Toronto, Ontario Pearson Airport received this 2012 Pierce Velocity at the same time as the aerial, and has a 1250 IGPM pump, 820 gallon water tank and 30 gallon foam tank.

Newer Pierce PUC space-saving design. This has a lower cab floor, driveline and pump, contributing to easier crew access, lower center of gravity for better handling, lower roofline and extra locker and/or water tank accommodations.

So far this configuration remains a unique Pierce offering.

What a ghastly looking vehicle. Easy access would sum this up better. It's certainly not space saving!

Mike - you can get several sizes and wheelbases, depending on how much stuff you want to cram into it and its cab, and how much water and foam you want to carry.

Pierce still manufacture mostly custom trucks, delivering exactly want the customers believe they need. This example is most certainly not the ugliest looking model - try looking at the Quantum range on their website!

But it just could be the safest and most user-friendly....
