The Boston Fire Department awarded two orders for 110-foot aluminum aerial ladders to E-ONE, making the new units the 11th and 12th E-ONE aerial ladders purchased by the department in the last few years.
Similar to previous orders, the aerials will be manufactured on the E-ONE Cyclone II, the industry’s strongest custom cab. The strength of the cab combined with features exclusive to the E-ONE aerial design are the reason Boston continues to look to E-ONE for their department’s aerial purchases.
The two new ladders will include the following new features: VMUX electrical control system and FireMaxx air ride suspension. The cabs will feature E-ONE’s severe duty cab interior, suitable for departments needing extreme duty interiors due to rigorous use of the apparatus.
Both units will also be equipped with G4, E-ONE’s electronic stability control system which uses sensors on each wheel to constantly monitor driving conditions and, when critical lateral acceleration is detected or if the tires begin to slip, the system intervenes.
The trucks will also feature an 11-foot jack spread with E-ONE’s criss-cross under-slung jacks and more than 250 feet of ground ladders.
