Description:

Ladders through-the-tank, hydraulic ladder racks, ladders on beam HME does it all! Fast becoming an industry standard the ladder through-the-tank storage keeps the ground ladders protected within the apparatus. Unlike dual arm racks; hydraulic ladder racks with center point mounting allows fire ground operations to continue with the rack deployed.

    The department I was on several years ago purchased a truck by HME with through the tank ladder storage. This was a great improvement to our older trucks with side mounted ladder racks because it allowed for more equipment storage on the sides of the truck, as well as on top. Not to mention, the ladders were much easier to remove from the truck since in most cases one person can retrieve the ladder. With some side mounted units, it sometimes requires two firefighters. I love the setup, and would highly recommend it.

    Nice. Keeps the ladders nice and clean. Check the front of the compartment after hard breaking.
