In keeping with “Every Fire Truck Has A Story”, this rig has an interesting one - when the company bid this unit out, only two vendors came forward including 4-Guys (with whom they had a long standing relationship) who ultimately built this unit. The other apparatus manufacturer told Jarrettsville what they wanted could not be built, however, 4-Guys built exactly what they wanted. Oddly enough, the other builder actually visited Jarrettsville to view the unit just to see how 4-Guys was able to accomplish what they could not!!
