Good !

The 50 or 55 foot snorkel combined with a standard pump appliance was a short-lived idea.

I know of no fire service anywhere who replaced them with more of the same types of units.

They were heavy, relatively slow, had a high center of gravity, and had a quite restricted operating range. Like the more recently introduced and even bigger CARP appliances, they offered more compromises than practical usefulness.
