    Default Tractor Drawn Aierals

    What are the advanteges of such a truck. The biggest that I can see is the huge amount space it opens up. I have never worked with one, so just am curious as to why a department goes to that style of truck. Thanks.

    Maneuverabilty may be the biggest advantage in tight city streets. Tight turns at some street corners that are a 3-point attempt for mids and rearmounts are done seamless with TDA's. There are some streets in our district that, when we are responding with the engine out of our house and we are put back in service and we use a crossover to turn around, the engine can't negotiate the 180 U-turn without stopping and adjusting. The tractor drawn I ride does it without stopping.
