The new Mack is called the "Granite MHD" (Medium Heavy Duty). It will be equipped with a Cummins enginenappc said:Mack recently announced that they are producing "medium" duty Granite chassis. Now, if they would just offer a crewcab option.
Chicopee's Mack is a "Junior" model a lighter duty companion to the heavier "Senior" chassis. According toBox 2565 said:Chicopee, Massachusetts has this early (1915 or so) Mack chassis with a hose body by some unknown builder. There is what appears to be a name plate on the hose basket but unfortunately it isn't readable.
You're correct, Startwater. I served 23 years as an aircraft maintenance crew chief and thus spent many hours at the other end of that Mack's hose! I believe it was designated the R-11 refueler and I don't ever recall them used as anything but aircraft refuelers. There were other types of trucks for refueling other things. And I believe even the Civil Engineering folks used different vehicles for their water needs.START WATER said:The ex military refuler was used to refuel aircarft and never used to the best of my knowledge to fight fires or used in resupply
It does have a pump and i have seen they with cross lays over top the pump so I assume some how they rigged up some piping .
I have found in my many yeqrs of firefighting etc ,when you start making something as big as you can it becomes a night mare . A vol co near me cut the frame on a cf mack and extended it to be a heavy rescue .
the usaf built the p15 and thern found out they don't fit in any fire station , so the had to build a extension to house them and they were still to ,short on height , there goes the idea of one blue print for everyone out the door . just my three cents (I got paid yesterday )lololololo always open for emails firstname.lastname@example.org
