This 1971 Mack CF611 pumper has a 1000 gpm pump and a 500 gallon tank. It is similar to 40 such units delivered to FDNY that year.
About this creation
Mack Trucks was active in the fire apparatus industry from 1901 to 1990. Founded in Brooklyn, New York, in 1901, in 1905 the five Mack brothers moved their operations to Allentown, Pennsylvania.
The Mack CF was built between 1967 and 1984 as a complete unit and then until 1990 as a chassis only. Other manufacturers, such as Ward 79 and E-One, continued to build on the CF chassis until 1990. A total of 3849 units of the versatile CF were built. These included pumpers, rescues, aerials, tillers and towers.
The CF was spacious, reliable and powerful. Power steering and air brakes always were standard. After 1973 all units were diesel powered. BFD552@Gmail.com.
This is a EXCELLENT Rig! I love old CF's. My dads company had I think 5-6 CF's in the past day. Our first apparatus was a Seagrave Pumper Truck, then we got a old Mack Pumper (open cab), then we got I think 2 more of them, then we got a Box Truck for a Rescue, then we got the first CF, then we got a CF/Baker 75' Aerialscope, Then a Ford Rescue (I beleive it was on a F-150 Chassis with walk-in body), then we got ride of the 2 old open cabs with 2 more CF's, then got the 1972 Mack MC Heavy-Rescue, then we got the 2nd Mack CF/Baker Aerialscope in I htink 1990, then we started getting rid of all the CF's and replaced them with Engine 1 which is a 1997 Sutphen Shield Series Engine, and Engine 2 which is a 1995 Sutphen Shield Series Engine, then in 2007 we got rid of the old CF/Baker tower and replaced it with a 2008 Sutphen SP95, then got rid of the last CF (Good ol' Engine 65, the first truck i ever rode in) and replaced it with a 2008 Ford F-350 Squad, then last year we got retired the old Mack MC Heavy Rescue with a 2009 Sutphen Monarch Rescue-Pumper. The MC is now the Whitehall Police Department Mobile Command which is stored at station 1 with Engine 2 (my dads engine) and the squad (which sits out front). Weird how the company's been around for, what, like 75 years and I know all the history of the company :-) -Lee
