Sutphen SP 70 Aerial Platform

What if your first out engine had all the capabilities of a platform?  The Sutphen SP70 Aerial Platform makes that a reality.  The SP 70 combines the best of our mid-mounted, Huck bolted, aluminum aerial construction, with the custom craftsmanship of our pumper line to give you one of the most versatile Aerial Products on the market.

With a short wheelbase and short overall length, the truck is easy to maneuver through tight streets and subdivisions. The compartments are large, full depth, and offer as much storage as a rescue pumper.  The SP 70 will carry up to 500 gallons of water, and a full NFPA Quint compliment of ladders.  All of these features combined with the signature Sutphen mid-mount aerial design and boom strength result in an Aerial Platform that truly drives and operates like a pumper.

There’s Nothing Like A Sutphen, and we’re sure you won’t find anything like our SP 70 Aerial Platform.  Explore our features for more details.
