Truck 10 is a Pierce 100 foot tower, stationed on Division Street just Northwest of the city center.

Although Chicago operates nearly 50 100 foot aerials, only around a dozen are equipped as tower ladders. None has a pump, but all of them carry extensive rescue equipment including hydraulic extrication tools.

There are also four 55 foot snorkels (two at O'Hare airport) and a reserve snorkel quint, which I believe is either 85 or 85 feet.
