New truck for Niles

Niles Truck 2, the 1992 Pierce Lance TDA, has been out of service for several months. The aerial device is not usable and they have been running with ‘Quint 2′ or if need be they have run the tiller as a service truck. They have purchased a used, 1998, Pierce Lance, 105’ rear mount quint that was formerly from Trotwood, OH. The listing for this unit can be viewed HERE. The new Truck 2 is currently at the Niles Public Works being readied for service.

New truck for Niles

Niles Truck 2 (the Pierce TDA) has been out of service for several months. The aerial portion of the unit was deemed to be unsafe. They have been running with Quint 2, the 75′ Pierce quint (X-North Maine) or with the TDA as a service truck only. Niles has been searching for a replacement unit from the available manufacturer demos and by looking at used apparatus from around the country. At one point they had the 2008 E-ONE CR100 truck in town that Oak Lawn had traded in, but that unit didn’t work out. They have recently purchased a used Pierce 105′ rear mount quint from a department in Ohio. This unit is reportedly at the Niles Public Works being prepared for service. When more information about it’s previous owner and photos are available we’ll update the post.
