Moving on with the County 60 Best of 2010 awards, the next category is for Best Stick. My Crimson 75ft Rear Mount Aerial took home the honors.

I had fun with building this one. This 75 footer is a replacement to the 103 ft aerial that I found as overkill for my Stony Creek Fire Department that already operates an 100ft E-One and an 95ft Suthpen Tower.

This Crimson is mounted to a Spartan Gladiator Chassis with a powerful 525hp Cat Diesel and Allison tranny. There is a 1000 gpm Akron monitor attached to the 3 section 75ft ladder. Pump operations are handled by a Hale DSD 1250 gpm pump & 500 gallon tank.
