    I knew I had these pictures somewhere, just took awhile to find them. I'm pretty sure they are 8FG, they're Hale pumps anyways. They are from years ago when I was first researching rear mounts.

      I should note, I believe those pics are all Saulsbury built trucks.

        I tend to agree with this ideology. Our department has one 8FG: on an aerial platform. The pumpers still get the Q-Max. To echo an earlier statement, The 8FG is well-suited for a "big water" truck.

        Don't know if this is important, but the 8FG is only available with mechanical seals.

          This one isn't a Hale but would is a similar manifold set-up. The exception is the 8FG would require two 6" intakes.

            I don't recall the details on this rig. Maybe Blitzfiresolo can chime in.

              Here is the Hale drawing for that pump. It does not come standard with a manifold. It comes with an 8" suction flange and a 6" discharge flange.

                That is a Waterous S100, looks to be the version with a 6" Victaulic inlet. It is also available with an 8" inlet.

                      It's only a 6" intake because it's rated for 1500 gpm rather the 2000. If 2000 gpm is enough, I believe the S100 is a better option then Hale. Dual stripping edges balance out the side load on the shaft.
