    Does anyone know anything about FWD brand trucks? Is the company still in business?

    If I'm not mistaken, Seagrave firetrucks is a division of or a spin off from FWD, I think they're in Wisconsin somewhere........

    I belive that FWD is no longer made, I think that it was part of Seagrave at some point.

    They are not related to oshkosh. Last I looked FWD is making an airport snowblower truck again.

    Seagraves owns them

    Seagraves now owns them and they are just starting to release airport plows. I have an rb44 and it's a pretty nice truck but any FWD manufactured parts can be tough to find. The good news is that a well cared for truck seldom needs parts.
