Thanks for the info...What I have is all from up north and full paid dept's. I was looking to get a dept with the same size and either part or all Vol..I figured that way there would be less resistance..I am a fan of truck work I think it makes the engines job so much better and I was looking to get the truck out on every run but a one engine job. I want to have the engine pull past the location and have the truck infront to ladder up vertically vent or horizontally vent the structure do the search and open up. We have such great tools here and I want to use them all to make everyones job and life better. Be safe..Thanks again for the tips
