A Few Customer Testimonials

  • We have been using the hell out of that truck, everything has been working great and it comes in handy. We are very glad we bought it, keep building a great product!!

  • Just wanted to thank you and your crew for a truck that is perfect for our dept. Your/our truck is the first one out of the station on every call. House fires to garbage cans fires, from mva's to cows on the highway its running on every call. Our neighboring depts have called for mutual aid and have asked for the minuteman, and we are glad to bring it. One dept. that is auto-aided for structure fire responded one night and commented that when they turned on the highway 6 miles away that they could see the flames from there. We got into the house and let the minuteman eat and by the time they got there the fire was nothing but some heat and smoke. They thought we were going to be there all night. The CAFS system is the best thing that has happened to this dept for a long time. Again thanks for a truck that we are very proud of.

  • Being 58 years old and having been a volunteer for 22+ years I totally agree with you on the issue of being able to ride ON the truck rather than walking along the side or behind. I absolutely hate driving a squad at a grass fire with a fellow firefighter walking somewhere beside my truck- not knowing exactly where he is at all times and fearing that I might run over him. I also agree with the fast moving grass fire being uncontrollable with the walk along method. Good luck in your effort to change the "good old ways" of fighting wildland fires and hopefully we can move on to the 21st Century.

  • Over the last couple of years we have shown the "Attack 1" you built for us to lots of Emergency Responders and other folks. They are always amazed at the different kinds of missions it is capable of and quality of workmanship. The apparatus has really made a difference in what we can provide to our patrons.

  • ...the unit is working really well. It is the work horse of the department, using it for all medical/vehicle accident/vegetation fire emergencies. All the personnel loves the unit.

  • Saturday afternoon the truck made its first run to a trailer and pickup truck that was hauling straw that caught fire which also caught 2 fields on fire. The neighboring department called us and the truck performed absolutely great! It is finally nice to have a brush/grass truck that works and can kick butt! It got all dirty and muddy the first time, its first run initiation . The guys that worked the truck were very impressed. Just wanted to share.

  • Please tell Scott and everyone that worked on our trucks that they did an extremely great job. The trucks were received by the firefighters like kids with new toys at Christmas!!!! We have already used Brush 2 on a grass fire yesterday evening and it performed as expected (GREAT),  "The workmanship and fine details that went into each unit was above and beyond". Again pass the word on to everyone and look forward to working with Blanchat in the future.
