  • Dallas FD ladder tower failure?

    Does any one know when one of Dallas FD crimson midmount ladder tower had its failure. From what I found It maybe a 2007 or 2010 model.

    The photo I have seen shows that it was set up with the tower around 25% up out of its cradle when the failure happened. It looks like the uni-torque box/chassis broke between the main body and the rear of the compartment under the turntable.

    And if anything has been said why it had the failure.

      Thanks Scooby heard about the recall that's about all that I heard about and the photo I have of it.

      Was wondering if anyone was in the platform at the time the failure. If they where off to the side and higher elevation and further exstention this would have have caused serious injuries or worse if the torque frame would have twisted and possible separated from its self.

      The photo looks like they where training, testing, or doing checks doesn't look like it was at a call or event when it happened.
