Mechanical Problems Plague S.C. County’s Fire Trucks

February 3, 2017

Mechanical problems are forcing the Horry County (S.C.) Fire Rescue to keep more than $2 million worth of new KME fire trucks off the streets, WBTW reported.

The four trucks out of service were delivered in late 2015. Technicians saw problems just weeks after delivery, and they logged almost 800 hours in a one-year period diagnosing and fixing the vehicles. The issues are covered under warranty.

    Hi
    I would be very interested in knowing what the top 10 main Mechanical problems were
    As some if not 90% of the faults should have been picked up either in the inspection/testing phase or in the commissioning
    stage
    Was the right homework done before the sign off?
