Truck 1 is a 2006 Seagrave 100’ tractor drawn aerial ladder. The vehicle is built on the Seagrave Marauder chassis, and includes seating for eight personnel. The vehicle was designed to serve the needs of a busy Truck Company, serving a dense suburban/metropolitan area.
Keeping the vehicle simple and basic were the two fundamentals maintained during the design process. Some of the vehicle’s prominent features include:
Detroit, Series 60, 515 hp engine
Allison Automatic Transmission
Stainless steel construction
10 KW Harrison hydraulic generator
329 feet of usable ground ladders, both rear and side mounted
Aerial ladder rated 250 lbs. at 0 degrees elevation and full extension
Reduced profile aerial tip design to increase aerial maneuverability and ease positioning.
“A” frame outriggers, which allow the vehicle to be positioned for aerial use in very tight spaces, unlike most other aerial apparatus
Low-side trailer compartments and sliding doors on the tiller cab provide increased visibility for the Tillerman
Linex coated crew cab for increased wear resistance
5 ventilation saws
Assorted hooks and other hand tools mounted on the vehicle exterior
