      Although we don't run tankers(we run engines w/ 1000 gal tanks) One of the departments around us just bought a new tanker. They got a Pierce 2000 gal tanker with a 1000 gpm pump on a Kenworth chassis. I think that it was around 120k. It seems like a pretty nice rig. It looks good and runs well for them.

        Tanker

        Try the local Pierce dealer for a Contender DX Tanker. Should be in that range

        My old Company has an S&S Mack r but they were more than taht back then.

        But the S&S is built very well and looks like new (she is an 1987)

          What size tank and pump (if needed) are you looking for? Do you need to carry anything else as far as equipment?

          I believe alot of the apparatus manufactures have areas of their websites that you can build trucks on line and they will send you a set of specs.

              I too am interested in a tanker, but have a little more $ to spend (not trying to be snobbish)
              We are in the beginning stages of putting together a 2500-3000 gallon, 4 man cab, 1250 pump, blah, blah, blah.

              Found American LaFrance to be very reasonalbe, plus you can build rough on-line.

                Check with Danko (for under $150 and the 4 door cab). We just received our new 4 door tanker, 2100 gallons, total price was around $155K.

                    As long as you don't go nuts, just about any builder should be able to build you a new tanker for $150K. Now if you start getting real heavy on the chassis, adding lots of options, then you won't be able to get what you want for that money.

                    Check everyone. I sell Rosenbauer, I know they can do it. I also know that US Tanker as previously mentioned can, Pierce as was mentioned, probably folks like Simon, Alexis, E-One and ALF (for sure in a program unit, as I recently bid against one.)

                    Your budget is not out of line, in my opinion.

                      Don't know how much pump you want, but take a look at Toyne's new web site (lauched yesterday) at www. toyne.com. > Products > Demos. They're showing a 2000 gallon demo tanker (8542) on a Freighliner M2 single axle chassis. I didn't open them, but the complete specs are there. Looks like it has a small pump.

                      Look at the one under it, too, #8700. Also 2000 gallons, more pump, stainless body, more features. No idea what price range they're in, but 800 phone calls come pretty reasonable...

                      Stay safe out there, everyone goes home!
