    [QUOTE=RoofTopTrucky;1291076]In looking to replace our 89' E-One 135...

    Do you guys feel you will miss the extra 35' at all? Just curious.

    I don't think it's been mentioned, but E-One does offer a CR137 now (not on a tiller though).

    I do have to give credit where it's due here. I've driven many different brands and styles of ladder/platform trucks. The aluminum ladder (or platform for that matter) seems significantly less top-heavy than the steel versions. There is a huge driveability (sp?) difference.

    Sutphen all the way baby!!!! I love the old Mack Aerialscopes too, but for newer trucks, I'm a diehard Sutphen man.

    Only been without it for a little over a year and We do miss it a little. At the time of replacement they had quit offering the 135' so we went another direction. Then, a few months prior to delivery, they announce the 137 model (135). Like I said, we do miss having the extra 35' but don't regret it (atleast not yet)
    It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.

    It take more than a new Leather Helmet to make you a good officer

    I bet even with the 135 there was times you wish you had another few feet. Thats the problem with ladders, no matter how long they are you will always come up short sometime.

    Cool Aerial Preference

    As I posted previously, I find it very interesting that the two most prefered aerials are manufactured out of Aluminum. Now we can understand why Pierce jumped on board and started offering aluminum aerials. It only took them 30 years to fiqure it out.
