    First, Reiffton's:


    2004 Pierce 95' Ladder Tower

    Now, Humane's:



    1975 Seagrave 100' Ladder, refurbed in 1991. As it says on the website,
    This is a true truck. It carries no water, except for a couple of cans.
    Hells yeah .


    So, there are my two companies' trucks, or as I like to call them, Old School and New School, lol.

    Thats because they are almost real ladder trucks- Not those things with waste-of-compartment and waste-of-valuable-ground-ladder space.

    Oh, yeah....and a REAL ladder truck has TWO steerin' wheels!

    Precisely, as I mentioned with the one quote from our page: "This is a true truck. It carries no water, except for a couple of cans." And of course the reference to old school vs. new school.

    Personally, I'd rather jump off our truck and NOT have an officer tell me to grab the noodle off it...lol...

    (PS, yes, I did know you were joking....)

    our pump panel is on the driver side of the truck.for the master stream and one crosslay. here's another picture, the ladder on our truck isnt fully extended cause the straight stick in that picture (company 2) is only 75'
