  1. Unfortunately, no. I was in a bit of a rush because it was going into service this afternoon, so I didn’t look at the details.
  2. Out with the old, In with the new...
  3. LT191's Freightliner/Rosie is still the shop, getting some cabinet rework done by the shop crew. I'll head over and get real shots when it's lettered and ready to go in service. Here's the back end of S197
  4. Here's the other new rig. This was headed out the door this afternoon to go in service. Support 197 - 2018 Freightliner M2/Rosenbauer (S. Dakota) Technical Rescue
  5. I missed catching E194 before it went into service, so I'll have to wait until it's back at the shop for PM work. In the meantime, here is Ladder 191's new rig. It won't be in service for a couple of weeks. The crews are doing training on it this week. 2018 Rosenbauer (Minnesota) Commander 100' MMT.
  6. That explains why El Mirage has been running the Ferrara rescue pumper as E-121
  7. New Commander for E-191 should be ordered this Summer for expected 2019 delivery. E-191’s Spartan/Rosenbauer should then go to E-196, replacing the last non-Rosenbauer pumper in Peoria (2006 ALF Eagle).
  8. The new Commander pumper is going to E-194. E-191’s is the newest Spartan/Rosie and isn’t the busiest company, so it’ll go later. E-194 won’t be in service for a few weeks. New Commander for L-191 is in town at the dealer. Won’t be delivered for about a week. LT-191 and S-197 new rigs are almost done at the South Dakota plant. Final inspection in a couple of weeks.
  9. Yes, its a municipal fire department now. No relationship with Rural/Metro any longer.
  10. Sure. I did confirm that both rigs will be walk-around, both on FL M2-106 chassis.
  11. From what I know, they're both going on Freightliner chassis. The LT will be 4d, TRT will be 2d. The only thing I don't know is whether the TRT will be walk-in like S197, or walk around like the current LT's.
  12. The only in service Peoria rig I didn't yet have. LA-192 (new) 2016 Ford F-350
  13. Peoria has 9 Rosie's currently (2010 (x2), 11, 12, 13, 14, 16(x3)), with another pumper, a MMT, LT and a Tech Rescue under construction. I'm just not hearing anything bad... (dammit, I violated my own rule about not getting caught in a Manu. topic)
  14. Just my observations and certain inside information. I try to avoid "this manufacturer, that manufacturer" debates, it's not why I participate in these forums.
  15. I think it's lots of hard City miles (and in the case of 195, long runs into the far north). The 2010/11 era Spartan/Rosenbauer rigs formerly at 192 and 195 have something like 200k on them... In fact, all 3 went straight to reserve because the 2005 ALF at 196 and the 2007 ALF at 197 had less miles and were actually in somewhat better condition.
