Item Description

This 2002 Kovatch Mobile Equipment Airport Fire Apparatus was purchased new by Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority (SARAA) for use at Harrisburg International Airport.

The vehicle is a 4X4 vehicle has independent suspension and is powered by a 500 HP Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine and a Twin-Disc automatic transmission MODEL: TD61-1179; S/N: 3AL219 . The drivetrain only has 3,140 engine hours and a total 8,550 miles on it. Being restricted to the airport our vehicles do not get a lot of mileage on them. The apparatus contains a 1500 gallon fiberglass water tank, a 300-gallon foam tank, and 450 lbs of Purple K dry powder (still on board). The tires are at 75% as are the brake pads. NOTE: the foam tank pipe thru water tank has a leak gradually mixing some foam into the water tank. The Rhino brand low angle turret and Hale fire pump (Model: RME-3) are fully functional. The vehicle includes a hydraulically drive electrical generator powering lighting and supply reel and outlets. 

NOTE: Rear drive axle has a leaking pinion seal affecting the oil level in the differential housing. Driving off lot is not recommended.
