The Hamilton Twp rig was on display at FDIC this year.
Other trucks I saw include a new pumper for Indian Hill/Maderia which I've forgot the specs on. Miami Twp (Clermont County) had thier new Spartan/Luverne platform on display, but was sent back to the factory after the truck was overweight BEFORE any equipment was added. Oops! I haven't seen it parked in the station yet.
Miami Township (Clermont County) has received a new Luverne Rescue Pumper, which will be in service at their South Station. Miami Township also has a Luverne Quint on order. This unit has been delayed due to required modifications
Here's more information about the new Luverne Pumper recently put into service by Miami Township (Clermont County). It is built on a Spartan Gladiator chassis with a 10 inch raised roof and roll-up compartment doors. It features a 1500 GPM Waterous pump with a top-mounted pump panel. It carries 500 gallons of water and has a Hypro Foampro 200 system.
On another matter...I checked Luverne's website today and 3 of thr 4 returned CFD pumpers are still listed as available. The fourth returned unit has been sold to the McCook, Ill. Fire Department.
I had a chance to see Miami Township's new Spartan/Luverne Saturday night as it was on display at the Township's "Midsummers at the Meadows" festival. It's really a stunning engine to look at at it seems to be loaded with features. It looks like the truck is set up with two small foam tanks, dual light towers (fold down)on the driver's side, fold down ladder (hydraulic) on the officer's side, 2" receivers (looks like a trailer hitch) mounted on each side to accept a winch. From the Miami Township newsletter the price was $380,000 not including equipment. The truck has not been outfitted yet.
Both Fairfax/ Madison place and Mariemont have ordered new engines. Fairfax bought a demo that was at FDIC last year, and should be here in October. And Mariemont, order a custom, that will arrive sometime next year.
