    First off, you must begin to call these "ladders" by their appropriate term when discussing any Massachusetts/New Hampshire/Maine FD.

    We refer to them as "LADDAHS" and this includes the apparatus they are carried on.

    DaSharkie...I must correct you...it's Worcester (Woosta) and east that doesn't pronounce "R"s...Us here in the western part of the state do

    We have 4 tower ladders in the city. I believe only TL-3 has a pump and I've never seen any handlines streched off of it.
