I don’t know if this is the same contest that TM noted in 2008 (TM 10/27/08), another episode because they made three of these trucks for a national tour, or some glitch due to the economy — if it’s a continuation of the earlier one, they’re taking forever to pick a winner, or maybe this is turning into a perpetual contest.

In any case, if you’re “a professional contractor or skilled trade worker in construction and currently employed in the construction industry,” you can enter the Lenox Site Commander Sweepstakes before 5/1/2010, and you could win a pimped-out work truck. The basic truck is a 2008 Dodge Ram quad-cab, four-wheel-drive 5500 HD with a 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and a Reading Spacemaster Classic II service body.

This truck comes complete with all kinds of goodies, including its own 7,500-watt Kohler diesel generator to provide both power for the Site Commander and heating and cooling to its mobile office.

Three Dell Latitude XFR computers provide plenty of computing power; there’s one in the “mobile office,” one in the “command center” (next to which is the on-board coffee maker), and one on the Segway x2 Adventure (which has its own storage compartment, or “garage,” with an electric lift). If I were a professional contractor, I’d want to win just for the Segway x2 alone, but then I probably wouldn’t get much done at a work site except to ride it around and “supervise.”

The Site Commander site has many more pictures of the trucks’ construction, their features, and the tour.

    Now if the rules only allowed those not in construction to win. This would be an excellent vehicle to replace our fire investigation van and could be put to use in public fire safety education as well!
