    Default Looking for 75' Aerialscope

    Brothers and Sister,

    My house is searching for a 75' single axle Aerialscope to initiate our crew into the truck business before Walmart gets built next year. After that concludes we plan to remount the boom/jacks onto a new chassis.

    Anyone out there have any leads on the truck we desire?

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    My department has one. It's been OOS for a couple of years now, mostly because of letting the aerial certification lapse (financial reasons and obtaining a replacement unit).

    Enable your PM and I'll send you contact info if you're interested.

    75 foot is not long enough for a Walmart or box store. You need reach more than hieght to stay out of the collapse zone. 95 minimum 105 would be more ideal. I suggest you take a hands on class and see what it takes to place a ladder on a building similar to that.

    I understand that but Walmart is not our primary concern at this moment and I do realize it will not be enough to clear the building effectively but there are some trade offs we have to look at, such as the streets, narrow roads and long driveways we contend with dictates that we stay with a single axle aerial apparatus and a straight stick will not fill our needs as we have that currently as our 1st due truck and each time we have used them the ladder stayed bedded.

    So 75' scope or a Sutphen SP70 are the about the only things the company or I will consider based not on "cool factor" but the because we have done our box area research extensively.

    I agree that a stick is not the way to go. I still think 75 is to short.

    And perhaps you should realize this is THEIR department with THEIR different needs, not yours.

    Well the hunt continues, we had one lined up but it fell threw, we have another potential but circumstances are not working out for either of the companies.

    So like I said the search goes on, any one got any updated leads?
