Ground based monitors

Guys,

If I do any, would you rather have them folded for storage or have the option of having them open???

Thanks!!!

Matt,
Not sure what you mean by "ground based". As the old saying "A picture paints a thousand words", can you post a photo(s) of what you mean? Thanks!

Assume he means a portable monitor. Something like this maybe?

Depending on the style, yes, I could see a use for one deployed. Some of these monitors have a detachable top / nozzle that can be used mounted to the engine as a deck gun, or with their folding base for ground use. Others are always used on their base and are basically just deployed on top of the engine for use as a deck gun.

One of these Blitzfire monitors would be cool too. I've seen them carried in the hosebed of an engine attached to a hose like a nozzle for quick deployment. Also seen them secured on small pumpers for use as a deckgun. I wouldn't think it would be that hard to do the legs separate so they could be positioned open or closed allowing options for mounting?

Aaron,
I second the vote for the Blitzfire nozzle! My hometown has one on their 2000 ALF Eagle engine. I am working on replicating it(the truck).
