Is this unit still available?
Appears to be photos here. Looks real sharp. I wonder how recent the photos are.
Here is some more infromation I think is correct.
Model:: Breakaway. Front entry.
Engine:: Cummins 6BTA5.9. Bosch inline pump w/modification plate. 230 bhp from factory.
Chassis:: Spartan EC 2242. 205' wheelbase. 235/80R 22.5 x 7.5 Michelins. Allison MD 3060 6 speed tranmission with electric control pad.
Data Tag Number:: 9211 3838 33BS1B
It is surprising to me that there are 235/80R/ 22.5 tires on this Breakaway.
Checking the Data Tags, all the Breakaways we know of 33 and over have 22.5 wheels.
"98" Monarch 37
Spartan MM, 6 spd Allison
Cummins 8.3 300 hp
I did not know 33 feet long was the cut off to get larger wheels. The number of lugnuts is different too.
The Data tags shown for tire sizes were for med lab vehicles, the bottom data tag is for Bill NY conversion, these are not representative in this discussion as they are not Breakaway models.
As Steve mentioned most all if not all Breakaways 33 feet and over that we know of have 22.5 wheels.
There is a Gillig Chassis 30' Breakaway that also has 22.5 wheels and this Breakaway is nearly 8,000 lbs heavier then a Spartan chassis 30' Breakaway. This Gillig chassis also has 10 lug bolt wheel mounting. 19.5 even 22.5 wheels can and do have 6 lug bolt mounting
There is no cutoff for tire sizes. Tire sizes are generally selected by vehicle weight, chassis manufacturer or specified by the end user.
94 30' Breakaway #3864
30-BS-6B side entry
230 Cummins, Allison 6 speed
I created a new thread so this conversation will not detract from the owner selling his BaRTH.
Not all that technical, an observation on wheel size and mounting.
