    The last two aren't legal since 1986 or 1987 according to NFPA 1500 I believe. So if those depts buy new trucks, they'll be closed cabs :nod:

    Thats Hopkins Engine 2 currently for sale. I live about 4 miles from the station. That cab is very common infact at one time the majority of the Minneapolis metro area was running L9000 crew cabs with General Safety body's like that.

    I have a bunch of pictures I'll try and grab some later on this weekend.

    That sort of setup is kinda like that on the water trucks for dust control.

    We have a IH 4700 (I think) and an old M35A that have remote controlled nozzles on the front. You can with one person lay down nice wet line on a grass fire. Pump and roll.
