    Thibault made good aerial ladders and ground ladders actually, Nova Quintech not so good.
    Having been a Federal Firefighter, and also having several Thibault ladders in my Volunteer area, I can say with confidence that the only thing a Thibault ladder is good for is a boat anchor. Each and every single one of them that I have come across was a piece of junk.

    I have never used a Thibault ground ladder however if they are as good as the aerials, I'm not holding my breath.

    Take Metalfab in New Brunswick. They have built the first SSV to UL/ULC specifications in Canada. It is just up the road from me in Digby.
    TC has NO issues with his breathern to the Frosty North. DON'T think I'm misrepresenting anything in my above statement however. Our neighbors to the East have a Metalfab so the product is familiar to me. T.C.

    Gee, that sounds like the P-23's I had the misfourtune to be assigned to every now and again. Everyone joked around all the time about it until one of the tires (hub and axel attached) came off and crushed one of the SSgt's lexus....

    BTW, we definitely know how to build the best Fireboats, not to get off topic.

    and the Amertek.......can't think of the model but basically the equivalent of the P-19 crash truck....was so bad that most of the Drivers I worked with had our own coffee cups hanging up at the Motor Pool's kitchen.

    FWIW, this particular truck has already spent a year at Pierce (who's now inherited these beasts, apparently) with issues. "Some kind of steel failure" is being blamed but there don't seem to be a lot of details coming out yet.

    Has anyone come across a picture of the failed outrigger? (or stabilizer -- reports vary as to which it was and I'm not familiar with NQ trucks)

    The Thibault clan ran most of the Quebec apparatus manufacturers. Thibault, Pierreville, Phoenix, Nova Quintec etc. Of all the long gone Canadian Manufacturers, King Seagrave made some top quality stuff. Much better than the garbage from Quebec that we had.

    Think the odds are tipped the other way from 50%. NOT to the GOOD side. T.C.
