      • Late to post as well. We finally got a truck. $181000. This will replace a 1978 Ford F-700 converted flat-bed with a front-mount pump. The pump was a worn out Barton American UA-50, 500gpm. Very hard to get parts for. Good luck to everyone whose waiting. We have tried for three years. So don't give up, just keep working for it.

                  • Haha! I finally get to make a post in this thread!!!! And it looks like I'm the first one for this week to post. Just got off the phone with our congressman's office and was awarded a federal share of $171,000 towards the purchase of a new tanker. With our share this brings the total to $180,000 for our new truck.

                    Just some of the details for those who are interested....2000 gallon tank, single axle, single cab, with 1000 gpm PTO pump. Preferably looking at a dryside tanker. Just a few of the highlights!

                    Ok, gonna go run some laps now to burn off some of this excitement. Thanks everyone for all the help along the way. Big thanks go out to Kurt for the hours we spent on the phone working on this project and to Brian for all of his insight and input along the way as well. Thanks again everyone from all of us at Catlin!

                        Your welcome. The next round of award notices is in the Congressional hands at this time. Calls are starting here in Florida already.

                                Congratulations nmfire!! Glad to see some Hoosier funding coming in--$52,000+ for North Manchester. Checked Sen Lugar's press release, that's a huge award for East Columbus too.
