    Default Ford F-550 Extended Cab AERIAL Truck??

    Has anyone seen this truck on page 111 in this months Firehouse magazine? I've never seen anything like it. Does anyone know how well these trucks do? Does anyone have one? Any info would be appreciated.

    It's a Ford extended cab F550 has a 40 foot ladder with 500gpm pump w/ foam cabilities and 400 gallon poly tank. The truck was made by Neel Fire Protection Apparatus Inc. (out of Texas I believe). The dept that purchased it is in Colombia, South America.

    I don't know how to post pictures.

    Okay I saw it today. It is a Van Ladder made in Clarks Grove Min. I don't think it meets the new NFPA, but I could be wrong. I wouldn't mind using it for a light tower but not for fire service application in rescue.
