  • What type of Truck?

    So what type of Truck Company does your department use, TDA's (Tractor Drawn Aerials), Elevating platforms, Mid mount or rear mount aerials, My department uses an 81 LTI which is 91 feet I believe we are the only FD in our area that does not have a TDA in it's fleet. So what type of Truck do you use?

    My city's dept. has 2 platforms. A 2000 Sutphen midmount and a 1994 Duplex/Grumman rearmount.
    Ohh, and a 50" TeleSqurt, but I wouldn't call that a ladder truck, just a truck with a "ladder" on it.

        We have two arials. One is a 95' midship mount sutphen tower. (1994) The other, in its broadest definition, is a 1968 pirsch 85' heap o' crap mounted on a single axel ford chasis. (Midship mount) It also has screw jacks. Bet ya don't have anything that scary in your fleet! Thankfully ladder 8 is not in service.

                We run a 1998 75' E-One. Built for low manpower situations. Very dependable truck.

                      My old dept (seriously cash-strapped and under-supported by the community) was at the time of my relocation, seriously considering purchasing a power company lineworker's bucket truck for ventilation work. This would've been their fifth piece of apparatus, joining two engines, a tanker and an equipment van. Anyone ever tried that? Would've been useless for rescues, but the entire district is 10% suburban, 90% rural, and I don't think any structure is beyond the reach of ground ladders. Just would've saved some broken limbs from crewmembers sliding down slippery roofs. Just watch those power lines!!!! (like you would with any other aerial anyway)

                      I don't know if it is legal or not, OSHA and NFPA and XYZ, etc. But when you have no resources, you improvise. That is the story of the service, isn't it?

                        We currently have a 1987 110' rear mount E-ONE (AERIAL 1), a 100' rear mount Mack (AERIAL 11), and 2- 2000 75' Pierce Dash rear mount quints (QUINTS 2 & 7). Also 2 Rescue Companies assist the truck/quint companies with truckwork at fires.

                            We replaced an '81 ALF TDA with a 105' heavy duty ladder on a Pierce Lance with All-steer and 1500 gpm pump and 500 gallon booster. Made up some lost space with a transom compartment under the rear of the cab for 12 tools. Roll-doors have worked nicely. Sister company has same w/o All-steer and traditional doors. Have to duck and hang that much further into traffic. The All-steer has worked fairly well unless you're a parked car or street sign.

                              We operated a 75 Mack CF Tiller with a 100' stick. She is one hell of a truck.
