Just in time for the 2020 fire season, I have a 1995 International G4900 Type-3 4x4 Wildland Fire Engine for sale, only 4747.2 original miles! Here is a quick history of this Apparatus. This Unit was custom built and used by the Burlington Fire Department in MA, in 2014 it was traded-in to Firematic when they bought a new Wildland Engine. The Fire Department I purchased it from, bought it from Firematic in 2014 with 3,900 miles, they were the vehicles second owners. They used this Engine the last 6 years as their first-out Wildland Fire response unit. It was replaced this year with a newer Wildland Engine. The unit is fully operational, in nice overall condition, its got many years of service life remaining. 6.4L International engine, Allison 4 speed automatic transmission, (2) speed transfer case (High/Low), air brakes, P/S, New 22.5” steel rims and Goodyear G622 RSD 10R 22.5” traction tires, 100% tread remaining ($5400 receipt included).
