Strong, Stable, Committed to the Fire Service Since 1890
Sutphen's proven Aerial Ladder Truck mid-mount design provides superior weight distribution on chassis, extraordinary maneuverability, and easy access to the pumper-like hose bed, as there are no hose chutes or turntable in the way. The extruded-aluminum ladder is highly resistant to corrosion and has extraordinary strength and torsional rigidity, resulting in a 3:1 safety factor. Sutphen Aerial Ladder Trucks boast tip loads as high as 1000# and 750# while flowing 1500 gpm at any angle, at full extension.
Experience and Focus are what set Sutphen apart from the competition. Over 130 years of experience go into each apparatus that we build, and our Company focus is to build the safest and most effective product available. Quality, craftsmanship, and family values have been our passion for over a century. It is what we do, and nobody can do it better.
