  • 1975 Maxim 100 Ladder

    Anyone know where I can get specs for this truck such as tip load, etc.

    Mack and Crown were both big users of Maxim ladders. Also, Ward LaFrance used some. Assuming they used standard ladders, maybe their archives would have that info. You can get Ward LaFrance info at www.wardlafrance.com.

    Stay safe out there, everyone goes home!

      You need to get a hold of Howard T. Smith, up in Wareham, Ma. he has authored several books on Maxim Fire Apparatus, and I believe he holds what is left of the factory archives, blueprints, etc etc. His website is: http://www.maximfiretrucks.com/

        I am not sure, but I seem to remember hearing that a company in MA bought the plans, prints etc for Maxium ladders. I will have to send an e-mail asking but I think some fellow New Englanders may have the information you need....

          I'm pretty sure Greenwood Fire Apparatus of North Attleboro, MA(?) bought the patents, rights and logos for Maxim. They are the Northern New England E-One dealer.

            In '75 there wasn't much for performance specs.Most Maxims were 250# tip load. T.C.

              I don't think anyone left alive knows more about Maxim ladders than Earl Everhart at VTEC in Williamstown, VT

                Did you get the e-mail from T.W.? He said he sent you one about your question.....
