2007 Smeal Rescue Pumper
This is a 2007 Smeal Rescue Pumper built on a Spartan Gladiator Classic Chassis with a 12 inch raised roof. It is powered by a Cummins 425 HP engine with an Allison 3000EVS Transmission. It has a 1500 gpm Hale pump and a 500 gallon water tank.
About this creation
In 1955, Donald Smeal opened his repair shop in Snyder, Nebraska, his home town, and named his new business Smeal Implement Company. In 1963, Snyder Rural Fire Board asked Don to fix a leak in the tank of its fire truck. The tank was beyond repair. Smeal was a volunteer firefighter and had another idea in mind; he built them a new truck. Soon other communities were requesting that Smeal build fire apparatus for them.
From this humble beginning Smeal Fire Apparatus Co. was born. Today, Smeal has dealers throughout the United States and Canada and offers a full line of firefighting apparatus including aerial ladder and platforms as well as pumpers and tankers. Smeal manufactures its own aerial devices and its own Sirius custom cab forward chassis. However, many Smeal trucks are built with Spartan or HME cabs and chassis.

Don Smeal died in 2004 but the company is still family owned and operated by the third generation of the Smeal family in their modern 200,000 square foot plant in Snyder, Nebraska. BFD552@gmail.com.

Wow this is an eye opener! Very nice rig. Its always nice to see what each different rig has to show for wether its the chassis and body design or cabit space and tool storage etc... Who wouLd have thought one can design a rig with Lego and make it look realistic...thank you for sharing another top shelf creation!

Quoting Paulo Rodriguez Very nice, are those cut parts on the rear wheel shaft under the middle compartment? I also like the history lesson, I always add some on my WWII Mocs but never in my fire ones, something I should think about, and sure wish school was this interesting, its great learning about something you like, as always great job.-Paulo R.

I 100% agree with Paulo. LMF in my opinion it is not the Great trucks that make your trucks a 100% success. Its the History Lesson that goes along with it. I mean with out this I would have never known that Smeal Would have been started out of a garage. I also like the trucks too dont get me wrong. But I like the history lession 100%
