    Question:

    How big are your ladder trucks? I know your streets are small and I was just wondering.

    Question:

    Are those small cars a pain to cut up or do they do well in a wreck?

    Hi Fireman61.

    Our trucks are not as big as your trucks. They average around 8ft wide and a normal ladder truck would be around 25ft long. As you say our streets are narrower making driving them a little more difficult through the citys.

    As for the cars, they vary so much, a BMW 7 series looks the same as yours I guess when pushed into a street light. Some of the smaller cars stand up pretty well considering.
    May be something to do with our streets being narrower we cant swerve about as much as in the States

    We have some pictures of our machines here
