Dan Spearin forwarded me this photo one of his coworkers took last week of the new ladder 7. The truck should be in service soon. I must say that that truck looks pretty damn good.

Ladder 13 is reportedly ready to begin once the funds are allocated. The truck will be basically the same as Ladder 7 but have a 105′ ladder on top and be a little longer.


Ladder 7 is in production at the Pierce plant. This 75′ rear mount, tandem rear end unit will be  utilized as a quint and take the place of Ladder 7 which is currently a similar setup with single rear end and only 10 years old.
