Quincy (MA) Putting $1.45 Million Fire Apparatus into Service

The Quincy fire department is preparing to put into service a new, $1.45 million tiller truck to help firefighters take tight turns and get closer to ever-taller buildings, reports Wicked Local Quincy.

The truck has two chassis and can pivot in the first third of the rig to make it more nimble. The new truck can get closer to buildings because of its better turn radius. The 57.5-foot truck has a 101-foot ladder than can go up about seven stories, depending on the circumstances.
