OCALA, FL—REV Group (NYSE: REVG), a $2+ billion manufacturer of specialty vehicle brands and leading provider of parts and services, is pleased to announce E-ONE’s release of the HR 100 aluminum aerial ladder.
The new HR 100 aerial ladder offers increased firefighting capabilities for E-ONE’s newest fire apparatus, the single-rear-axle Metro 100 Quint, released earlier this year. This added performance includes a waterway piped to the tip, an increased tip load rating and an extended range of motion.
The new extruded aluminum HR 100 ladder’s top features include:
- 500 lb. tip load rating, wet or dry
- Waterway to tip with option for extended monitor travel range
- 2.5 to 1 structural safety factor, exceeding NFPA minimum requirements by 25 percent
- Reach of 100’ vertically and 92’ horizontally
- 75 lb. equipment allowance at tip
- Direct hydraulic aerial controls or the new E-ONE Advanced Aerial Control System
The HR 100 ladder also uses the revolutionary E-ONE crisscross under-slung outrigger system with a jack spread of only 11 feet. As the E-ONE saying goes, “If you can open the cab doors, you can set the jacks!” This is invaluable for fire departments serving congested areas.
With the -6- to 81-degree range of motion, the HR 100 ladder extends to reach low angles, making it an even greater asset for today’s fire departments. Orders for the new HR 100 ladder on the Metro 100 Quint have been placed by the Village of Mt. Pleasant in Wisconsin, Homeville Fire Department in Pennsylvania, and Squamish Fire Rescue in British Columbia, Canada.
“The new HR 100 aerial ladder provides enhanced capabilities to the extremely versatile Metro 100 Quint, introduced earlier this year at FDIC,” said Joe Hedges, E-ONE’s Aerial Product Manager.
