  5. If You need to replace the hose, any fire apparatus supply co. could get it for You. If You are going to pump water through it, mack sure You don't pressurize it too much, otherwise it will burst!
  6. First Mack I drove, was a CF600 fire engine with a 5 spd, and a 300. Thing was fast!!!!! We also had a Mack Pirsch 100 ft. ladder with a 5 spd, but with a 250. Thing was a turd! On my days off from the firehouse, I started driving ready mix and semi dump. We had Valueliners and R600 mixers, with R model tractors, and 1 Superliner. All R models had twin sticks. Now on mixers, We have RD's and Granites. Dumps are CH's and some Rd's.

  8. My cousin Eddie Hodges was a broker for Elmhurst Chicago Stone Co.. As a kid, he had BD model Hendrickson's both diesel and gas jobs back in the 1960's. Then in the 1970's, he had the H models with the 190 Cummis with the 5 and 4 transmissions. They also had the H models with 6x6 conversions, that sat up higher than a normal 6x6. Meyer material, as well as John Aue Trucking, also had Hendrickson mixers. Mohr Redi Mix out of Oak Park still runs a couple of 1960 BD's hauling concrete .My cousin also had a couple of Hendrickson Bd's pulling semi dumps. I learned how to drive truck on the H models
