86 Truck
« on: April 20, 2019, 11:03:09 PM »
I recently acquired an 86 Truck Front from 1967-1968 and was wondering what apparatus they had at the time. Going through the site I can only find their 1988 Mack 75 ft, with that said obviously they had at least one truck between then and when they were established in 1966. If any has info or pictures they would be greatly appreciated.

  Ladder 86 was organized on April 15, 1963. Not sure if they were assigned another rig before but the oldest I have on my listings is a 1955 FWD 75ft. stick (#385) that was originally assigned to L53 (City Island) until 1962 then was reassigned to L164 before going to L86 where it remained until L86 received their first Mack tower ladder, a 1971 Mack CF. ;)

First off, thank you for the date correction. With some snooping on the site, I came by this picture on http://nycfire.net/forums/index.php?topic=14180.885 of L164, but it looks like a Mack not a FWD.

Second source to confirm Gman's listing - Ladder 86 was assigned a 1955 FWD 75-foot wooden tiller aerial ladder.  Engine 166 went into service with a 1953 Ward LaFrance pumper.
