    Wow lets see who's tallywacker is bigger, after we make fun of thier funny helmets and little ladder trucks. They can make fun of 200 years of tradition uninpeaded by progress andtower ladder trucks that are so big they have their own zip code. Oh btw How much can your tower ladder lift on the bed section..... could you lift a car with your big TL oh no american ladders are not rated for that Metz 100ftladder can lift 8,000 lbs on the bed section. However they dont have hose bed and cant lay in to a fire. but they do have a great hydrant system where they have hydrants in manholes in between.I have lived in The USA most of my life except when i was stationed overseas. And they are advatages to both systems a fire truck over there is looked on as a work truck where we like to combine function with beauty, chrome and paint, polished and buffed.
    The rosenbaur np pumps are not your Hale or Waterous pum[p they have their good and bad. Your department has to decide hate to throw Patroitism into this Np pumps employ German and Austrian workers.And the money you spend on a Rosenbaur goes to Germany. The money you spend on a KME, Pierce, Segrave with a Haleor darly pump the moeny stays here

    Seriously...Get a good night's sleep. This is one of the most incredibly garbled messages I have seen here in a long while. Slow down and try again. Maybe next time it will make some kind of sense.

    By the way, I still think holds true. "Different places, different techniques, as long as we win and all go home it is all good."

    Since when is FDNY in Europe?!? [sarcasm alert] So are you saying second largest in world or Europe? Also what's with all this attitude in all of your other posts? Most of the responses to your posts that I've read are people genuinely interested in how you method works for you. But as usual, Americans are evil, and we stole every great idea we ever had from Europe or Canada. Whatever man. You need to calm yourself down. Trust me, I lost my temper on here once, it didn't bode well, just made me look like an @$$. I also had to come back and apologize as I had mis-read a post and lashed out at one poster unreasonably. It's hard to do, but sometimes a man has to suck it up, put down his pride, and let things go. Just chill man. Also, notice I didn't use any bold letters or exclamation points here, that means I'm being calm and talking to you, not dissing you. Just giving some advice.

    Geez, glad you made that point, man, I can't tell you how many times I've been so frustrated because I couldn't lift a car with either of the ladder trucks at my department. Why in the world would i need to? To lift a car off of the victim, wow, how safe is that? I'll stick to air bags and cribbing thanks.

    However they dont have hose bed and cant lay in to a fire.
    Now, I can tell you I've had to catch a hydrant many a time for our tower, let's see, fire apparatus, equals fire operations, equals hose, who would've thought it. Some places like New York, and other big sities don't need hose on their trucks, as they almost always have an engine in their house that responds with them to a fire, if not, then one close by. My dept., yeah, we have an engine at station one with tower-1, but not at station 3 with ladder three, hence we have a quint there. WEll, tower-1 is a quint, but anyway. Our trucks have hose, because they might be first due sometimes. Anyway, enough of my rant.

    When I buy a ladder truck, I'm buying just that. I really don't care if it can lift infinity tons on the bed section as long as its able to safely handle the loads necessary for a fire service ladder.

    But my trucks are bigger so when I pull into the firehouse, it knows I'm inside. I bet your firehouse asks if you're in yet. Maybe my big, zip code needing fire truck can come across the pond and please your firehouse.

    HAHA, wish I had thought of that response, pretty funny. I love our big zip code needing 100+ ladder and tower trucks. (I think they're jealous over there)

    Why can't we just delete a reply when we realize we screwed up? Can someone tell me that?
