Truck 1 is a Pierce tiller ladder.
About this creation
Truck 1 is a Pierce tiller ladder. It was inspired by tillers in Eugene, Seattle and Sacramento. It uses lots of SNOT (Studs Not On Top) technques. The design is almost zero-studs. The design is original work.



Compartments hold the rescue equipment.





Tiller ladders can turn around corners more easily than other ladder trucks. The ladder apparatus also rotates.



Ladders stored in compartment.





The ladder can be raised. Stabilizers fold down to keep the rig from tipping.







It's inspired by Seattle's new Pierce tillers

the reason for the double axle is due to both state highway regulations and give increased power and traction when climbing hills

Wow. The first pic up on this one I thought was a real picture of the tiller until I looked closer. That's good work right there. Everything else you did is icing on the cake. Great work.

Awesome!!! I think that Seattle, Portland, and other cities in the Northwest utilize dual-axle tractors because of the mountainous terrain they need to cover, along with a lot of rain that cause roads to become slick. More wheels = better braking... Please correct me if I'm wrong...

Quoting Chris Sullivan-Irwin when i first saw this i thought of Seattle since there the only place i know that has a tiller with that fifth wheel set on the tractor. You did a great job capturing the look man! and welcome back!
Thanks! That was the inspiration rig. There's also a tandem axle tiller in Eugene and Sacramento. Any experts know why the extra weight?
