    Approx $800-$1000 more than an aluminum cover, I have been told.

    Nice rigs, our department has I think five spartan gladiator chassis built on by smeal. They are awesome, smeal makes a good apparatus.

    don't think i have heard too many things bad about Toyne or Smeal. Yes i know all mfr's have good days and bad, but overall there seems to be a general satisfaction with both builders.
