    Seth, I never denied that Seagrave was doing this job. The job is indeed "in the works." I merely questioned the logic behind it due to the history of 'Scopes on single screws, and the fact that later on in life Mack stopped building them on singles alltogether. In fact if I remember correctly, FDNY even tried to get singles and Mack would not do it.

    Post Brakes On a Single Axle Mack !

    If you drive a single axle Scope at 40 MPH on a fire call and someone pulls out in front of you from a parking lot or side street, you can forget about stopping in time, and radio for a heavy rescue to cut the people out of the car. It's going to take a few hundred feet to stop the apparatus !

    Well put. You completely ignored the question you were posed. I will assume I was right in thinking that you know nothing about the apparatus. You were more concerned about grammar then proving that you knew anything about the tower ladder. Take a seat please and let the people who have seen the rig and know people who work on it talk. You can pretend that "ya, i know about rigs weights and stopping distances." But when you simply attack someone for posing a question it shows how simple minded and petty you really are. Are you even in the fire service? Vol or Career? or are you really just a buff and wish you could be like us. i have no idea.

    Woodbridge,I think that statement would apply to ANY aerial apparatus,double rears or not. I haven't seen ANY aerial at 40 doing 50' shutdowns,Kinda like a TRAIN ya know,hehe T.C .

    That's doable but how about North Haven, say latter part of May? Less distance for you and I've got some relatives nearby I need to catch up with.Plus there should be a big shiny Red and white thing to look at.NO,not a barber pole. T.C.

    The old Mack Aerialscopes don't stop as well as the newer apparatus of today, is what I was trying to say!!

    Hmmn,I think my statement is still VALID, AND the early Mack single X 'scopes had NO Jake. Nor did they have the big brakes on the 31K axle.Nor front discs(EX225). I think it's safe to say with an aluminum body and the right configuration you could build a SAFE 75 footer on a single.With the NFPA mandated brake/supplimental systems. T.C.

    Better yet, lets meet in White Plains. We'll show 77 what a good cheese steak is (not that overpriced tourist trap garbage) and also what worn out brake shoes look like.

    He was referring to me. also since i don;'t know what the name of the other tourist trap cheese steak place is i just went with Gino's. I mean really who puts Chez-Wiz on meat and thinks that's better then some cheddar or maybe little mozzarella. It was a little joke.

    Unfortunately for you, Buff lives in the suburbs of Philly(sort of) and is a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to Philly cheesesteaks.Among his other talents.In case you're new to the apparatus forums , Buff was born with a wrench for a baby rattle. His dad is also an exceptionally sharp guy around trucks.If you're going to the rifle range,best bring something besides a pea shooter. Enjoy! T.C.

    In a jam, it also works well to pack bearings with if you run out of grease.

    I think you mean you went to Geno's, across the street from Pat's.

    Gino's was a hamburger chain started by Gino Marchetti of the Baltimore Colts.

    Provolone is better anyway.

    How did you miss out on that? Just because my car broke down on the way home shouldn't have been a reason.

    I was told unles you have had one from the afore mentioned food outlets, then you haven't really had one...but the guys at Primos Secane station kept us in ready supply of very nice cheese steaks. Even if we were told we were weak without having green peppers.
