Is your fire apparatus 10 years or older? Does your drive train system have leaks or does the apparatus body showing signs of electrolysis? If your fire truck body is structurally sound, then refurbishment is a definite option for your department instead of buying a brand new apparatus to replace it. As a dealer and manufacturer, Bulldog Fire & Emergency Apparatus has extensive service capabilities for any fire truck refurbishment project you might have!
What to Expect:
- Inspection of the truck/meeting with department to determine the scope of the project
- Written proposal and quotation for customer approval
- Final inspection by our technicians upon arrival for any additional repairs needed beyond the anticipated repairs. Anything additional would be presented to the department for consideration while the truck is at our facility.
Items most commonly addressed during a refurbishment:
- Cab & body refinishing
- Corrosion repair
- Refinishing of compartments
- Power wash chassis and repaint for corrosion protection
- Rim refinishing
- LED lighting conversions and equipment upgrades
Before and After Project Galleries
If you’re looking for a full-service shop in the New England and eastern NY region, you’ve found us!
For our refurbishment service, our skilled technicians will take your older apparatus and recondition/restore it to a like-new working order. Trust our experienced staff members to mechanically check through the engine, transmission, and suspension to confirm everything is working properly and to repair areas that need it. You will also have the opportunity to look into options for improving or enhancing your current apparatus with things like foam systems, LED lighting, and roll-up doors. With all mechanical issues and add-on features taken care of, we apply the finishing touches on the appearance of your apparatus and usually strip it down and repaint it. This can all be done for a fraction of the cost of a new apparatus and will extend your current fire truck’s service life!
