Apparatus Information

  • With under 25,000 miles, this used fire truck has been very well taken care of over its life. There should be plenty of life left to respond to emergency calls in your own fire department with this piece of emergency equipment.

  • Changes in NFPA in 1991 significantly increased fire fighter's safety when operating a fire truck. Buying a used fire apparatus newer than this year will bring those safety features into your firehouse as well. The enclosed cab which was required in 1991 and forward brought fire fighters out of the elements of weather, and into the safety of the fire apparatus cab.

  • With an on-board foam system, your fire fighting will use the water more efficiently. Adding foam to a fire can help reduce the total water needed to extinguish the fire, and reduce the damage that can be caused to property by excess water usage on a fire scene.

  • Waltek was a Canadian truck and fire apparatus manufacturer that specialized in aircraft crash rescue vehicles. The company went out of business in 2003, and its assets were purchased by R.P.M. Tech of Laval, Quebec. R.P.M. Tech manufactures snow removal equipment. When Walter Canada Ltd. went out of business in 1985, shareholder Georges Laporte acquired the remaining assets and established a new company called Waltek Motor Trucks. The name was a combination of Walter and technology. Initially, the company provided parts and service for Walter trucks. In the early 1990s, Waltek built some specialty mining support vehicles. The company then began to offer aircraft crash rescue vehicles. By the early 2000s, the Canadian market for crash trucks became very slim, and the company filed for bankruptcy in 2003. In 2008 R.P.M. Tech acquired Walteks assets and announced plans to offer the complete line of Waltek crash rescue vehicles. As of 2017, no production of these vehicles has been reported.
