      New E-Ones

      We have a 2005 C2 pumper and a 4x4 C2 pumper on order. We are very happy with the service and reliability.

        Just ask Bel Air, Maryland about their "Saulsbury" Rescue!
        Let me guess, another Pierce Kool-Aid drinker..., talk is cheap and rumors run wild, do yo really know the facts??, what exactly is your version of "Saulsbury's weakness", running in the red maybe???i would however agree that closing the NY plant was a mistake by that administration of E-One, that plant had started to turn things around financially and by then it was too late. Some will say that the quality of the S/S product is better, some just can't stand the fact that E-One bought out Saulsbury and refuse to even look, to bad for them i guess.

          We just took delivery of a new E-One pumper. It is the same body as the rig before it but this one is a Spartan cab. (Gladiator classic)
          We spent a little more to get a metal inside (door panels, dash etc.) and the quality is much better then the e-one. It is obvious that some skill was put into the Spartan. Our rig before this one is just built cheap. As an example the plastic door panels are rivited on with plastic rivits (it looks a lot like the inside of a gas station washroom) They crack, if you need inside the door it has to be drilled out and re rivited. It is just cheap junk.
          The first E-One I worked on was an 85. From my experience that is when e-One stopped making quality equipment. Its dash was metal, so were the door panels and other parts. I don't know if you can spec an E-One with metal on the inside. I do know you can get a Spartan with a plastic inside if you want.

            They may own the comercial Mack line but according to an article in fire apparatus last year KME owns the rights to Macks old fire apparatus line.

                  Is that a fire apparatus or an ice cream truck?

                    don't like the look, but what fool would paint it pink, even if it is just a demo.

                      Please tell me that whoever took this picture had the color setting off on their camera!!! I hope it's not PINK, (or whatever color it is). You really have to question some of the recent E-One marketing lately. The ad with the jet engines on a pumper was interesting, since we are all reading about responding safely and arriving alive. And the engine going up the office building was unique.

                      Pink fire engines for everybody!!!

                          I am thinking of names for this groundbreaking new color:

                          Pepto Pink

                          Tutti Frutti

                          Bubble Gum

                          Any others???

                              Hey Chief, if the new improved E-Wont owned Saulsbury is so good, why dont you give the Bel Air Fire Company a call (Harford County, Maryland Company 3) and ask them about their new and improved E-Wont Saulsbury Experience.

                              Oh, and there are quite a few people that lurk on here that will vouch for the fact that I drink many different flavored kool-aids, and the Appleton Flavor ISNT one of them!
