  • E-one aerials

    Does anyone have pics of an E-One aerial that has a long cab? I've done some searching and only found one(can't remember where). Also does anyone know why they don't offer long cabs as an option on their aerials.

    We have a 1997 E-One 75ft Aerial. 6 man cab, I don't know if it's what you consider long though. If you like, you can give me your email and I can send you pictures.

      The lenght of your cab depends on your size of ladder, pump panel, and what wheel base you want. most of e-ones 75'ers have a 210 or 215 wheelbase with a 58 inch cab. 58" will seat 6. You can get a 67.5, you just sacrafice wheelbase and maybe pump panel size, for about the same amont of seating.

        I have some photos of E-One aerials with long cabs. What size ladder are you talking about?

            58" cab, can seat 6. The one in the picture may only seat 5, pending the seating arangement in the back and size of ems cabnet. They measure the end of the cab to the center hub of front axle.

              We currently have an 2003 HP 75 foot quint with a 6 man cab with the 67.5 cab( I think ). It's not the short cab that Seattle uses, but appears to be the same cab on every 75' quint I can find.

              I was wondering more about the long cabs that can be found on the Cyclone II cabs, this is the cab we currently use on our engines.

              Can this cab be ordered on a tower/ 100' plus ladder. Minus the raised roof.

              I assume this is the short cab.

                67.5" CA HP75 on a Cyclone II

                ECFR1978

                Below is a link to the C2 page at E-One. Standard appears to be 58" C-A Medium Cab:

                http://www.e-one.com/index.asp?n=87&p=87&s=73&pid=1

                Here is a Pic of an HP75 with a 67" C-A Long Cab (E-One does offer an Extended Long Cab (C-A @ 80"; but not sure with an Aerial ("that's way out there"; changes weight distribution of the rig substantially & no one wants to go messing around with that on a High Performance Ladder).

                  Last year my company bought a used 1992 E-0ne 75' Quint. It is a long cab and seats 6. 3 in the front and 3 in the back. We could seat 7 if we decided to take out the medical cabinet.

                    This was the truck I was refering to earlier. How come this cab(the length) isn't used more on E-Ones?

                    Anyone out there have any info on this truck?

                      One word - ROOM (really three words - TURNING RADIUS). If memory serves that is a Hurricane cab, engine is in the rear portion of the cab. Buy having the engine between the Driver and Officer you give the larger (6ft+) guys room to don equipment.
                      The evidence of God's presence far outweighs the
                      proof of His absence.

                        Bryn Mawr, like us, is also in Montgomery County, Pa. and to the best of my knowledge one of only two "Bryns" in the nation (we're the other). I've only been in their station once or twice, and not for many years. As few miles as there are between us, you can't hardly get from one to the other. I do recall that they have some unique size, overhead clearance and maybe even weight challenges that they would have to factor into their decisions on what they buy. Maybe one of their members would jump in here and tell us about it.

                          The truck is a 2002 Hurricane with 100 foot ladder. The station was built in 1906 so there are some serious height and length restrictions that the fire company has to live with. The overall height can not exceed 11'. As for the cab there are 4 air pack seats in the back that is why the door is moved forward to give better access to the cab. I do not remember the overall length of the truck but it fills the bay from front to rear, about 2 feet from the back wall of the building and right up against the front door. If you need more details I can get them just drop me a message.

                            Correct me if I'm wrong, please, but is there not also a basement under the bays that gives them some weight concerns as well?

                              The floor was reinforced prior to the 1994 ladder truck. There should not be any issues with the truck going into the basement for many years to come. The biggest issue was having to buy an inline 6 verus the v8. The inline made the truckl longer.
