51,000 GVW Single Axle...


Recommended Posts

Had to pick up a Fire Truck the other day for a brake problem. It always amazes me how heavy these trucks can get...

This truck handles weight like a dream....the counter weight keeps the steer axle firmly on the ground...

Found it to be the Slack Adjuster Pins seized in the yoke and wasn't letting the brake to completely release. A quick inspection, repair and we delivered it back to their facility.

Yes. fire trucks suck and are heavy. I tow some 100' aerial trucks that are 77,000 lbs and front axle is a mile back and garbage all over the frame.

Yea we have one at the shop now, an Ariel. I looked under it to see about towing it...not too friendly...
