    Well that would depend on the manufacturer as well as other custom specs you may have requested. My recommendation would be to contact the manufacturer.

    Pierce recommends practicing different loads, trying to prevent from reinventing the wheel

    My department has 2 E-One Quint's, my neighboring department just got a new Pierce Quint. We all have ours loaded accordian style. We run with 1200' of 5" in the right bed, and 1500' 3" in the left bed. The 5" is a base layer of accordian, and a flat load on top of that. We start the accordian on the inside of the bed, working out toward the chute. Then at the end of the bed we switch to a flat on top. The 3" is a double stack of accordian one on top of another. Just make sure all the air and water are out of the hose, makes it a tighter load.

    Not to be a d--k...but seriously, isn't this something that should have been looked at/figured out before you took posession?

    Whoever specs out your apparatus needs to pull his/her head out.
