    New American Lafrance Aerial

    The Woodbridge, N.J. Fire Department just took delivery of a new ALF/LTI 110' aerial ladder with a 2000 gpm pump.This truck replaces a 12 year old Seagrave RA110 that was damaged last year at a fire scene in Fords, N.J. when the buildings facade fell onto the turn table and caused $ 40,000 in repairs. " Happy Birthday ALF " !....

      American LaFrance, you all are as famous, if not more famous, than the Famous FDNY Trademark.

      HAPPY B-DAY!

        Happy Birthday Alf

        I Sure Hope They Stay Around For Another Year, Just Signed Papers On A Pumper-tanker.
        YOU ONLY NEED TO BE STUPID ONCE TO BE DEAD FOREVER!

          Happy Birthday....on that day I was in SC getting our rig. Met the new owners and they talked with us about our rig and what we thought about ALF.
          We love our 2005 Metro.

                Happy Birthday ALF. I was down there a couple of weeks ago and saw the new facility being built and met the president of the company. I was very impressed. ALF is positioning theirselves to be the pre-dominant fire truck manufacturer again in th USA.

                  I thought American LaFrance has been in business for over 100 years?? That's what they say in their specifications and ads as a strength of their company. So which is it, 100+ or 1????

                  Still can't compare a TRUE older ALf against the "new" ones - not even close

                    The American LaFrance Fire Engine Company was officially formed in 1903. The company died when the Elmira, New York facility shut down. Just because some investors buy the name, it doesnt necessarily mean that they have bought the tradition. Isn't that right Mr. Figgie?
                    I have only 2 allegiances, to my country and to my God. The rest of you are fair game.

                      The company was officially re-born when Patriarch took over, and released them from the grip of Freightliner.
                      Stand back and watch as they revolutionize the fire apparatus industry. Down with Pierce, down with E-One, down with all the rest - American LaFrance is back with both guns blazin! YEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAA - oh yeah - down with Rosenbauer too (although they will do that to themselves).

                        It will be a cold day in hell when any new ALF product comes close to the class and style of a Century Series.

                        Well .. that's actually true of all the manufacter's today.

                        RIP Maxim, Mack, Hahn and Pirsh.

                          Class and Style?

                          I'll put an Eagle Cab up against any cab out there when it comes to pure looks! No matter how much you dress up a Spartan / Pierce / E-One - they still look like big square boxes.

                              Old school here boys ...

                              Ya can't compare the "boxes" of today with the lines of an old 60's 500 Series open cab, or a beautiful early 70's Ladder Chief or a 700 Series pumper.
                              You could tell a LaFrance from anything else a mile away. You could hear the distinctive sound of a LaFrance. Sorry, that classic painting "The New LaFrance is here" (I think it's a Rockwell) just wouldn't be the same with one of those new fangled LaFrance boxes sitting in that small town fire station.

                              I am not saying that the new LaFrances are not capable fire apparatus. But lok at the trucks from yesterday and look at the trucks from today, and tell me which ones have charecter. Anyone who knew thier beans in the old days could tell if a truck was a LaFrance or Seagrave or Pirsh or Maxim or Hahn a mile away. They each had thier own charecter that made them very unique. You just don't see that with todays trucks. The charecter is missing.

                              Just one old firefighters opinion.
