New Zealand Seagrave - UT8330

This 1960 tillered Seagrave was operated by Los Angeles City Fire Department. It was donated to New Zealand and spent time at MOTAT museum. It has for many years participated in charity events and was photographed during the 2016 Variety Club Bash.

David:

Quite a few US fire department have switched to rear mount tandem axle ladders and towers these days, as well as aerial platforms.

But LA continues to run tiller aerials, as do San Francisco and some other large city departments.

FDNY has a few - I think there are around eight - at stations which have particularly congested streets in their response areas, because they are so much more maneuverable than their "straight sticks"...
