    How do you learn to tiller a tractor drawn quint? Start out on a really cool older truck! Check this out.

    Hey guys,

    I know that there are other tillers built before Woodinville's with 3 axle tractors...but to my knowledge, Woodinville's is the first tiller quint with a three axle tractor.

    Also, LACoFD has 100' tiller quints. The one that was loaned to LAFD had a 100' ladder.

    Amazing!!!!

    It's amazing how a tiller can operate around. It almost looks like it can bend the laws of physics when you see it drive down the road.

    I know it's nothing for most of you guys here but whoever has not seen a tiller in action, you gotta do it. I had a chance to drive a tiller at the Milwaukee Fire Academy a few years ago. You have to turn the opposite way the tractor is turning until you get to the corner and crank it back again. Took some getting used to.

    Like I said, nothing for most guys here but I have to go to either Milwaukee or Minneapolis, MN to see one screaming down the road.

    Keep your head down and your powder dry.

    Don't forget that the Colombus, Ohio Fire Department has tillered aerials with tandem axles. They are ALF eagle tandem axle tractors with LTI 100' aerials. The purchase was for 3 and I believe they were built in 2000. As for LACoFD, the tillered quints by KME they bought have 300 gallon tanks but they are only 75' aerials (33's, 73's, 125's, 127's for example) as well as the one LACoFD loaned LAFD for evaluation. Just some thoughts.

    Stay low and move it in.

    That last rig is 10-98 from Empire Hook & Ladder Co. 1, Upper Nyack, NY (Notice the Tappan Zee Bridge in the background). An absolutely stunning rig to see in person. Notice the all wooden extension ladders.

    Wow! That is some seriously heavy iron for fighting fire. I saw a picture of a tillered quint many years back but didn't realize so many places actually run them. I thought it was one of those "one off" type of things.

    For those of you who've never seen just what a tiller is capable of, here is a link to a cool night time run in DC. Watch the cornering... Enjoy!
