HD - 100 Mid Mount

Ferrara's 100' mid mount platforms are designed and engineered for firefighter safety, as well as operations under extreme environments. Our standard 100' mid  mount platform models meet all the requirements of NFPA.

Ferrara's 100' mid mount  torque boxes are designed to accept a standard mid-ship pump. This allows departments to standardize pumps within their fleet and eliminates the need for specialty parts or unique pump designs.

The engineered strength of the aerial allows us to offer a 500 pound tip load, while flowing 1,500 GPM of water, at any angle or elevation. Not flowing water our tip load is 1,000 pounds. With an operational range of –12 degrees to +72 degrees, the 100' platform maintains a horizontal reach of 99' at zero degrees elevation and reaches a full vertical height of 100' at 72 degrees.

All aerials receive independent third party non-destructive testing, which include third party flow and structural inspection.

For Quint configurations multiple pump options are available from all of the major manufacturers ranging in capacities from 1,250 GPM to 2,250 GPM.

Water tanks from 200 to 300 gallons feature lifetime warranties and can be custom designed to meet your capacity requirements.

Aerial design

  • Five (5) section heavy duty ladder
  • 100' vertical reach at only 72 degree elevation
  • 99' horizontal reach
  • Each aerial is manufactured in accordance with NFPA pamphlet 1901.
  • A professional third party testing company performs a flow test and structural inspection on all aerials.
  • 2:1 Structural Safety Factor
  • 1.5:1 Stability Factor
  • Egress handrails stay with the aerial fly section to allow entrance into the platform when climbing at vertical angles.
  • All Ferrara aerials use a mil-spec internal corrosion coating on all structural members that are internally exposed to the atmosphere. This coating constitutes a 20-year internal corrosion warranty for the platforms aerial structure.
  • All platform waterways are hot-dipped galvanized, polished and then chrome plated for superior strength and durability. The waterway carries a 10-year warranty that includes the seals.
  • All platforms come standard with our interlock system to prevents the apparatus from
    • Being lowered into the cab and body, rotating to the short jack side
    • Rotating before the ladder is out of the cradle
    • Nesting the ladder before it is within the cradling area
    • Rotating the ladder to the short-jacked side of the apparatus
  • Custom painted aerial finish

Platform design

  • Platform leveling system uses a gravity level-sensing inclinometer, which reduces additional hydraulic lines needed for master/slave type systems. This system is based on gravity, which means the platform will remain level regardless if the apparatus is positioned on a severe grade.
  • Bi-Folding doors allow clear, 23.5" unobstructed entrance into and out of the platform
  • The platform basket is designed in four (4) modular sections, so if it is damaged, replacement is less costly.
  • Interior work area of Ferrara's mid-mount platforms is unmatched, with over 20 square feet of interior work area.
  • Monitors available in single or dual configuration: Elkhart, TFT or Akron.  Choose from electric and manual or two electric monitors.
  • Various 2-1/2" and 1-1/2" discharges available in all platforms
  • Additional hose or mask storage boxes available
  • Optional rappelling arm with stokes basket mount
  • Parapet ladder bracket is available, allowing firefighters to descend onto a parapet roof
  • Wide variety of120 volt and 12 volt lighting
  • Roof , attic ladder, axe, pike pole, Halligan mounts available
  • Additional 8" of stabilizer down stroke, for severe grade areas
  • Breathing air single available up to 6000 PSI in either ASME or DOT bottles
