Reg. # 7-1-229
Perhaps one of the nicest 900 series ladders in existence, has just been retired after 50 years of service.  Built as an 85 foot 1000 GPM quint for Wilson Borough, Pa.  The truck was repowered in the 1980s with a 6-92 Detroit/ Allison.  In 1993 the truck was returned to ALF Dunmore, PA  and was rebuilt with a new 100 foot ladder, Hydraulic Century style outriggers, stainless steel cabinets, and Imron paint.  This may have been the last 100 foot ladder built by Kersey ALF, and it was the last  rebuild at Dunmore, PA. before the facility was closed, and they did a very nice job!  All records and documentation included, 700′ 3″ hose, 600′ 21/2″hose, 200′ 11/2″ hose, aluminum ground ladders included.  Asking price $5500.  For information 231-499-6371 or email
