Engine 5, "Junkyard Dogs"
About this creation


































Engine 5 is a 1999 Pierce Lance II Industrial Rescue Engine. Engine 5 features a wide array of equipment for fighting fires in White Ridge's industrial areas. E-5 features a 4000 GPM Hale pump and an industrial monitor which will flow the full 4000 GPM. E-5 features a 500 Gallon water tank, 250 Gallons of Class A foam, and 250 Gallons of Class B foam. E-5 also features extrication tools, EMS equipment, and portable monitors. This engine was chosen mainly because of its Pierce Lance II 8-man cab, 4000 GPM pump, and foam capabilities. E-5 responds from Station 7 in the center of the Industrial Park. The rig has no hosebed, and therefore relies on additional trucks until a hose wagon is purchased. The nickname comes from the area it serves, which includes factories, scrapyards, and fuel storage and transfer stations. It also protects a major rail line.

**NOTES**
This one was down to the wire. It's also one of my favorites. I had to build it because I drew it. No, it's not a perfect replica of the drawing, but I am satisfied with the outcome. I think it looks a bit like something Zak Overmyer would build. The drawing can be viewed here.

Quoting Christian Collins Amazing work overall James,it looks really great, but I think you need a hosebed for at least some 5 inch supply hose to use for the monitor. The rear compartment should be taller too.
So, I took your advice. E-5 now has a hosebed for 2,000 feet of 5" supply line for the 4,000 GPM monitor and the portable monitor.

It's a nice rig, I'll give you that. But I agree that it should be more like 3000gpm, and a bigger tank capacity. But I also think that an industrial rig without ANY hose other than pre-connects is a bit off. It should at the least have some 2.5 inch foam attack lines, and some kind of supply hose to hook into supplies.

I love it. There are a few technical specs I must knit pick, however. I did not know there could be a 4000GPM pump on a rig of this size. Maybe bump it down to 3000? That would have to be a pretty big motor to power a 4000GPM pump. The Preconnects in the pump, they should go all the way through. And with no hosebed (Which I must say is unique), you could fit alot more water/foam, in there. Anywhere from 500 to 750 of each? I love the deck gun and the board on the side of the truck. I would recommend a taller compartment on the rear. Nonetheless, this is a beast of a truck!

Great love it my only thing is that the entire rig SCREAMS!!!detail except the rear. Now that is my opinion. And please post truck 2 soon.
