The Type 5 Engine has many new features never found on any Sixby Fire apparatus, or many other people's apparatus for that matter. It is our first apparatus to feature the new gray elements provided to us by a third party instead of our usual supplier. This apparatus also features our first custom striping job and a longer booster hose. The booster hose was made by our primary parts supplier, however, it was also obtained by a third party with the nozzle being added by us. Some other firsts include in cab storage for two firefighter helmets. Firefighters can enter the cab with other headgear on, caps or wildland helmets, and swap them out with the firefighters helmets while enroute to the call. Their cap or wildland helmet can be stored where the firefighters helmets were, without interefering with the wearing of the firefighter helmets. Another first is a prototypical water tank size, that is, the water tank is built from solid bricks instead of the compartments going through it, which often is done to increase equipment carrying capacity. The exhaust stack is another first for Sixby Fire, as is the carrying of a jack and a spare tire. Very few apparatus carry their own spare tires or a jack, however, since the Type 5 Engine often operates off road, it's a necessity.

The Type 5 Engine is four wheel drive and can pump and roll. The booster line can be operated by the minifigs while inside the cab of the apparatus, eliminating the need for minifigs to walk alongside or ride on the apparatus, which is the cause of many injuries. It also has a diesel engine and dual fuel tanks for long mutual aid responses or to operate for long periods of time without support. The Type 5 Engine makes an ideal brush apparatus for big city fire departments or as a regular engine company for rural departments.

The Type 5 Engine has been in the research and development stages since late 2006 and we are now proud to offer it to you!
