Strong, Stable, Committed to the Fire Service Since 1890
Sutphen Aerial Platform Fire Trucks feature the Mid-Mount design that provides unsurpassed safety, performance, reliability, and maneuverability. Only one out and down jack each side provides the industry’s quickest and most compact set-up. The Mid-Mount design with a high pivot point gives firefighters the capability of working at low angles over the cab, and work on a 360-degree basis without moving the apparatus. The aerial device itself is constructed using patented Huck Bolt technology, the same that is used in commercial and military aircraft. The elimination of welding the aerial reduces the risk of fatigue and cracked welds that can lead to costly repair and down time. The aerial is a four sided, box-boom design, allowing for a stronger aerial device and a totally enclosed, protected waterway. Sutphen Aerial Platforms for Fire Trucks are available in tandem and single axle models, the only one in the industry.
