When you need high performance from your fire apparatus, you need Sutphen. There's nothing like a Sutphen, and there's no other aerial ladder that can match our SL75 Mid-mount Aerial Ladder.
While flowing up to 1,500 gallons per minute of water, this aerial is rated at a 750-pound tip load, and when dry, the aerial offers an astonishing 1,000-pound rating, by far the highest in the industry. Additionally, set up time is just 20 seconds using one central control, the fastest in the industry.
The SL75 is built on Sutphen's own designed and built single axle chassis, and features our signature mid-mount technology that provides better maneuverability and ease of handling due to a low center of gravity. Sutphen construction features the highest quality 6005-T5 aluminum and just like Sutphen's other aerial products, includes aircraft style Huck Bolts that provide superior strength and performance - unlike commonly used welds that can easily break. It is this combination of strength and mid-mount technology that gives the new 75' ladder a 3:1 structural safety factor.
Other features of the new ladder include an electric radio controlled monitor and nozzle that can be operated at the tip of the third or the fourth section of the ladder. The aerial is also equipped with a full capacity bolt-on egress tip.
