Product Description

Ferrara’s 100’ rear mount platforms are designed and engineered for firefighter safety, as well as operations under extreme environments. Our standard 100’ rear mount platform models meet all the requirements of NFPA.

The engineered strength of the aerial allows us to offer a 500 pound tip load, while flowing 1,500 GPM of water, at any angle or elevation. Not flowing water our tip load is 1,000 pounds.

With an operational range of –8 degrees to +72 degrees, the 100’ platform maintains a horizontal reach of 98’ at zero degrees elevation and reaches a full vertical height of 100’ at 72 degrees. All aerials receive independent third party non-destructive testing, which include third party flow and structural inspection.

For Quint configurations multiple pump options are available from all of the major manufacturers ranging in capacities from 1,250 GPM to 2,250 GPM. Water tanks from 200 to 300 gallons feature lifetime warranties and can be custom designed to meet your capacity requirements.

Mathias Schmidt Mathias Schmidt Thursday, May 22, 2014 7:52:10 AM #1 What is the GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT? - the weight at which the manufacture says it is safe to operate the vehicle this INCLUDES the "curb" weight of the vehicle EMPTY plus the weight of the equipment to be carried. Example you own a 40,000 pound GROSS weight apparatus you load ALL your equipment and hose on take the unit to the local DOT or privately operated CERTIFED scale WITH the full number of crew weigh the unit and find out that it is 1,500 pounds over the GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING, the unit MUST be removed from service and brought back to the SAFE LOAD LIMIT #2 FEDERAL DOT REGULATIONS DO NOT EXEMPT emergency apparatus from the maximum weight they can carry just like the private sector. #3 Was there a weight analysis completed BY THE MANUFACTURE of the apparatus and presented to the department?? #4 Was there a DEPARTMENT list of mandatory and optional equipment to be carried included in the DEPARTMENT specs for the apparatus which should of included the WEIGHT of EACH ITEM???? FINALY look at the COMERCIAL truck traffic in the municipality, if the streets are not being damaged by them which can weigh between 10,000 - 80,000 pounds then this is a pissing match between the commissioners and the fire department!!!!!
