You might be right about dropping Detroit. Supposedly, they had a lot of issues due to electrical components and the DPF system. Cummins basically has the monopoly at this point. Life would be a lot better if fire trucks were exempt from the DPF standard. Caterpillar got out of the over-the-road business because of their issues with the DPF system.I get the feeling that Pierce mfg just dropped Detroit Diesel and switched to PACCAR motors for their engine option. I saw this in their chassis pages that they only offer Cummins and PACCAR motors. They must’ve dropped Detroit recently which they had exclusive rights to.
New Haven' s rig is a Seagrave chassis with a Rescue 1 body. https://rescue1mfg.com/new-haven-fire-dept/I'd guess Seagrave, if not Ferrara. Right now, Seagrave seems to be the only manufacturer able to meet the departments requirements. Also recently they have stepped up thier rescue game, just look at New Haven's R*1.
That’s a sharp looking truck. Seagrave make SOME of the best looking trucks out there.
Just wondering about the special emblems on various companies such as the "Pride of the Point" emblem on this unit. If the design and implementation of it paid for by the company themselves or to the FDNY pay for the genocide in implementation of the logos? You get on most companies including the sides of tower ladders.
