HD - 100 Rear Mount

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

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 –8 degrees to +72 degrees, the 100' platform maintains a horizontal reach of 98' 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 Characteristics

  • Three (3) 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 Safety Factor

Platform Basket

  • 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, 24" unobstructed entrance into and out of the platform
  • The platform basket is designed in four (4) modular sections, so if the platform is damaged, replacement is less costly.
  • Interior work areas of Ferrara's rear mount platforms are unmatched, giving you over 21 square feet of interior work area.


  • Egress handrails travel with the aerial fly section to allow entrance into the platform when climbing at vertical angles.
  • All Ferrara platforms 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 an interlock system. This system prevents platform from being lowered into the cab and body by the operator.
