This Fire Engine is loaded with extras, if your serious about securing a dynamic firefighting platform don"t let this one get away! Just in time for the 2020 fire season, I have an immaculate 1992 Mack Custom Fire Engine with 32,123 original miles & 1676 engine hours. The Apparatus meets the requirement for a Type-1 Structural Fire Engine or a Type-3 Support Water Tender with the 1000 gallon poly water tank with a couple of modifications. This unit was meticulously maintained by the fire department that developed its very unique build specifications, along with its enhanced firefighting capabilities, it has a very short turning radius with its cab forward design enhancing its maneuveribility. As I identified above it is in exceptional condition, the Red exterior paint is almost flawless, looks like she rolled off the showroom floor. It was just removed from service after being replaced by a new engine, 100% operational!
Air conditioned NFPA 5 person enclosed cab, the 3 rear facing jump seats and the officers seat will reveive an SCBA. (5) SCBA Bottle storage in the center officers side compartment. The pumper body is stainless steel with aluminum accents made by SIMON LTI in PA, the chassis is a Mack MR from Allentown PA. The main fire pump is a Hale single stage 1500 gpm (Model QSMG150-15L). There is a 6 TFT Intake Valve with pressure relief valve ( $1500 ) at the pump panel with a stortz quick connection. The fire engine has a NFPA color coded pump panel that corresponds to discharges and intakes. The Engine also comes with a pre-plumbed Akron Apollo deck gun with a set of stacked tips, the deck gun also has a portable ground base for remote operations ( $3500 ). If you"ve got a good water supply, she can move some really big water!
The Fire Engine is also equipped with a unique Chelsea PTO driven FMC-BEAN Tri-plex 3 Piston high pressure fire pump ( $5000 ), it supplies two electric booster reels, one off each side. The high pressure pump is connected to the Chelsea PTO via a drive belt, it looks almost like a supercharger. The 70 gpm high pressure system is extremely efficient, it can really maximize the 1000 gallons of on-board water. Each booster reel has 200" of high pressure hose on it with specialized high pressure nozzles. The pistol grip nozzles have a trigger, they also allow the user to go from a straight steam to a fog pattern with the twist of your wrist, pretty cool. Using the high pressure fire pump system allows you to conserve the fire engines onboard water, it also facilitates pump and roll firefighting activities. I added some literature on the FMC High Pressure Fire Pump System, its the last photo in the photo section.
The fire engine is also equipped with a built-in STADCO 17,000 Watt Generator thats powered by a Duetz Diesel Engine ( $7,000 ) with a remote in-cab start/stop switch, it can also be started and stopped at the rear of the apparatus, 660 total hours. The generator draws diesel from the 40 gallon main diesel fuel tank, it provides power to the (6) Hi-Intensity Quartz Halogen Scene/flood lights, there are (2) Forward facing Brow scene lights, (2)-telescoping (360 degree scene lights) that recess behind the front light bar, and (2) removable scene lights at the rear of the engine that are mounted on tripods for remote usage. It also supplies power to outlets on both sides of the fire apparatus and an electric 200" hanney cord reel with a multi outlet junction box thats located in the Officers side rear compartment.
The Fire Pumps can be operated individually or together. (3) large diameter suction intakes, 1-front and 1-on each side, there are also 2.5 suction intakes on both sides of the engine. (3)-rear 2.5” discharges, one out of the hose bed. (2) Driver side 2.5 discharges, (2) Officers side 2.5 discharges, one with a stortz adapter on it, (2)-1 3/4 transverse attack lines above the pump panel. I"ve also got a hose bed cover to protect you from embers. the Akron Apollo Deck gun is also preplumbed to the fire pump, there is a 2 pin quick dicconnect for it on top of the pump house.
Easy Mack diesel engine and transmission access with the hydraulic tilt cab, Mack 6 cylinder 300 HP turbocharged engine, 5 speed manual transmission, air conditioning, ward smokeless exhaust system (116 hrs) on-spot tire chains for winter driving. 22.5” Alcoa polished aluminum rims and 11R 22.5 tires, pull out side steps on both sides of the rear box to access the 2 hard suction hoses, (2) 10" 6 hard suction hoses, Kenwood VHF radio, Federal electronic siren with dual speakers and full emergency lighting, the emergency lighting and siren have been disabled per policy . The 3 rear facing jump seats and the officers seat are designed to receive an airpack. The drivers seat is a Bostrom adjustable air ride. The engine also comes equipped with a 24" aluminum extension ladder and a 14" aluminum roof ladder.
With no doubt, this is one of the nicest equipped Fire Engine on the market, its loaded with extras. I"ve added up the costs of some of the the accessories included in the sale ( $17,000 ). This is a really, really good purchase at my buy it now price.
I have all of the apparatus manuals and maintenance records, the unit has a current Dec 2020 safety inspection from Pennsylvania. This unit is ready to go back into municipal service, perform contract work or be used for personal property protection during wildfire season. I reserve the right to terminate the auction early with a full price $16,999 offer. Check my fire apparatus feedback comments on ebay, bid with absolute confidence...
I will store the vehicle up to 60 days with full payment for the new owner to arrange transport. I would also be willing to pick up the new owner at the airport in Richmond VA if your driving her home. I drove her home 250 miles, she drove like a dream. I might consider trading this unit for a Type-5 or 6, 4x4 brush truck in similar condition.
