Sirens: Federal Q2B, Federal eQ2B, GE Powercall
Engine: Cummins ISX15 w/ Allison 4500 EVS transmission
Pump: Hale, 2000 gpm
Tank Capacity: 300 Gallons

Other miscellaneous items:
Pierce One-Eleven Mirrors
Akron Brass StreamMaster II water monitor (mounted on bumper)
Roof-mounted train horn
Let's get into the pictures.

Front view, with the StreamMaster II and Q siren. The design for the Q is my adaptation of Deston's design.




Tractor-only view.



Rear Tractor-only view. You can see that the fifth wheel is made of the base of the 4x4 turntable.



Outrigger view. There is a cone mounted on each side of the body just behind the outriggers.



Rear view, including the ladder to the tillerman's cab, as well as an externally-mounted hydrant wrench.



The other side rear view, featuring a back board and an LED traffic direction sign.



Straight-on rear view, with an Arrow Stick. In the compartment there is space for more ground ladders as well as a small hosebed.



Officer's side compartments, including various fire extinguishers, saws, and another small hosebed.



Engineer's side compartments part 1. There is the other side of the hosebed, and various hand tools.



Engineer's side compartments part 2, including forcible entry tools, such as Jaws, Hurst tools, rams, jacks and others. In the second compartment there is oil binding agent, cones, and other accident clean-up items. The third and final compartment contains extra SCBA tanks. Mounted behind these compartments is a generator.




View of the ladder board mounts. It took me a while to cook up a solution for ladder boards with the new(ish) City ladder pieces, so here it is! Decals will be put on hopefully sometime later this summer.



Pierce President Jim Johnson, who personally delivered this unit, shakes hands with Captain Lane Spyksma, the captain of this rig, while SRFD Chief Lorenzo looks on.



The crew poses for a picture. From left to right they are: Captain Lane Spyksma, Engineer Camryn Spyksma (based on my sister :D), Tillerman Mack Perez, FF Jack Taber, FF Steve Fitts, FF Dom Corduas, FF Diego Haynes, FF Aaron Copeland, and PFF Jonathan Davies.
Stayed tuned for stories of Quint 1s crew in the future.





---NOTES---
I had a tremendous amount of fun building this. Several months and BrickLink orders later, it is finished! I hope you guys love it. Train horn credit A. Dorsey Jr.
As SRFDs currently only aerial unit, this unit will serve the citizens of Stud Ridge for years to come. Stay tuned for upcoming incidents and rigs throughout the rest of the summer and fall.

As always, please comment, critique and rate!

Quoting Jon D Michael pretty much covered the pump issue- Thanks Mike! For the length- http://www.moc-pages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=355198&id=/user_images/98038/1391829234m_DISPLAY.jpg
That was a rig that inspired me, but regardless I'm not changing it, otherwise I would have to compromise compartment space. But thanks for the suggestion!

Quoting Jimmie Martinez Looks like a Pierce to me. You can see the work was put into this creation.
Thanks, I'm glad it doesn't look like a Sutphen! XD

Quoting Sven J. Beautiful work on this tiller truck :) Especially like the trailer with all the nice details you added :) Keep up your great work my friend.

Quoting Michael Parkinson By the looks of it, your city isn't loaded with oil rigs and other high flammable solutions, so you don't need a pump that size. The article you posted is directed for industrial applications, where flow is what determines the success or failure of the fire department. Perhaps having a specialized rig/trailer would be your best option ;)
Sigh... lol ok, I'll change the pump... :D

Quoting Jon D
Thanks for the feedback. As for the length, I wanted to fit two of the ladder pieces, and I will be keeping it the way it is. As for the pump: http://www.fireapparatusmagazine.com/articles/2015/03/ferrara-builds-6-000-gpm-industrial-fire-apparatus.html Same engine, pump, and tranny. Thanks, Lane

A nice looking rig Lane but theres a few things I'd like to address. First to Scotty's point, while Pierce pump panels can be black, all pump panels start out silver (light grey) but many MFGs offer LineX which covers the panel to protect it from scratches and damages. Now onto the truck, the length is extremely long even for a tiller. I think reevaluating the length would be good, the ladder may contribute to this issue. Next the pump, a 4500 is way way WAY to big for a tiller! In fact pumps that big need to be pulled on trailers to scenes. 4500 is at the higher spectrum of industrial scale almost watercraft size. I'd drop this pump down to 1500 gpm for realism, having it so large would stress the frame and slow the vehicle way down. I'd make it 3 studs wide at the max. The bumper turret is a nice touch but a bit to much with the GPM. 1500 gpm is an ARFF type turret a small 500 gpm is sufficient but having it on a ladder/tiller doesn't seem practical. As a rule of thumb, since I think I see the issue, the pump gpm is different from monitor gpm. When running a pump on a quint the pump generally places 1000 gpm to running water up to the monitor and however much else to hand lines. So 1500 gpm could run both the aerial monitor and the bumper turret comfortably. If you straighten that bit up I think it will look good! It's a nice rig as is, just needs some tweaks. Don't think I'm trying to bash it in any way, I definitely can see the hard work and time put into this.

Keep in mind that pump ratings do not take into account the pressure from hydrants. The rating of a pump is derived from how much the pump can draft. Therefore, pumps with a certain rating (i.e.: 2000 gpm) are usually capable of doubling their pump capacity if supplied by a capable water source, like a fire hydrant. Also, in practical applications, there are very few times in which a pump that size will be used to max capacity.

Quoting Michael Parkinson One more thing, why a 4500 GPM pump? That seems a bit excessive for a roller quint.
Well, there's the bumper monitor (1500 GPM), the aerial monitor (2000 GPM) plus handlines. It was just my reasoning. Sorry for the confusion!

ok i didnt see it before, no its a good size. and for the pump panel, my dad always said pierce ones were black. and i forgot he retired almost 10 years ago, so thats probably changed. good job lane.

Quoting Scotty Jones its gorgeous Lane, but that pump panel is tooooo big. and for a pierce, remember, every pump panel is black, not light grey.
Thanks, the pump panel seems long because the crosslay storage is the same colour, directly behind it. And as far as the black goes three different rigs with silver/grey panels: http://flaglerlive.com/5489/palm-coast-new-fire-truck/ http://www.emergencyrigs.net/viewphoto.asp?PhotoID=5935 http://chicagoareafire.com/blog/tag/pierce/page/15/ (Scroll down for the last one)

Quoting Michael Parkinson Great looking tiller you have here! The only comment I have is to switch the tiller man's cab to the inverted windshield. That way you can nail the Pierce look.
Thanks, but I don't have that piece. I may have to order it from BL!
