Harrisburg received their new tower truck right before Thanksgiving, it is scheduled to go in service tomorrow morning so I thought I would introduce to the kids and adults that are still children at heart and like fire trucks, plus I didn't know what else to post.
The rig is a 2008 Pierce Arrow XT with a 75 foot aerialscope boom remounted from our old 1989 CF Mack tower. I was spending the morning out doing driver training when I realized that a great place to photograph it would be in front of the old Reily Station 10 now used as our fire museum. The weather was gloomy but it is not my rig so I may not get another chance to photograph it in this spot. The city is also getting a new engine with the same cab that will run out of my firehouse, you can expect to see it soon.
