    The Delta 3 series or the Chieftan Series (except Chieftan is tracked.)
    Read post numbers 19 and 20 and try to catch up.

    it is also known as an AMERTEK. however, this is the first time I have seen one cut so low in the back and with a tandem.. so I am gonna guess it was reworked at some point.

    Should have a pump rating plate on it, and in cab should have serial numbers (chassis numbers) stamped in many of the pieces of body frame..

    If this is one , they suck..lots of problems with them.

    The other thread about this solved the mystery.

    Looking at the pic closely I would venture to say it could be an Oshkosh, Grunmann (or however it's spelled) or an Amertek. Just a few guesses though.....

    Check to see if there is a VIN # and check with your State's DMV and see if they can give you a hit. Check the (3) that I mentioned.

    If you think it is an ARFF vehicle, post it on www.arff.info and maybe the arff crowd may know what it is.

    For some reason, I guess I thought we were helping someone for their own vehicle for the pleasure of having some odd piece of fire apparatus. I didn't realize we were helping out a used car lot sell a used car. grrrrrrrr

    Sounds like we need a commision for our research if he sells it.

    Maybe some good Canadien beer, eh?

    Get a hold of the BLM office in Grand Junction. That is where a bunch of the engine guys for the region are. Someone there may know what it is and it's story. Especially if Dove Creek got it from them, that is most likely where it came out of. If not get a hold of the mechanics at Colorado State Forest Service, they might have an idea, they have had a lot of odd ball units in the past.

    Suprisingly it runs pretty good and it needs two new motors for the hose reels and a foam injection pump and it should be ready to go. The big air compressor and everything else seems to be fully functional. It climbs like a scalded ape and has a pretty short turning radius although with no water or weight it does slide the front axle if you turn to short.

    I think more likely it was the replacement guy from BLM for the one who retired, saw this thing, and wanted to get rid of it quick before it was his responsibility!
