    Is this what you are researching?

    Our 1999 Pierce Saber is experiencing frame rail separation with the double rails from just behind the front spring hangar all the way back to the rear axle. The outer rail has separated from the main frame and is now starting to cut into the understructure of the cab.

    I have sent Pierce a letter to which they have stated that this is a maintenance issue. In their letter they have basically stated to clean out the rust from between the frame rails and then to apply a rust inhibitor (right....).

    The chassis frame rails have a lifetime warranty and it seems as though they will do anything not to warrant this problem. The problem lies in the design of the outer frame rail. With the outer rail starting just behind the front spring hangar; all the road salt, dirt and water from the steer tires is thrown right between the two rails.

    We have bought 4 previous Pierce chassis' and this is the first frame rail issue to occur.

    Anyone experience this sort of issue with Pierce or another manufacturer?

    I am pursuing this further for if this issue is not dealt with soon, we will be replacing this piece within the next five (5) years or sooner depending on how bad our winters get.

    We have had problems with all of our Pierce ladders with the "double frame rails"

    In fact they are all going or have been to Pierce for Frame-Off frame rail replacement. As I understand it, it is common in areas that the DOT applies the salt brine solution to prevent icing on the road-ways.
