First off, this truck is awesome! Lets start with just the basics, its a tandem axle (8 tires in the rear, 2 in the front). All tires have good tread. The transmission is an Allison 5 speed automatic and the engine is a 12.7 liter Detroit 60 series. We recently changed the engine oil and filter. I have not taken this vehicle on any long road trips as I had it shipped to me from WI where I purchased it. We have had it running for long periods of time up to 60mph and it runs, drives, stops, shifts, and idles well. The great thing about buying from a municipality is not only did they buy the best at the time, but kept every maintenance record of the vehicle"s entire history. We have all the owners manuals to every part of that truck from the lights, the pump system, the ladder, the engine, transmission, etc. All of the lights are sirens work as they should, including the air horn. We have tested all the hydraulic switches, levers, and functions, and can"t find any leaks or issues. The generator turns on with the flip of a switch and puts out plenty of power. The tank, I"m guessing, holds 300-500 gallons of water and the pump works great. My kids used it as a water cannon on our car lot as we were testing it and shooting it across the lot. There is some loose equipment still on this vehicle (ladders, hooks, etc) and I can supply an extra hose if needed, but only comes with what"s pictured. I do not know how or understand how to operate all the water control functions, but I was able to use the aerial hose and discharge water from the outlets. But I am not 100% certain how to operate all the features. However, the fire truck was in service up until we purchased it, so we ASSUME that everything works per fire dept. standards. The heat and ac both work well in the cab. This truck did come from WI and has some minor rust on the undercarriage. Nothing appears to be beyond surface or affect the integrity of the truck. I"m sure there are dings and scratches as per use, but nothing major that grabs attention walking around the vehicle.
This would make an AWESOME truck for parades, showings, any aerial roofing/contractor work and/or for a local fire department. This ladder is 75ft long and can hold up to 4 people with up to 1000 lbs at the top. The ladder swings a full 360 degree rotation and if you know anything about Pierce, they are built with steel with are very heavy duty. Overall, I think this is a great truck and wouldn"t hesitate to drive it across the country tomorrow except it would be a long, bumpy ride. And the max speed governs around 60mph.
