Engine 8 is a 1989 Pierce Arrow Pumper equipped with a 1500 GPM Waterous pump, 500 gal. water tank, powered by a Detroit Turbo Diesel. This apparatus is the first used apparatus to be purchased by the LRFA after the Chief found this unit posted for sale by a neighboring fire department. The purchase price on this apparatus in excellent condition was $18k. The commissioners voted to purchase a used apparatus and give it a $2k LRFA fitting paint job rather then purchasing a brand new light-rescue for three times the price as it would have only been a temporary assignment until funds become available in 2015 for R3 to receive a custom built heavy rescue apparatus. LRFA plans to keep this apparatus far into the future as a reserve apparatus or as a first out engine company when R3 receives a proper upgrade. (on a side note, this apparatus was designed and built by me and my reasoning for it was to get some apparatus age diversity in the LRFA as well as have an apparatus that is as old as myself, 1989.)

Wow! That's beautiful. The shaping and detailing are so good that it looks like it could have been built at a much larger scale.

Really nice work, Nathan! It has your usual attention to detail, yet it has a very clean, uncluttered look that is quite appealing.

Another amazing creation from team Nathan. 10/10. You can find excellent deals on used rigs with plenty of service life left on them, If you do your research. A very viable option for many departments in our depressed economy.

Quoting Jon D It's a great rig with excellent details! But could we get some back ground on the unit, like it's service history, why the FD purchased it and what it's purpose is now?
yes lol, I was working on it.
