Portland Fire & Rescue has received a new tillered rescue truck, believed to be the first tllered rescue with a crane ever made.
If anyone knows of another, please let us know.
Squad 1 is a Pierce Arrow XT model truck, similar to a tillered ladder truck, but a few feet shorter.
The crane is an IMT Model 30-217K8, built by Pierce's sister company, the Iowa Mold Tooling Co. At the maximum extension
of 69 feet it can lift 1435 pounds, but at the minimum extension it can lift 22,045 pounds.
Squad 1 is in the familiarization and training stage before going into service in the next few weeks. Mid-April?
