    Default Tower specs

    Would anyone be willing to share a copy of specs for a platform?? We will be starting them soon and I was hoping to be able to get a head-start. Anything would be appreciated....

    What are you looking for? Rear mount or mid mount? Quint or straight truck? We have our specs for a straight mid-mount tower.

    We replaced a twisted stick, so why try anything new?

    Wow. Then either your just starting this process or really need a good thorough needs assessment of your community.
    Stay low and move it in.

    Be safe.

    Recently got the chance to fly a Smeal 100' platform. Had some nice features. Was very smooth operating.
    You may want to try giving the local dealer a call.
    We were told by our local dealer to check there web site that they list complete specs for units in there demo section.
    Good luck!!

    A Spartan / Smeal 100' rear-mount is a very, very good choice. My best suggestion is call Tom Smeal, owner and president of Smeal Fire Apparatus. He can be reached at (402) 568-2224, or http://www.smeal.com.
    If you have any questions or would like more information, and there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

    Yes, we're just starting. No, we don't need a needs assessment......

    Why re-invent the wheel? You can look at other specs and adjust them as needed.........

    What is your reason for wanting a rear mount. It seems from all of the other forums that there are many more advantages to a mid-mount. I tend to agree that a mid-mount is the way to go.

    Why are you only interested in rear-mounts. It seems from all of the other forums that mid-mounts have a lot more advantages. I tend to agree that mid-mounts are the way to go.

    When was the last needs assessment of your community done? Not throwing stones, but you might be surprised what a deliberate look at your community, target hazards, average offsets, etc. might show.

    Good luck none the less.

    Midmounts typically are $80-100,000 more. Typically have less compartment space. We have no height restrictions. Not dead-set on rearmount, but leaning towards it.......
