When someone asks me if LAD*x used to be a Tiller i smile & tell them EVERY LAD in NYC used to be a Tiller....as far as QNS as stated 143 is the only one left....the last 2 before now in QNS were 173 & 151 who kept them until at least the late'90s for 173 & into the 20s for 151...i remember when 151 was told they were getting a Tiller the CPT objected but was told by the bigwigs that if he protested or brought the complaint to the Community Board or other politicians that he would not have to worry about the issue because he would no longer be the CPT there anymore....as far as LAD*6 switching back & forth years ago i had posted on this before in another forum....the reason was that a previous CPT (a friend of mine) had wanted to get his newer FFs some experience outside of their normal response area so he requested & got a rearmount in order to be available to relocate to other rearmounts around the City.......years after that the subsequent CPT felt that a Tiller was much more advantageous for the response area.....it just so happened at that time late in '98 LAD*133 was being organized.....there were no acceptable rearmounts or tower ladders available at that time so LAD*6 was given a used Tiller & 133 was given 6s rearmount......my personal opinion is that ALL LADs (except TLs) should be Tillers.
