    I just wanted to say thank you to all the people on here with all the knowledge regarding apparatus. You've all been a great help, weather you've known it or not. I've picked up a lot in the conversations and the pm's/threads that I was involved in and it went a long way in specing our new pumper. Thanks again.

    224" wb
    2009 Cummins ISM 500 hp
    EVS4000 transmission

    UPF 750 gal tank with 25 gal Class A foam cell
    15k SmartPower generator

          Looks great, can't wait to see more pics of it. Was this built in the OH or NY facility?

            It was built at Corp in Ohio. It worked out really well, we are less than 4 hours drive from the factory. It was relatively easy to get down for inspection trips.

            Being from Corp, the body is 3/16" extruded aluminum.

              Here are some additional pics. I'll get some additional pics of the compartments up as soon as I can. There was some very nice work by a company called Fire and Marine, Inc. They do most of Sutphen's compartment and mounting work.

                Looks nice. Couple questions.

                1) Is that a coffin compartment driver's side?

                2) How do you get the ladder down?

                3) You mind if I stop by to look at it some time? I work in Erie.

                  1. Yep, thats a coffin up top. It's got the 200' coord reel for that side and foam, some brush fire equipment, and hazmat stuff.

                  2. That's a Zico mount that pivots out and then straight down.It puts the ladders at the correct height about 12-14" from the side of the truck. It's better option than the old pivoting arms like we have on our other engines.

                  3. Sure, just PM me and we can set up a time.

                      Somebody's wallet is crying because of that beautiful rig. But I do believe it was well worth it, very sharp lookin truck.

                        Whats the height of the hose bed? It looks lower than most of the other rescue pumpers I've seen.

                          Bottom of the hosebed is 5' from the tailboard. The top is 7'8" from the tailboard, so it's a shade under 10'. overall height is 10'7". OAL is 34'7".

                            Nice rig. I like the guard they built to protect that light tower from tree limbs!

                            Personally, I've always disliked the look of Sutphen's front cab lights... It IS distinctive though- you'll always know a Sutphen when you see one.

                            How many does that cab seat?

                              The guard is an evil necessity. We don't have one on our other engine, but it's a flat cab. I can definitely see trees getting hit with this one.

                              The cab seats 6 total. We didn't like the amount of room that the standard length cab gave us, we were knocking knees in street clothes. We also have the LFD cab on our 1993 Sutphens with 7 total seats. Needless to say, it's huge in there with only the 4 seats in the back.
