Truck Company 81 (Truck 81) is the secondary fire truck assigned to Firehouse 51. The original rig is a 1996 Seagrave Marauder It is equipped with a 100' rear-mount ladder, space for other equipment and seating for up to eight firefighters. The truck is staffed by 4-5 firefighters
In Season 3, Just Drive the Truck, the rig is "supposedly" written off in the collision with Truck 66 and the guys get a "new rig". They actually got an older version of the CFDs ladder truck.
In S08E13, Truck 81 received a new apparatus. The replacement rig to the 1996 Seagrave is a used 1990 Spartan Gladiator from the La Grange Park (IL) Fire Department. The "new" rig is configured as a 'quint' (pumper/aerial combination) and is equipped with a 1250 gallon-per-minute (GPM) pump, 200-gallon water tank, and a 110-foot aerial ladder. It was repainted into the traditional CFD paint scheme for the show.
