LITTLE BIG GUYS

In Union County, Mountainside Brush 4 is a 1986 Chevrolet 4x4 with TruckCraft Body. It formerly served with the New Jersey Forest Fire Service and is still called on by them for mutual aid. The original body was in rough condition when they first received it, so the current body was installed. Other than that the design is original. It has a 250-GPM pump, 175-gallon water tank, ¾-inch forestry reel, ¾-inch pre-connect, Warn 2 ½-ton front winch, chainsaw, hand tools, shovel, fire rake, leaf blower, hose packs, hand fire extinguisher and bag of PPE, and other equipment for fighting forest fires.
