TL23 for sure can’t hold a 95 footer… they can’t even make the turn out of the firehouse now without backing up
Its not only about being capable of making a turn out of quarters….the apparatus floor may not be able to support the additional weight of a 95’.

That's certainly true in some cases however as far as TL23 goes obviously weight isn't an issue because 44 states in quarters when relocating at that station.

The companies that had "problems" with 95fters. 95ft relocaters don't seem to have those problems. :unsure:

TL152 acting TL33 had to back up and they cut it pretty early but they had a sign across the street and the wall
Ha when I was in L131 we just received a Tower Ladder and a couple of ‘Senior/old’ Chauffeurs had a hard time without the Tiller. Backing in was the worst part! Back than there was a 4 story tenement across the street with its side wall facing quarters. After hitting it a few times because we needed the whole street a few bricks were knocked out and til they knocked the building down that was the spot where you put the front Jack ‘into’ to back into quarters. Better than paint or a sign.

They have yellow poles across the street now I believe
