2010 International WorkStar with Pierce bodywork. Inspired by Blackstone VFD Engine 4.
About this creation
Engine 2 is a 2010 International WorkStar with Pierce bodywork. It features a 1250 GPM Hale pump, 600 gallon tank, and 100 gallon Class A foam tank. In the rear compartment there is a Husky 3 Foam System. In the bumper there is a front intake valve and a trash line. In a factory mix-up, a canvas hosebed cover was installed instead of a hard cover. This problem will soon be fixed by Pierce. We were offered this chassis, an early-2010 model, at a reduced price, so we madde the purchase and sent it to Pierce. In a record two days, Pierce finished the bodywork and we received the engine.

Nice rig but wheres the KME? I though that this was gonna be a KME. Happy Holidays
Yes, the original plan was to have the KME by now, but when LDD stopped working (a day before I was going to place the order for the KME and the Kenworth rescue, argh) I knew I had to change my plans. In addition to that, winter is on its way, so I realized I needed more versatile apparatus. The KME is still planned for Engine 4, with Engine 3 being a GMC C4500 mini-pumper. I was looking through Pierce's "New Deliveries" section and found these two pieces of apparatus, which seemed to fit my needs best. Don't worry, I want to see the KME in real bricks too. It's just been delayed.

Nice truck, you should make a hose bed for the truck as well as make it studless, but it looks good, also the front looks a bit to square, you should maybe use Hunter H.s desing, for the cab.-Paulo R.
Yeah, I'm working on making it studless and getting a bigger hosebed. I like the cab design because it's a tradition, it's been my WorkStar chassis since 2007, and I've never had any problems with the WorkStars before, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Turns out the night I built the cab, I had a dream about what I should do with the body, and it just looked awesome! Anyway, when "Pierce" fixes the hosebed, I'll have them fix the compartment doors and give it a new paint job (make it studless). Also, I have other plans for that chassis design (I already had it in mind before I joined MOCpages, but just never put it into action). All in good time, my friend, all in good time.
