Pickup 409 Pictures
Pickup 409, 1984 F-250 Supercab 4x4.
Pickup 409 was reworked in the Spring of 2002.
This was the old radio and controls setup. Wiring was poor and all emergency equipment was controlled by two switches.
We installed a new Havis Shield Console and switching controls, trying to standardize our trucks emergency equipment controls. We added a Kenwood 350 walkie with mobile charger and a Motorola Spectra 800 radio to communicate with Mutual Aid departments. A 12 volt trickle charger was also added to keep the battery charged and to supply current for onboard chargers (flashlights and portable radio).
The pump was also replaced. This was done mainly due to the fact that the old pump, a 1979 Hale, decided to throw bearings all over the truck bed on a call one night! The new pump is a 2002 250 GPM Hale. It is plumbed with 1" recirculation valve, 1" 150' Booster Reel, 1 1/2" 150' Pre-connect, 50' 1" Forestry Line, and 25' 3/4" Garden Hose for refilling backpacks.
