FDNY - TDA_Truck No. 6:

Just like 'threading a big needle'. No messing around: pulling forward, backing up, pulling forward...[all that screwing around] on a narrow congested street in Chinatown..."The BIG APPLE"..... :)

FDNY, "ya gotta just love 'em...that's all"!! :)

This is a video showing Winter Park, FL 2012 Pierce 100ft Tractor Drawn Aerial (Tiller Truck) doing a U-turn on the front ramp of the Firehouse. The video demonstrates the amazing maneuverability and turning radius of the rig.

In 1985 Buckeye53 and I visited Auburn, Alabama. We wanted to photograph their IH/Pirsch TDA behind the station. The crew pulled out of the firehouse, made a U-turn on the ramp, drove back through the station and exited through the rear door!
