From the "one time only" category, CFD purchased (4) FTI pumpers in 1976. Utilizing the standard "Cincinnati" cabs, 1000gpm pumps and 1000 gallon tanks, these engines were delivered to Engines 4, 6, 11, and 14. They were largely worn out by the time that they were replaced and did not last very long in the extra pool.

Updated apparatus assignments....

The 10 Sutphen Engines have been assigned to: E-3,5,8,11,15,16,27,28,31,& 33
All feature 1500gpm Pumps, 750 Gallon Water Tanks, and a more "city" style paint, trim, and effects package.

The engines replaced by the above will either be disposed of or sent to the spare (extra engine) pool.

The two new Sutphen Tower Ladders (first CFD Towers with the new Sutphen buckets) have been assigned to Ladders 22 & 33, replacing  1991 and 1994 Sutphen Towers respectively. Both of those rigs are going to be extra apparatus.

The four new rescues recently delivered by Central states are suffering from a few "issues" and work is underway to resolve the problems before they are placed in service with Rescues 2, 4, 11 and 16. Rescue 17 received an E-One rescue approximately one year ago.

Finally, CFDs HazMat rig, A Marion 27' body on an HME chassis, is nearing completion and will replace the 1988 GMC/Hesse that currently responds as HazMat 4. Its destination after replacement is unknown.

Sorry I don't have any photos of these for you. Next, I will post an updated CFD apparatus roster- first-line fire apparatus only.

Happy new year to all!

Greetings everyone. Here are some more older CFD aparatus that are either replaced, or are about to be.

1. CFD Ladder-10s 1990 Sutphen 104'aerial demo. It was purchased for the tight quarters of Station 10 in 1992 and, at last report, was serving as Extra-Ladder 5.

2. CFD Ladder-27. Due for replacement later this year, L-27 is a 1996 Sutphen platform, 1500gpm, no tank. This was one of (2), the other being assigned to Ladder-28.

3. Fomer Extra Ladder-1. A 1987 Sutphen Platform. This was one of (2), the other was assigned to Ladder-2. These were part of the "Task-Forces" that lasted about 6-7 years. Consisting of the two engines and one ladder at Station 1 and 2, they were a very unique thing to hear on the radio being dispatched to high-rise fires in the downtown area of Columbus.

CFD Apparatus Update:

The Columbus City Council has now added on two (2) additional American LaFrance tillers to the original two (2) ordered previously. All (4) should be delivered by the end of 2007 and are scheduled for assignment to: Ladders-1,8,27, and 28, however, do not be suprised if there are some adjustments to the assignments at some point down the road.
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: firesafe91 on March 15, 2007, 08:54:36 PM
Anyone know if Columbus has any new engines on order? Engines 1,2,9, 23, 25, and 26 should be the next rigs due for replacement.

Thanks,

Scott
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: BrooklynChris on March 20, 2007, 10:36:05 PM
CFD opens bids for engines on March 29th.  Likely (4) engines each year for the next (4) years. First batch will go to the downtown engines, 1, 2, 3, & 9, with Engine-3's Sutphen being passed along to Engine-25. That would leave (2) 1995 Freightliner/Luvernes as the oldest front-line engines. (E-23 & E-26)  Don't be surprised if that number increases for this year up to 6 or maybe even 8... the 1995s and the 1997 freightliner/Sutphens are very tired and long passed needing replacement.

Post by: lfd12 on December 06, 2007, 01:01:54 PM
Does anyone have any news regarding equipment replacement.   I heard from someone that their is an issue with the tillers?  I also heard that the new engines coming could be Ferrara's?  Anyone have any info?
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: lfd12 on February 08, 2008, 03:01:14 PM
I saw E 12 in a 93 International/Sutphen today at Demorest and Alkire.  They had a "12" duct taped to the door.  Normally the extra's have an "X-##" on them.  I was wondering if their Freghtliner was OOS and they were running the Intl. until they got something new?  Also, I know I posted about this back in December, but if anyone knows about who got the bid for new engines and what's going on with the ladders, please post away.  Thanks in advance.

Hey All,

 Latest talk I've heard is that Ferrara is possibly building then new engines, and poss the new air wagon.  AmericanLaFrance filed for chapter 11, so not sure what's going on with the aerials.
 I also heard the bomb squad is getting a new rig also.  Mifflin twp in Gahanna is also getting a new rescue sometime, I guess it's gonna be huge.
 That's all the info I have from the water cooler discussions.   8)
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: lfd12 on February 10, 2008, 08:44:17 AM
Jim, any word on what type of rescue Mifflin is getting, ie. rescue/engine like they currently run or just a heavy rescue?  I saw the new BS 2 last week on the west side.  Nothing spectacular from the outside, but I'm sure it's state of the art all the way around.  Thanks for the update!
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: lfd12 on August 18, 2008, 09:32:35 AM
Columbus' latest set of new engines can be seen at Ferrara's website.  They are production images, and have the station assignments with them.  Engines 1, 9, 12, 23, 24, 25, and 26 can be seen.  With this new delivery, it appears most of the Freightliner's will be removed from front line service, as well as the old Simon's from station 1.  I also noticed that the graphics have changed slightly on the cab doors.  They all have raised roof cabs and are rescue style bodies.  I'm wondering if the next order will start replacing the Sutphen/International "phonebooth" style trucks.  I thought the recent news story said the division was replacing all of the medics and getting seven more engines on top of the current order by next year. 
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: jim trk 1 on August 18, 2008, 02:41:12 PM
Sure will be nice to get some new rigs. Our fleet sure does need updated. 2 of the ALF tillers have arrived, with 2 more on the way later on. I'm looking forward to getting some pics of the new stuff.
  Maybe we'll save money by not using duct tape all the time.  ;D

