HP 78


hp78E-ONE’s HP 78 features a 825 lb tip load for increased rescue capability and additional reach of similar products in its class. The ToughTruss™ ladder design features extruded aluminum construction that exceeds NFPA’s 1901 requirements with a 2.5 to 1 structural safety factor. No other manufacturer consistently offers you this commitment to safety. In addition, the aluminum aerial will not rust, need painting, or require rung cover replacement, delivering lower life-cycle cost than steel aerials. With the combination of generous compartmentation, ground ladder storage, hosebed and tank size, the HP 78 outperforms, outmaneuvers and out-reaches the competition.
