133 - Where is it from?
« on: June 20, 2005, 02:59:43 PM »
Hey! We currently have a replacement Mets truck while our pumper is being fixed... Its an old International Acco, and has the callsign "133". I can't find any reference to a Mets station number "13"...
Does anyone know where this truck may have originally come from?

Good times

That is the Fleet number, SAMFS swap appliances all the time, they enter the fleet number into the computer and allocate the callsign to it and when you use the MDT it shows up with your appliance number, on the side of the cab should be a card holder, this is where the call sign card goes.

133 is 26 years old this year, spends its life at the SAMFS training centre at Angle Park.

Love the old Rigs :D

Yeah, Sorry, thats what I was talking about... It has 133 in the cardholders and on the roof...

It goes very nicely for a 26yo truck... and what a pump! :-o

Yeah a 3 stage , 750 GPM Darley pump, some of those have had the third stage disabled but don't know which one's. That pump is how your pumper should be, but isn't for reason's I am sure you are well aware of!!

Its a 2 stage pump [Sorry, got it wrong before]....
I *believe* that Stg pumper will be either having a second stage installed, or a new pump fitted while its offline this time... just to get it closer the the original specs... :|

Seagraves... Too big, to square and slow take off! I think a new Dennis Sabre would out perform, out pump and out manevour it any day! I've heard that when the Dennis come of the production line you can leave rubber on the road with all it's torque! I'm sure some will find all the firgures and stats between them, I just want to antagonise a little! :-D

Good one James!!

I don't know if you noticed, but the Dennis looks like a shoebox, even the new one is not much different.

Also, 250 horses vs up to 500 horses in the Seagrave

The only thing about the Seagrave is that its very basic inside, but after all, what is a firetruck, something to pump and carry gear!!]

I would rather a Dennis just to wade into the arguement.... :lol:

By the way, the MFS truck has now gone back to MFS. We don't have our white Pumper back yet, but will be expecting it next week with working valves (But not much else will have changed)
