    Alco Lite I believe.

    We have all sizes from 12' roof ladders to 45-50' Bangor Ladders. Sorry do not know exactly. When I get home I will try to post some pics of the ground ladders on our TL.

    On our newest truck we exceeded the NFPA recomendation by one ladder

    2 35' two section
    1 28' two section
    1 20' roof ladder
    1 16' roof ladder

    and of course the attic ladder, all Alco Lite.

    The most improtant thing to figure is what your jurisdiction needs. All too often I see trucks with the standard NFPA set of ladders, which is close to useless.

    If you have buildings that need a 50' ladder, then get one and worry about getting the firefighters to throw it later. It is easier to gather several companies to throw a ladder then not to be able to reach an objective.

    Our first out pumper is a "quad" concept. On the officer's side is a 35' 3 section and a 14' roof ladder. On the driver side is a 26' 3 section, and a 12 roof. Also the attic ladder. All Duo-Safety.

    Yesterday we signed the contract with Toyne to replace our 1978 Hahn pumper (which only has a 35' and a 14') The new pumper will have the same exact make-up as the older first out piece, except the new piece will also have a "Little Giant."
