  • Sutphen SPH100

    Any departments out there running a newer model Sutphen platform, what are your likes, dislikes, problems, or things that should have been changed during the pre-build, or specs. Is it a truck company body, or quint model pump & tank, also what is the O.A.L. of the apparatus, because Sutphen claims it has the best in class turning radius over other manufactures ?

    I can't really give you an unbiased opinion as I sell for them, but it's a hard aerial to beat due to strength of aerial, total weight of truck, 1000 tip load with 3:1 safety ratio, available 230" wheelbase, etc.

    Best thing to do is contact your local sales reps and request a demo.

    My department has had nothing but Sutphen aerials since 1986 and we currently have 4 SPH100's, 2 SP70's, 2 SA75's, and 8 SP95's.

      We plan on looking at one on September 12th, & 13th at the New Jersey Fire Expo, we want something with a decent ladder with hand rails, 5 section mid mount to reduce the O.A.L. of the apparatus ,and a short wheelbase, no pump, no tank. We will be replacing a Baker Aerialscope in about a year or two.

          We will also be looking at the Rosenbauer 88' Mid Mount, Spartan ERV 93' the new Pierce 100', and the Kme 84' Mid Mount.
          The truck bay is only 45-47 feet long, so there is a limit on what type of apparatus will replace the Baker Aerialscope, also it must have a climbing ladder, for rescues and access to the platform for firefighters. We will be at the NJ Expo for 3 days.
