The warrantee is very very strict .. That's why KME & FERRARA don't bid anymore.Yes, I know new rescues are being put into service as I type this. But now that it seems Ferrara and KME are no longer bidding on FDNY contracts. is anybody willing to speculate on who might build the NEXT rescues? I don't recall Seagrave ever bidding on them in the past, so who? WAGs and results of anal extraction welcome.
KME is very busy with allot of builds and should not have bid on the previous contract. After recieving the contact they backed out causing a large gap of unbuilt fire apparatus for the FDNY.
Once again Seagrave bailed everyone out. All frontline apparatus by 2026 will be Seagraves only. That makes it allot easier for the mechanics at shops and the tag road mechanics. Now the management at shops only has to order Seagrave parts for the frontline apparatus...Yes there are still Batt cars ect but it's much easier regarding Seagrave parts.
