Sutphen SL 100 Aerial Ladder

If you want the strongest 100’ Aerial Ladder available, then you need a Sutphen SL 100.  The SL100, like all Sutphen Aerials, has a 500-lb. tip load while flowing 1000 GPM at any angle, at full extension. The extruded-aluminum tubular ladder is highly resistant to corrosion and has extraordinary strength and torsional rigidity, resulting in a 3:1 safety factor.

Designed with a 5-section ladder, short wheelbase, and shorter overall length, the SL100 provides extreme maneuverability and superior handling when compared to competitor products.

Sutphen’s proven mid-mount design provides superior weight distribution, extraordinary maneuverability, and easy access to the pumper-like hose bed as there are no hose chutes or turntable in the way.
