        Is there some reason I haven't heard of to split the lay like this? I'd be inclined to put LDH on one side, smaller hose on the other. What gives?
        My guess is to keep the load balanced; easier on the hydraulics and lifting mechanism.

          Yup, and the sides fold down, and those center sections of 2 1/2 can be slid out to load independantly as well. The idea is no one climbs anywhere on the truck.

          A waste of space, weight, and money to me.

            I've seen lots of sales promotion pictures of this "innovation" by Pierce. Does anyone know anyone that actually HAS one of these? Really would be curious to see how they actually work on a fireground, not a sales demo.

            Awfully clean gear and hose in that picture...

                You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

                              Climb two steps to get up top and you have the same effect.

                              Loading a 4 or 5" flat lay is just about the easiest task in the service.

                              I'm waiting for a hydraulic arm with a manipulator to lay the hose while the bed lowers itself to the ground.

                                Not to mention one more moving part to break and have to keep paying to fix once it starts showing it's age.
