Red Horse Posted April 13, 2018 Share Posted April 13, 2018 So here is one for you Fire Pro's. Last night a 13 year old Boston ladder truck (Has a basket-don't know what proper name for that is)- and it is working a 3 decker fire and a guy is in the basket and it is just above the flat roof. Suddenly the ladder collapses-looks like all the telescopic sections just like popped out of whatever the guides are that keep them tracking-or the hydraulic lift cylinders just lost all pressure and the ladder dropped. would the ladder sections when extended have enough strength to remain ridgid/intact with the upper most sections resting on the building.? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
