[MUSIC] Welcome to the E-ONE booth at the FDIC 2011. I'm standing in front of our flagship launch product. This is the, eMAX. This is a truck that give you maximum maneuverability with a short wheel space. Maximum storage capacity. Maximum accessibility with greater economics that's on the truck from pumping performance standpoint. Maximum pumping performance. The way that this truck came around for us today was after very thorough research through the market. We talked to many fire departments all over the country. And we ask them what they liked about whichever manufacturers apparatus they had. The things and the features that they liked, the things that they didn't like. The job that they do today, you know, less than eight percent of, are runs today are actually for fires and most is around rescue. And and medical requirements. And so we say what is it that works and what doesn't work? We took all that information and we came up with the E-Max. I really what we, we learn from this is the rescue capability drives maximum compartation requirements. When you do a medical rescue, medical and rescue maneuverability is a big issue getting in some of the locations, so shorter wheel space. Wheel base requirements. A lot of tool requirements to be carried. So the extra compartmentation. And then the last thing was the severe duty interior. so what we've got here today is the eMAX from E-ONE. And you can see inside of the cab here. We've got a tall severe duty interior. Zolatone coated aluminum all the way throughout. The the polyurethane material that's used here actually was better than diamond plate. This is the same material that Disney used on the floors of their rides. So we know that this works. We're sitting in here with a stainless steel interior door linings. And we've got the same front and back for medical cabinets. We've got. The side access from the outside as well as interior access sitting on medical cabinets. But all of these things that we do are on a custom configuration. So any seating position cabinet requirement any of those things you need to do we can make that happen. We'll the trick here is for us is shrinking the space but it's taken up by the pump panel. So we have a 1500 gallon a minute pump. The resides, it's located and locked onto the to the frame rails. It's got custom cast manner folding to bring you in it allows us to have an ergonomic height for the preconnects. They're not too low, they're not too high. There's no cutouts in the cab to bash your shoulders on that we've seen in other places. We've also got very low cross lays for the speed lays so you can get out your hand lines very easy, connection for a car fires, et cetera. The control panel here. Very simple layout, nice and compressed. The whole thing's behind a closed door, so we keep it clean and keep it available. And that releases a tremendous amount of storage space. So you can see here the amount of compartmentation. We can go up to 538 cubic feet of storage. I'd say 178 inch wheel base on this version. We can go down to 162 inch wheel base. And we can make this thing as long as you'd like it to be to extend that. Flexible tool board applications. Slide out tool boards. Tilt lock trays. Major storage that reside in the back. Two ladder internal storage. We've got a relatively low hose bed height. But if 8% of your runs or less are for fire the other features in the truck are actually what's gonna be used 90, 92% of the time, 93% of the time. And so a slightly higher hose bed than in the lower configuration. Is actually the compromise that we learn, many departments are prepared to make to get the other features that reside within the vehicle. As we follow around the other side here you can see, the the max theme of extra compartation continues to be here. Cuff the cuff and storage up on the roof there is enormous. And allows you for those larger rescue tools or long handle tools that are used on a less frequent basis to be included. As we roll through here again, you can see preconnects on the other side again with a low storage all the way through to the medical compartments that match on both sides of this particular truck. Here the trucks we are featuring here today. We got a 137 foot ladder, it's the tallest ladder in North America. 750 pound tip load, can flow 1250 gallons of water. That go out of this particular vehicle. Again custom configurations. The top box on this is the frame rails very low center of gravity that allows you to do a cross [INAUDIBLE] outriggers. The reach that you can get from this really increases your rescue capability. That is unmatched by anybody else in the market. The last truck we've got here is a featured of the show, is a [UNKNOWN] Custom Truck, was done for West Metro Minnesota. They actually ordered four of these from us, plus a heavy rescue. This is the first truck off the line. It's on our Quest chassis. The Quest gives you increased visibility. You can see a person full floor to height only twelve feet in front of the in front of the cab. So it's the best visibility that resides on the marketplace. This thing's absolutely loaded with a complete amount of LED lights. We've got two cameras on the front. Night vision. We've got caps system. 1500 gallon a minute pump. It's a top mountain close with a full electronic, pump panel that resides inside for those Minnesota conditions. Everyone of the cabinets is aluminum peg board lined so all of your tools can be locked down with complete security. This is a true custom vehicle. And that's really what we've got on the main vehicles here for the show. We hope you guys came and visited with us, we've had tremendous traffic, that we continue to enjoy. We got premium quality, in the vehicles that we produce. And the last six months, in all of our final deliveries, with final inspection with fire departments, we've 60 percent of the vehicles at zero gigs at final inspection, which I believe is a match by anybody else in the industry today. And we've averaged 0.8 of 1 gig across all deliveries. So our ongoing focus over the last several years in getting the configuration of the truck right, we build what you want us to build, we build it on time, we build it to the best possible quality, is starting to pay off. And so we'd like to thank all of our customers. We'd like to invite anybody who's not enjoyed the E-One experience to come and join us. And we hope you had a great show, and you're gonna have a safe and very successful 2011. [MUSIC]
