is "something" that looks like a monitor/deck gun in place.

I agree, C'ville . . . but are they new or from the existing Macks?  Perhaps a member from one of the satellite host engine companies (or a knowledgeable buff) can help.  Are the deck guns gone from the existing satellites?

Here's what appears to be an answer to the monitor question.  This photo of Satellite 5 was taken at today's 10-75 on Staten Island. As you can see, the monitor is still on the rig, and it looks nothing like the monitors on the new ones. Picture from SI Live.

I was part of a team that spec'd two rigs with high volume Williams Fire Control Nozzles. Very good at flowing high volume of Dry Chemical, water and foam.
