Clintonville, Wisconsin: Seagrave Fire Apparatus received an order for twelve 95 foot Aerialscope aerial platforms from FDNY.

Seagrave Chairman & CEO A. Joseph Neiner said, “Of course we are thrilled in the confidence FDNY has in the Seagrave product. Seagrave has been building apparatus for FDNY for 110 years.” Neiner credits building apparatus for the City of New York as just one example of why Seagrave is the most trusted brand in the industry. “Building apparatus for FDNY, where fire trucks can be put to the test numerous times a day, requires that you build product to the highest durability standards in the industry and that’s what we have done at Seagrave,” continued Neiner.

These 95’ aerial platforms for FDNY feature Seagrave’s Maruader II chassis and Aerialscope aerial customized to FDNY specifications. The Marauder II chassis with stainless steel split-tilt cab and rectangular-tube steel roll cage construction provides the safest environment for firefighters to and from the scene. The Marauder II FDNY cabs feature a raised roof, extremely durable interior treatments, and additional protection for cab interior occupants. The Marauder II chassis for this order features a Cummins ISX 500 HP coupled to an Allison EVS 4000 transmission with additional bumper reinforcement and undercarriage protection. The FDNY specification demands apparatus performance characteristics that create a unique apparatus build. The 95’Aerialscope aerial for FDNY features improved hydraulic performance, service-friendly diagnostics and a compact boom for shorter overall truck length, providing an unrestricted 1000 lb. platform rating while flowing 1250 GPM of water. The apparatus body is built for the demanding FDNY duty cycle. Stainless steel material, grating for all walkways, and extra rear protection against low speed impacts are some of the unique features provided by Seagrave.

Neiner concluded, “The apparatus industry is ever-changing and Seagrave is committed to meeting the challenges with a design that offers the highest safety performance and best lifetime value for all Fire Departments.”
