      the oldest frontline piece is a 1975 Seagrave 1500 GPM pumper. It is due to be replaced in the latter portions of this year. Although it was in its hay-day long before i came on the dept., the vets say its still the best, even better then the ones we got now, they hate to see it go.

      we have 2 parade units, 1875 wagon hand-pump and a 1883 wagon hand-pump.

        I worked in Gulfport, Miss. from 1992-1997 We ran (2)1963 Mack pumpers as front line apparatus - other than being standard shift- they ran better than most newer rigs.

          Our oldest front line peice is a 1970's Mack CF (referb in 1992 or 93). Nice truck, but a little small. Our oldest is a 1955 Mack Parade piece. To see pictures, go to www.chalfontfireco.com/station_54.htm for photos of both trucks!

            Our oldest piece is a 1973 Chevrolet 1500 gal eliptical tanker. It is actually a converted oil truck. It is really a death trap and shouldn't be in service, but we can't scrape together enough money to buy one to replace it.

              Our oldest front line piece is an 1983 American Lafrance, 1500 GPM pump, 1000 tank, 4 man cab, detroit 6v92 engine. One of my personal favorites!

                Our oldest is a 1969 Ford tanker. It doesn't look like much but runs great. Some argue it's the fastest truck we have but since the speedo don't work, who knows! We still use it because we can't take our other tankers off road. This truck is soon to be replaced by a Ford F-650 based tanker.

                      Our oldest piece is a 1966 Pirsch 1250 gpm. It is currently running as a foam unit but ran as an engine company from 1966 until the early 1990s.

                          Hi over here in Queensland, Australia we currently run a 1977 Acco/International 1810C with a 500gpm Marrs pump. It has been our first turn out rescue pump since 1987, and before that was our second turn out pump. It has an International petrol V8 and an Allison automatic. We do not have a "parade" pump.

                            1930 Mack. Unfortunalty, "Little Miss Mack" is out of service right now. She's so old that she doesent even have one of the Mack dog hood ornaments.

                              Our Engine 512 is a 1968 CF600 Mack. It has a 1000 gmp pump with a 500 gallon booster tank. It presently serves as the 4th due engine or special call for supply. It also makes its yearly appearance at the Central Districts Convention Pump competition. She is on her last leg though. One big breakdown and she will pushed out into a field and shot.
