    If it could be engineered, I would think that there would be absolutely no compartment space.

    If anyone is aware of an aerial like that, post away!
    We've got a truck with 1500 gallons of water and 1000 feet of 5-inch, but just a 55-foot telesquirt. It's kind of underpowered, but a modern chassis (i.e. one that isn't meant to be a garbage truck like the current Mack MR) might fix that. Either way, it still won't be fitting under any bridges anytime soon.

    Fallon's are squirts also, right? Anyone able to come up with a weight difference between a 75' squirt vs a 75' stick?

    Are the boom sections on a 75' Telesqurt made from " ALUMINUM " ?

    This brings up a good point. I believe they are but I will find out for sure.

    I do know that they re-engineered the 75' squrt so that it could fit onto a single rear axle without overweighting the truck and also making it nest shorter. However, I do not know all of the details into this.

    I was quite surprised when I found out we were getting a 75' squrt. The last I knew, you could only get this length squrt with a tandem axle.

    I couldn't begin to guess, we run a 75' steel aerial, 300 gallons on board.
