Located in Dacula, Georgia, this truck was owned two fire departments prior to being replaced in 2015. The truck cranks, drives, engine runs great, transmission shifts great, batteries are good with 2 new in 2016, tires are good, pump works according to last FD. but has worn impeller requiring high RPM for proper flow test., According to last FD, Boom/ladder work however, a pulley bolt will require welding to work properly (see photo). One thing that needs to be mentioned is the truck is heavy and slow, 45mph is a comfortable cruising speed for the truck and engine, will do 55mph+ but you are pushing it hard when you are doing it, look at the weight, truck weight is almost 40,000#. Very nice truck to a 1979 year model. Great for parades! Some surface rust has been painted over but it"s in overall good condition (see photo of untouched surface rust)
Please take the time to look at complete description, view all the photos of the truck so you will know what you are getting.
