    1st review

    This truck is very, very user friendly. with its digital pump control(RPM and Pressure), pull out/push in controls for hand lines, color coordinated pump panel, two out riggers( that take less then 15 seconds to set in place), easy to use platform controls, easy access to all ladders, LDH, and tools.. Also has tons of scene lighting.... Has an awesome turning radius also...

    Our neighboring City has one of these fine Ladders and it is a Dream! I think it is extremely well designed and built.

    My old fire department has a Sutphen 100' platform and it a really good truck. Only thing I did not like is how the bucket out back and it hard to see when you turn corners. I was affriad of hitting cars when I was turning, but everything was good on driving and running the ladder. We also have E-ONE ladder and platform too, which I ran those more than the Sutphen because where i was station at.

    this is a nice truck our chief wants a mid mount tower but we have a used I believe 1982 sea-grave 100' ladder that only a couple of firefighters are qualified to dry it.

    Personally I feel that Sutphen makes a poor quality product, we've had nothing but trouble with our Sutphens.

    mo_540 said it all. What is he some sort of "rep"? I agree. Have ourselves and it is the easiest truck I've driven, set-up, pumped, and worked off in my FD career.

    Like someone else said this is the most user friendly aerial out there. I had the pleasure of test driving this truck it is great. The turning radius of an engine with the features of a ladder. 2 thumbs up
