    Ferrara builds their own cab and chassis, Inferno and Igniter. Very nice cabs although a little expensive. They do use a Ferrara logo'ed HME P2 cab and chassis for their STAT program truck line. They will build on any HME or Spartan chassis also.

    Also--are there any advantages/disadvangtages between a super commercial and a "custom."

    just curious

    Ferrara cab and chassis are actually manufactured by HME for them with one of them having their own cab.

    Ferrara as previously mentioned will do it, and I've seen KME build on Spartans. I may be incorrect, but you could (and I still think can) get an ALF (well, RD Murray body) on a Spartan.

    E-One will still do their bodies on Spartan for certain, I know of one coming for a Chicago suburb in about a month.

    The Super Commercial name was given initially to their entry level line of custom cab pumpers, and the way E-One could do this was to use an entry level Spartan which was cheaper to use than an E-One built cab. However, I know that E-One will put their bodies on higher end Spartan chassis as well.

    Ed can probably verify this as well, but I'm certain there have been Sutphens put on Spartan chassis, though just because they've done it doesn't mean they'll do it again.

    As far as what is better, some folks think a Spartan chassis is superior to other custom chassis offered, some don't. I kind of respect a body builder that understands that while you may like their bodies, you don't necessarily want to be force fed their chassis.
