Truck 4 was placed into service with the Richardson (TX) Fire Department in April, 2017. The rig is built on an E-ONE Quest long cab and chassis and has a flat roof. Cab seating for four is provided along with an EMS cabinet installed on the rear cab wall. A Dometic Blizzard auxiliary HVAC unit is mounted on the cab roof. Both cab and the Sidestacker body are constructed of 3/16” extruded aluminum, and hinged compartment doors are part of the body package. Extra SCBA storage is located adjacent to the rear crew cab doors.
Power is provided by a 500-hp Cummins ISX12 engine and an Allison EVS 4000 five-speed transmission with pushbutton shifter. A Harrison 6-kW hydraulic generator is located in the right side storage area.
The apparatus has a Hale Qmax 2,000-gpm single-stage pump (midship) and a UPF Poly III 500-gallon “T” tank. Crosslays located behind the cab include two 1¾-inch (200 feet each), one two-inch (200 feet) and one 2½-inch (150 feet). The bed carries 1,000 feet of five-inch LDH hose in the upper right rear of the bed.
The aerial is a rear-mount, 100-foot HP model constructed of aluminum with a steel waterway that features an Akron 1,000-gpm electric monitor. Aerial lighting includes Whelen 500 Series TIR6 Super-LED lights (red lenses) at the ladder tip and red Luma-Bar Pathfinder LED strip lighting on both sides of the aerial. The command pedestal for this is mounted on the rear upper left corner of the truck and is accessible by the left rear-mounted staircase. Heavy- duty galvanized outriggers and a galvanized ladder tunnel are standard features. Alco-Lite ground ladders (24-foot two-section, 16- and 14-foot roof ladders, 12-foot attic extension, and 10-foot folding) are stored in the center mounted ladder tunnel. A 14-foot roof ladder is mounted on the left base section of the aerial.
The warning lights include 2 Whelen Mini Freedom 24 inch light bars (Model FNMINI) located on the front corners of the cab and 2 Whelen Mini Freedom 24 inch light bars (Model FT8RRRRF) on the rear cab corners. Whelen M6 Super LED lights adorn the perimeter of the cab and body. Two Whelen Model L 31 beacons and Whelen Model B6LED lights are mounted on the rear corners of the body
Scene lighting is provided by Whelen Pioneer Plus PFP2 LED lights mounted on the brow and above the crew doors.
