Truck Co. 2 recently took delivery of this 2014 Kenworth T880 6x6/Seagrave 105' Apollo II rear-mount platform quint. T-2 has a 1250 GPM Hale pump pre-piped to the monitor in the bucket. Because of its response area, Truck 2 features a low-profile 6x6 (AWD) chassis to get to areas other Truck Co.s cannot. This makes the Truck an asset to not only the community it serves, but also our Mutual Aid partners.
Truck 2 features Federal Signal lighting, PA300 siren, and Q2B siren.

This build was fun for me, as I got to try out a new cab design that I'd never designed or tried out previously. I personally like the results, and to think I almost went with a custom chassis midmount for this one!
Great looking unit, however, I will be the thorn and say that I don't believe a tower ladder on a commercial is possible due to the weights. Tower ladders are much heavier than a stick. But hey, its LEGO, who cares!
5/5 Magnificent rig James. I love every detail of this rig> The Bradly Prosperity VFD in Raleigh Co. WV has an 85 foot Simon Snorkle on a Ford LN-9000 chassis. When they got it back in 1992-93 It caused quite a commotion whenever they bought it to parades or musters. It was always a first place winner just like this one is. Keep up the good work.
Thanks guys! It's true, commercial aerials are few and far between. The original Truck 2 was the first commercial aerial (excluding Squrts, water towers, Telesquirts etc) in the LFC, so I decided to continue the legacy as (maybe still) the only commercial aerial.
