Custom ATV gets the done
Monroe firefighters used their custom-made Polaris all-terrain vehicle to knock down a field fire on County P in southern Green County earlier this week. The truck, built by Davis Welding, has been such a success, the company has made variations for Brodhead and Belleville, officials said. The $17,000 vehicle was paid for with a combination of public funds, donations and grants.
The Monroe Fire Department has something unique in its fire-fighting arsenal to make the job a little easier: It's a special, six-wheeled truck - custom-made from a Polaris Ranger ATV by Davis Welding of Monroe.