Post by: MATT3045 on August 19, 2008, 08:07:34 AM
Columbus isn't going with Sutphen engines? Kind of suprised by that.
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: lfd12 on September 03, 2008, 05:12:44 PM
I forgot one on the delivery list, that's E 2.  So all 4 downtown engines will be almost brand new with the exception of E 3, and the oldest trucks in the rest of the city will be the 1999 batch of International's.  The news had reported that all the medics would be replaced with medium duty units, and several more engines would be ordered in 2009.  One would assume that if the camel's are next to go that Ferrara would get the contract again.  From the pictures on Ferrara's website, the new engines look pretty tough.

The 1980 Sutphens had 4 door cabs while the 1982's had 2 door cabs.  I never asked why they did that.  Cost perhaps?  I think at this time the 1's were still running out of the old 16's house, which is now the Central Ohio FF Museum.  It wasn't very long until they were in their new digs a block away 400 N 4th @ E.

I think that we shot this at the old 9's before they moved over to the new 1's. The 9's house was vacant for awhile until the CFD lost the job of airport fire protection.  At that time, E-25 from the Port Columbus station moved over to the old 9's and it became Station 25.

I assume that the -7 in the serial # is that this is rig #7 in a multiple delivery order.  As you can see, Columbus was an early user of 4 door cabs.

The Sutphen delivery list states that the CFD took delivery of 5 1982 Sutphen pumpers and that they went to E-1, 2, 3, 8, 9.  There was also a Mini Tower in that order that was a 1981 and it went to the 26's.

1 of 5 delivered and one of my all time favorite CFD class of engines.  This was the second group of engines delivered with 4 door cabs after the 1974 Sutphen.  A 4 door change up to other GMC cabs used on Sutphen engines, Allegheny Hose Wagons, and retractoring Seagrave aerials.

This station opened a little after the time I joined the Troy Fire Department.  It is located on the far West side of town, just South of I-70.  There wasn't much out here back then. CFD ran this as an engine, but 12's was a pretty long hike in for their first due ladder, so they had the 65' tower just in case.  Now the 26's has an engine and a truck and the area is really built up.

1 of 3 delivered to the CFD.  The delivery list has these as 1974's, but the DOT on this rig was 1975.  The list also shows this rig as E-27, but that was not its original co., as E-27 had not been organized yet.  The other 2 deliveries had no assigned co. listed.  Another out in the boonies station that is up in the North West and has really boomed & now has a truck company with them.

Taken not too long after the 28's opened.  They were out in the middle of nowhere then.  Now they have an engine and a truck and have a response area that is a s built up as anybody's.
This is a twin to E-22 that's posted above.  My guess is that it was orginally downtown.

The 1984 GMC/Union City heavy rescues (there were six of them) were sold through Sutphen and carried numbers HS-1827 through HS-1832.

According to the list I have, there were four 1968 GMC Sutphen pumpers (on the list as 1969's), HS-615 through HS-618.  Two more are shown as 1970 models, HS-712 and HS-713.  I have no listing for the 1972 GMC/Sutphen pumper that was posted, but the list shows HS-855 being the only delivery to Columbus in 1972.
Title: Re: Columbus, Ohio
Post by: Buckeye 53 on April 11, 2011, 02:05:31 PM
The big problem was that none of those Sutphen engines had any info plates on them.  I'm not sure about those Rescues.  I know they had Union City Tags on them, but pretty sure there were no Sutphen tags.  The 1969 Sutphen/International Tanker that we had did not have any Sutphen info on it either.  The other disadvantage was taking the driver at his word on the year of the truck.  That was always tricky at the end of a year when the truck was delivered in one year and entered service the next.  And, truth be told, some of them just weren't that interested in knowing that kind of info.  I wish that I had been a little better detective back then!  Anyway, thanks for all the info & input.

Until what year or decade did the PBF stop using letters for Truck Companies?

The fully enclosed Sutphen cabs for both the Engines and Tillers for the mid-1970's Columbus apparatus are very similar to the Seagraves of that same period, as well as a few other manufacturers.  If I had to say, my preference for Sutphens would have to be early 1980's to early 1990's.  They are very trustworthy apparatus (they were an original option prior to our purchase of our 2005 Pierce Saber), but I don't seem to be partial to newer models.

According to John Schmidt's book on the PBF, "We have a box working", the Pgh Bureau of Fire switched from letters to numbers identifying truck companies in 1915.

I'm pretty sure that L-12 rig is sitting in a junkyard on US 40 west of West Jefferson, although it looks like a Mack tractor not a Sutphen.  I'll see if I can get a picture of it in the next couple days.

Are the Columbus tillers so heavy that they require tandem axle tractors?  Whats the need here.  Niles, IL has a truck like this as well that I think is a combination Ladder/Heavy Rescue.  Any insight would be appreciated.

My understanding is that the tandem tractors were ordered to provide additional braking ability.

On June 24, 1988 Box 2656 & I shot E-29 which we recorded the same info as E-26. However, the 1st photo has no bucket, but the second one does. I am confused - Maybe Box 2565 can bail me out?
