    Default Manufacturers of 75' platforms

    Does anyone other than Suptphen, ALF, and Seagrave (Aerialscope) manufacture NFPA compliant platforms less than 76'?

    Sutphen dose offer 75's Only problem....in my opinion.....is the design of how the bucket hangs over the rear. There are a few in my area and many of those few have whacked their bucket off of anything from thier firehouse, to smacking it off the ground while accending a steep grade. I'm not saying that it's Sutphens fault by any means....it's obviously a case of "knowing your rig" but it's still something to think about.
    It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.

    Sorry Dudley, I only scanned your message and didn't see you had already listed Sutphen.

    RK does a 75' platform, which means Alexis, Toyne, and Rosenbauer can build it for you, among others.

    While I'm not a big KME fan, their MM platform functionality is beautiful. In 2005-6 we had too many reliability questions to really consider them a final contender, but the bucket design is great, the 90 degree to the sidewalk test is unbeatable, manual stick controlled gun- no problem, and the scrub area is about the best.

    not to be too big of a jerk, but the Sutphen platform is actually a 70', not a 75'.
