Hey, congrats that the Caps won the cup, they sure did have a mission by the looks of it, thought Vegas would have been harder to take down!

Great shots of the action as always, they make for some of the most interesting trucks and are most often so clean. The KW lighting truck is outstanding no doubt, cool colour too! The W900L, very nice!

Jim.

Thanks Jim! After the regular season beating they put on us and G1 I thought we were in for a hell of a fight too, had no idea we'd get our shit together and take it in 5. And I agree on the production trucks, they're always a treat to find.

Wow, that K100 is A+, definitely a treat to catch one, especially working! :o
The W900L is very nice, even the trailer is slicked up. 8)
The fire truck is neat too, the single tires on the rear are interesting, I usually associate that with airport rigs.

Thanks Wreckerman! I agree on the rear tires for the ladder, although I think it's weird moreso because if one blows the truck goes down until they can get a road tech out wherever. Not to mention as heavy as that ladder truck is (moreso because it's a larger ladder with more storage than normal) those tires have to be hella beefy. And I know from experience (if they're like the county to the north that I work for) when they put tires on it it's probably gotta be Michelins, which means 5~600 a tire because they can only ride on the best. But I'd be willing to bet they never have blowouts simply because they get replaced long before they're worn out, and they def. wouldn't put recaps on any piece of apparatus.

So yeah, TL;DR very interesting decision to go with super singles on that.
