1971 Sanford Quint . This is a 1971 Sanford Quintuple Combination or "Quint". It has a 1000 gpm Waterous pump and a 300 gallon water tank. It is built on a Ford C800 Chassis and has a gasoline engine. It has a Grove three-section 85-foot aerial ladder. . A quint combines five different functions. It has a pump, carries water and hose like a pumper. But it also has an aerial ladder and carries more ground ladders than a pumper. Most quints carry less ground ladders than traditional ladder trucks, which do not have a pump or carry hoses and water. This quint is typical of the many ladder trucks engines built on the ubiquitous Ford C Series that was produced from 1957 to 1990. The Ford C Series remains by far the most used chassis, commercial or custom, for fire apparatus. In an amazing 33 year production run, over a quarter-million C Series trucks of all types were built. A significant number were used for fire apparatus. Just about every manufacturer active during that time built on the Ford C. Many Ford C apparatus remain active in the fire service despite the fact that the youngest of these are in their third decade of service. The Sanford Fire Apparatus Corporation of Syracuse, New York, entered the fire apparatus business in early 1920's. Sanford was a popular choice for fire departments in the Northeast who wanted a well-built fire engine but had a limited budget. Sanford starting building ladder trucks in the 1970's using ladders built by Grove Manufacturing of Shady Grove, Pennsylvania. Sanford went out of business in 1990. BFD552@gmail.com
