The COOLest auction item!!

I've got a co-worker who just bid on this:

https://mds.bussvc.wisc.edu/swap/product.asp?mscsID=&auction_ID=16892

That has GOT to be one of the coolest things I've seen. Just think - you could park wherever you wanted, traffic won't be in your way anymore....

I wonder if it's illegal to drive a fire truck if you aren't in a fire
department...

Hey Craig:

>What kind of mileage does it get?


If you even consider that, then the vehicle isn't for you. 🙂

No, but at almost 1,000 gallons per minute it wouldn't take long to fill one. <g>
It only carries 200 gallons on board.

No don't think so. I believe it's just like any other heavy truck and you just need a Commercial Drivers License.

Re: The COOLest auction item!!

As personal property it is just like any other vehicle, and no, it doesn't
require a CDL unless being used in a commercial function. Driving an antique
fire vehicle in parades, etc. requires no special permits or licensing, and
anything over 25 years old qualifies for antique plates. There are many
clubs all over the country that restore and show vehicles (police, militery
and fire)......

The volunteer fire company here has a colapsable pool onboard one of
their tankers. Its so they can dump a load of water into it, let gas
powered pumps drive the hoses, and leave to fill up the tanker again
(since rural areas have no hydrants to speak of)

Oh, I know. I live in the boonies. I was thinking swimming pool when it was asked above.
