          I am quite familiar with this truck - it's about 4 miles south of my department. It is not a refurb. It was purchased new from Saulsbury. I don't know what that is on the grille, but to my knowledge, it has no affiliation whatsoever to KME.

          Now I'm curious - I'm gonna hafta run down there and check out the grille for myself. I'll get back to you.

              The "2003 KME" is at least very misleading and at worst just wrong. The truck is clearly a Spartan/Aerialscope, and anything else is barely worth mentioning. Even if KME did the body (looks like a Saulsbury Aluminum job) to call it a 2003 KME is a crime!

                KME used to build on Spartan, but I thought they stopped that before 2002. Definitely looks like a Scope aerial, have to agree with RFD on that. Outriggers give it away for sure. Didn't think Seagrave would build on anything but their own custom chassis. Enquiring minds want to know.

                  Kme Fire Apparatus built a few pumpers & aerials in 2005 , 2006, on Spartan custom chassis. It will cost you a few bucks more for the " Spartan ".

                    Thanks for posting the PAfirefighter website. This is a great site I didn't know about and the extreme machine section is great.

                    Thanks
