Looking for feedback on the type of ground ladders everyone is operating with.
On you truck companies.
Do you use "solid style construction" or "truss style construction"?
Using Alcolite or DuoSafety?
We are specifying new aerial apparatus and are evaluating ground ladders. We are looking to find lighter ground ladders as long as they are safe and durable. We currently only have one truck on a 1 alarm fire, therefore most of the time only two firefighters are on the outside truck, and our current 3 section truss style ladders are very heavy, durable, but heavy.
Solid style construction especially with Duo Safety ladders are alot lighter. Is there anyone using 35ft & 28ft 2section solid style Duo Safety Ladders?
Thanks in advance
