Former Hoffman Estates tower ladder for sale

This from Danny Nelms:

I stumbled across Hoffman Estates’ 1999 Pierce tower ladder for sale on Facebook Marketplace in Marengo, Ohio

FULLY FUNCTIONAL 99 Pierce Dash ladder truck with bucket, monitor and fog assembly. Truck was recently taken out of service. Low miles/hours and extremely well maintained. -Series 60 Detroit Diesel 500hp -1500gpm Waterous pump with waterways and 400gal poly tank -10kw Martin Marine generator w/240v electric cord reel and box. -13,900 miles -2300 hours -Dual compression brake and transmission retarder -Full LED lights -Q2 siren with internal siren brake and squeal/chirp box -Dual cab AC units Way, way WAY too much to list or picture for this vehicle, but it is an excellent condition and has been well taken care of. Every system functions properly, and extras as well. YES, this is a REAL fire truck, WE own it, and YES you can come see it, climb on it, HUG it(I do) or whatever you want. Serious inquiries can request more pictures or schedule a time to come inspect “Large Marge,” as we have named her, at their convenience. We are located in Marengo Ohio approximately 4 MI off of 71.
