    I'm sure this will split the room in half, but i got a good chuckle out of i so I thought Id share.
    It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.

    It take more than a new Leather Helmet to make you a good officer

          In a recent tiller purchase, E-One was beat out by Pierce. The Pierce was
          $31,000.00 CHEAPER ,I was told...It was for Quebec City, Que., Canada.

          http://www.spiq.ca/v2/vehicules/2011...ier/index.html

          E-ONE and Pierce were the only 2 to tender a bid.

          Who would have thought....

            I have seen bid awards this year in different parts of the U.S. where Seagrave, E-One,Ferrara, over bid Pierce Mfg ! Maybe due to the weak economy?

              I'd say your right. I was told from a man that owns a consulting service that in 2008 around 5500 new firetrucks was sold and in 2010 that number was down to around 3500. Manufactures are having to sharpen their pencils.

                I've recently seen 10-15 bidders for a Pump when before you'd get maybe 3-5 and some are builders never heard of OR have no dealer or representation just trying to take a shot at getting an order.

                Also I've seen Pierce $100K LOW on a Platform and then be $100K high on a 100 ft. Quint go figure... Same goes for Pumpers lately too where there's a $100K spread between the low and high bidder..

                  That is puzzling to me also, especially when there is a 46k spread using the same Spartan cab and chassis; and it wasn't the RFP. It was very detailed.

                    Yes I agree and when you ask the FD they say the low bid complied YES to everything even if it wasn't there spec though "they met the intent"...lol There isn't/can't be that much discrepancy because the costs are almost the same for all reputable builders as to components (cab & chassis, pump, warning package etc.) so the only saving is in labour and there again can't be that much of a discrepancy in hourly labor rates so must be the dealer (if applicable) has lowered their commission or the Koolaid ingrediants got cheaper...

                      The biggest spread in price can be a 'cookie cutter' vs a true custom build truck.

                            I can see a $100k spread between a program pumper and a custom pumper with a big block motor, but how can one builder be so much cheaper than the next using the same pump, motor, & trans . The only way would be the " Labor Rates ' per employee ?

                              A ladder with a 2K pump in a Borough with hydrants that could probably barely give you 1K???

                              You didn't get the kool aid. You guys all got the chip implants.
