The Ascendant heavy-duty ladder Tiller configuration offers numerous advantages and performance enhancements – resulting in longer reach both vertically and horizontally, higher tip loads, and higher flow ratings. You’ll have all the same performance characteristics of the Ascendant heavy-duty ladder that you’re accustomed to – 107′ vertical reach, 100′ horizontal reach, 750 lb tip load, 1,500 gpm flow without compromising on water capacity, performance, or safety. The improved set-up capabilities allow jack-knife angle up to 60°. We’ve also reduced the overall vehicle weight of this configuration by 4,000 lb – giving fire departments more flexibility with their configurations – whether it be lighter axle ratings, increased water capacity, or more storage options.
