1984 Mack CF/Emergency One Pumper
This is a 1984 Mack CF/Emergency One pumper. It has a 1250 gpm Hale pump and a 500 gallon booster tank.
About this creation
A lot of history is reflected in this truck. The most obvious is the color. In the 1970ís someone came up with the crazy idea that fire apparatus should not be red and should be brightly colored for enhanced visibility. Yellow, lime and other colors crept into firehouses across America. This truck sports a relatively modest yellow.

Mack Trucks was one of the leading names in fire apparatus for most of the 20th Century. The Mack CF cab forward chassis was one of Mackís most popular models. A total of 3849 units of the versatile CF were built. It was built between 1967 and 1984 as a complete unit. From 1984 until 1990 only the chassis was offered to other manufacturers who continued to build on the CF chassis. One of these manufacturers was E-One.

Founded in 1974 in Ocala, Florida, as Emergency One, the firm soon changed its name to E-One. It quickly became a dominant force in the American fire apparatus market. E-One pioneered the use of aluminum in fire apparatus. Aluminum is resistant to corrosion and will not rust like steel. Aluminum also is lighter than steel.

E-One has sold more than 23,000 vehicles. Its rise, and the rise of other manufacturers such as Pierce, took a heavy toll on Mack and other industry leaders such as American LaFrance, Seagrave, Pirsch and Ward LaFrance.

I love this creation :) and the yellow is very different to look at as where i am from, yellow usually means, airport fire trucks and red is normal fire pumps. and especially the fact it is a 1984 model and I was born near the end of 1984.

Amazing. The truck looks great. Details are all there and I can see the paint scheme being used back then. Thanks for sharing.

Your model of the CF is great. The department I run with had a Mack CF right up until we got out 1998 KME. The CF was a 79 and before that we had two Mack C's. What is funny is one was red and the other was white and they were refered that way to the guys in the deparment. One Mack C was sold when the 1979 CF was purchased and the other when the 1984 Pierce was purchased. But I will say the Mack C & Mack CF sure are my favorite Mack's of all time. Great Job!!!!!

Quoting James Keatley amazing as usual, its great it see something from the 80's in the museum, i also like the lighting on this one. Here in the UK they tried the random colurs aswell in the late 70's early 80's, our most common one was white, and some yellows cropped up. they never really tried it again until the mid 90's when they deiced it was cheaper to paint them white.
I like white as an alternative to red. I have the white Mack B in the Museum as well as a number of white rigs on my Brickshelf account.

I love yellow trucks, and this one is great! I remember when yellow trucks started to appear here in So Cal. Your Mack design is so easily identifiable and iconic. Great work. Regards, Eric.
