    Seriously, how on earth could that be considered a fire truck. I know they don't have NFPA standards and all that like we do, but still... I think to be considered a true fire truck (and not a utility/brush/etc.) it should have at least a 300 gal. tank, 200 ft. of attack line (1 3/4 or larger), 500 feet of supply line (4" or wider... I don't consider 3" large enough unless you have dual 3's), 50 feet of ground ladders, 3 extinguishers (dry chem, water can, CO2), two sets of irons, and all the other misc stuff that comes on a truck. Note that's the MINIMUM... over here our engine has 1,000 ft. of 5" supply line, two crosslays of 200' each, a 400' apartment load (200' deuce and a half with a gated wye attached to 200' of 1 3/4), 50' trash line, 200' front bumper line, 1000 gallon tank.

    It's the real deal. A fellow fireman imports mini pickups just like this only with a flatbed to sell to ranchers. They use 'em like an atv. He saw this on the auction and just had to have it. Kind of a novelty item. There is no tank at all, it is just a pumper.

    That's what I thought when I saw it, a mini-pumper.

    Still, though, I would think it is kind of a limited use vehicle.

    Unless it can draft, all I'd use it for is to boost the pressure of a real fire truck.
