250 trucks in nine years, I did not think this is where I would end up. What started as a simple suggestion made this into an international company, featured in three articles, displayed in the Pierce Mfg. booth at FRI, 15 trucks built for raffles / donation. I have had a great time building all the different trucks over the years.
This truck was a project that took over a year to design, work out all of the details and over seven weeks to build. There was a great amount of debate on which truck would be the 250th. It seemed appropriate to build Brighton Fire’s Tower 51 as the 250th truck. I have built this truck a total of 15 times and this will be the last time.
Here are the details for this truck:
- The front bumper compartment opens and has all of its equipment.
- The front wheels are steerable.
- The cab tilts.
- Detailed engine compartment.
- All the cab doors open and close.
- The cab is detailed just as the full size version has.
- The pump panel step slides out.
- All the outriggers slide out, deploy down and stabilize the truck.
- All the compartment doors open and close.
- All the compartments have their appropriate equipment.
- The aerial rotates, lifts, extends and retracts.
- The platform doors opens and closes.
- The platform can be leveled.
