Country (Engine 38) was designed with several tasks in mind:
meet the above objectives, we asked Central States Fire Apparatus to build
it with a 2500 gallon tank with rear 10" dump and side dump
capabilities. It carries a 3000 portable dump tank. The pump is a 1500 GPM Darley that can feed the 1000' of 5" Large Diameter
Hose (LDH), the two 1 1/2" pre-connect attack lines or the 2
1/2" pre-connect with the Vindicator nozzle. There is also an Extenda-Gun top-side that converts to a ground-set monitor
for high water flow situations.
The truck chassis is a Freightliner with a 415 HP Caterpillar and a 10 speed Road Ranger transmission. It has a live front axle and the rear tandems can ALL be locked-in at once. It is a tank.
A truck this big presents its own challenges. It doesn't maneuver as well as most and it requires considerable skill and training just to drive.
