My dept. before I retired used both from Sutphen mainly. I always preferred the Cummins. I just looked up Pierce new deliveries and some are speced with Detroit diesel engines.

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.

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.

Interesting looking truck and by appearances it matches the FDNY rescues, I wonder if it matches all other aspects that the contract requires?

Doesn’t FDNY require single manufacturer? As in the fact the box is made by Rescue 1 disqualify them?

Another reason why they "paint themselves in a corner". As I've stated before what will they do when there are no bidders?

Does anyone have or know where to see the spec for the NEW Ladders?

Really quick 'n' dirty mockup:

SeagraveFDNYRescue1e.jpg

This is actually the second time that I have mocked up a Seagrave FDNY Rescue. The first was when we built the Seagrave/Saulsbury rescue for Berwyn Heights, MD (later sold to Annville.) It was a customer-supplied Seagrave chassis, but we got the CAD drawings for it. So, for fun, I put it on the E-One/Saulsbury FDNY design that I was working on. Don't recall if I ever printed them out.

Can anyone explain to me why anyone needs a 2000 GPM pumper? And where do you find the water supply for it?
