engines and ladders and panels oh my!

As promised...........
the new pumper!

I won't bore you with the details of truck geekery and techno talk but this baby pumps just over six thousand litres of water a minute.

And look at the gorgeous pump panel.

And just so the ladder truck doesn't feel jealous, here it is along with its pump panel:

I really love this truck although the back end swings out like crazy when turning a corner and doesn't handle well in the snow. It's an old truck and even if it's lacking in state of the art electronics, it pumps water just fine. The pump panel is old school... :) And I love the 105 ft ladder. Fully extended and flowing water at full capacity is something to behold.
