Show your work truck
If you drive a truck for work post a picture of it.
Heres my 2009 Chevrolet 6500 series box truck
She has power steering, air brakes, power windows & locks, cruise, tilt steering, full gauge option, leather air ride seats with fold up arm rests on both sides, 6 disc CD player, and GPS.
Motivation is a Duramax engine wth an Allison 6 spd.
The rear box is lined with extruded aluminium and 3 wall mounted tie down tracks around the perimiter at 1', 3, and 6' high for cargo security.
The front of the box has a stainless steel work bench from side to side with 110 and 220 electrical outlets and compressed air connections, storage bins overhead, and a removable 5' tall Matco roll-a-way tool box.
Under the floor we mounted a 25KW generator to run test equipment and a 3 stage Ingersol-Rand compressor capable of 3000 psi air.
The truck was designed as a delivery vehicle and portable repair facility for hospital installed equipment.
Unfortunately I cant post pictures of the interior.

This is a truck I saw for sale while at work, I wouldnt mind having it for a work truck but with a $85k price tag I dont think I'll get it soon.
The truck was built for a Ski Lodge in Colorado, it's 4wd, has Road Armor front and rear bumpers, and 6 DVD viewing screens. Dont know much other than that.

Here are some of mine.
99 Luverne Rescue
04 Crimson Engine
90 Pierce Engine
Our '79 Snorkel won't fit in the station - it's at the public works building. We are expecting it's replacement in Sept. - A Smeal 100' platform. A new station would be nice...

I like the Pierce trucks, my uncle used to collect old fire trucks and had about 4 or 5 Pierces dating quite a ways back, I think some were from the 40's.
I was drooling over the late 70's Brush Truck Steve had had listed on here for sale on E-bay a few months ago.

Yeah, the ol' Pierce is pretty cool. He gets right down the road; sounds like a fire truck, feels like a fire truck... We had it painted about four years ago, and I took it out to the body shop, completely empty - that big Detroit sure gets the job done!!
I don't remember seeing the one Steve listed. We had a "Pierce" mini-pumper for a long time, which was a 79/80 GMC 1 1/4t with a utility box. Lots of stories with that rig. One of the FF/farmers bought it and put a flat bed on it. It's still kickin'.

Unfortunately/Fortunately, I don't have a work truck. I can post pictures of the desk I drive and my office that looks like I had a run-in with the mob though. I'll have to take them tommorow when I go into the office.Christopher

I happen to work around a building with a couple dozen Hil-Rom and other brand beds and medical equipment of various sorts. Very fine equipment. I think we may have a couple of Hil-Rom beds kicking around from when they didn't have any electronics or hydraulics on them. I figured the genset was for testing equipment, I just couldn't imagine any medical equipment or any combination of equipment that could possibly need that voltage or that much load. I'll shoot you a PM...

Cableguy, did they swap you out to the bucket truck, or do you now run both trucks depending on what your task for the day is?
