    You could add Vergennes to that list, they have an IH Front Mount with a reel.
    I thought they had one but I wasn't sure. I think there are a couple of departments down that way as well that run smaller 1-ton 4WD units as well (besides Ferrisburgh).

    Full-Sized Engine:

    Essex Town
    Underhill-Jericho
    Cambridge

    Small Chassis:

    Ferrisburgh

    There are likely many more as these types of rigs are very common in the state.

    I have not seen it advertised in a few years somebody built a source pumper , 4x4 navistar 4800? with a crane that had a hydraulic pump attach to the end. Rosenbauer Europe mounted a portable pump on rubber tracks.

    Here's one from a department in WI. Not 1000+ GPM, but the same idea:

    Right from Sister Bay's website!

    Hose Company #25
    Hose company 25 operates a 1997 Saulsbury / Navistar 4900 all wheel drive water supply truck.

    Hose #25 is equipped with a 1250 GPM front mount hale pump and a Hannay Large Diameter Hose reel with 4,000 feet of Angus LDH (large diameter hose).


    There are multiple pics of it at this link:

    Seventh District VFD in Avenue, MD runs something similar to what you're looking for: Water Supply 5. This also features a pump panel in the cab between the driver's and officer's seats.

    started a topic Source Pumpers/Rural Water Supply Units

    Source Pumpers/Rural Water Supply Units

    I'm looking to gather some information on units designed as "source pumpers", "pond pumpers", "water supply units", rural "hose tenders/wagons", or any number of names they might fall under. In general, I'm looking for something that meets the following conditions:

    1. Four-wheel drive (generally commercial chassis) and other good off-road capabilities (super singles/floatation tires, good ground clearance and angles of approach/departure, etc)

    2. Front-mount pump (generally 1,000+ GPM)

    3. Large bed (or reel) of LDH, and/or vehicle is specifically designed for water supply purposes


    If you use or know of any units that meet any two out of the three features above, I'd appreciate a photo, a link, or department name. For example, perhaps it's a 4x4 rural water supply unit but has a midship pump, or it's a 4x4, front-mount pump, but not specifically intended for water supply - either of those would still be fine.

    Even if the rigs have been posted on these boards here before (Sister Bay, WI, Sherman, CT, etc), I'd still be interested in having the pictures posted here so that this thread serves as a sort of "collection point" for them. I'd also be interested in hearing from departments that are currently considering the design of a similar unit.
