    I talked with a VERY reliable source who told me Seagrave will put an older 75 ft. Aerialscope on a new single axle Marauder II chassis but the new 75 ft. Aerialscope II is to heavy for a single axle. I don't know what changes were made to make the new version weigh more.

    Supposedly the aerial was lifted from the old chassis the last week of April.

    This is correct. They took the old boom and stabilizers off and are placing it on the new chassis. Still no word if they are getting it in time.

    Deputyhunter - is the scope going to be delivered or is it going to be inspected at Seagrave next week ?

    I'll be in Marion inspecting and picking up our new squad, its only a short drive to the Segrave plant. Maybe I can get some pictures, if i'm lucky.

    Post Nothing New !

    Baker mounted the 75' Scope on Mack CF chassis for over 20 years with a single rear axle,the only difference now is the federal weight standards. Seagrave is most likely going with a 31,000 LB rear just like the Mean Stick ?

    Wow...delivery of a fully refurbished aerial device including torque box and superstructure, mounted on a brand new chassis, with a brand new body being built around it, when the used aerial in question was being yanked from the old chassis on April 29th? Just a little bit less than three weeks ago?? Boy they are better than I thought they were!

    The rig left their fire house at the end of February. In my last post i was just speaking about them taking the boom and stabilizers, not the date it went out. Should have mentioned that in the post

    The Seagrave company did'nt build trucks that fast for the F.D.N.Y. after the " 911 " WTC attack, sounds like a rumor to me !!

    The above is NOT true, I don't know where this person is getting their information.......

    Hereís a rundown so far:

    The Chassis is completed
    The boom has been removed form the old chassis and disassembled,
    Platform has been rebuilt and refinished. A new walkway w/rubber bumper has been installed
    Waterway has been rebuilt and assembled
    Super Structure and other components are being sandblasted and prepped for reassembly
    Torque Box is being assembled

    An in-process inspection will be taking place the beginning of June

    Delivery to Excelsior (the local Seagrave dealer) wonít be until Mid July. The delay in delivery date when I originally estimated was tentative, based on when Seagrave recieved the truck, the materials and parts, etc.

    And that's from a RELIABLE source...

    However, there may be some R&D going on at Seagrave to make a lighter-weight, yet still heavy duty new Aerialscope boom to put on a single axle chasis. Based on the strong interest that this new truck is generating, and Seagrave's numerous new and planned advancements with the Aerialscope line, I wouldn't be suprised to see that come on the market within the next few years....
