How did the frame get twisted? What sort of warranty does ALF have with philly? Correct me if im wrong but didnt FDNY go with ferrara because they were given bumper to bumper warranties? Im not saying philly should go with that, i was just wondering. God bless the PFD. Stay safe all.
NYC has a 5-year bumper to bumper requirement in their bid specs. Seagrave was actually cheaper in the end, but had over 20 exceptions to the bid, mostly surrounding the warranty, which has all but cleaned Seagrave's clock the last 10 years. FFA was the bidder that came closest to the spec for the rearmounts, therefore was awarded the contract. Seagrave did not bid on the rescues.
Recently, an add-on contract was awarded to FFA for 13 more rearmounts for approximately $13 million, making the rearmounts one million bucks each- believed to be the total cost including the warranty for 5 years.
