    Watch the Weight

    My only concern with the GMC 4500 and 5500 is a weight issue. I saw some units at Harrisburg I thought might be very close on axle weight rating with out personel onboard. I don't think they are a bad unit just make sure when you are specificying the unit that you do not ask more of it than it will be able to give you. I would suggest going the next step up and use a true medium duty and not a softened up medium duty.

    firenresq77 has one at his department.(www.northwoodfire.com) unit 806........it is a midi pumper ........cant recall the price they paid and I believe 4 x4 is available as well.
