The vehicle, the body of which is based on the actual firefighting pumpers manufactured by Seagrave Fire Apparatus in the 1930s, possesses all the characteristics of a full-scale monster truck. Specifications include a 3.0 V6 engine, rear steering, Knight Stalker nitrogen shocks, a dual chain drive and 35" Super Swamper tires. Engineer Steve Combs of KS Enterprises, Inc. who initially developed the nitrogen charged shock, was instrumental as a consultant in the suspension setup. Steve currently calibrates and makes shocks for such major monster trucks as Grave Digger.
