Looking for information on single and tandem axle aerials
I am doing some research in to the various aspects of a single axle ladder versus a tandem axle. I have searched all of the internet and all of the publications and have the pros and cons for both. I am looking for some more information relating to these two subjects, especially comparing wheel bases and maneuverability. I would also like to know some history on what apparatus out there on single axle chassis relating to maintenance and reliability over the long haul. I have contacted the City of St Louis to find out about the reliability and out of service time for their quints they run with the TQC concept, but have not had any response. Any articles or information you can get me about this subject would be fantastic and I would really appreciate it. I have not had a lot of luck and am really trying to compile somoe good information and need everyone's help. Thanks.
