Better Performance Through Better Ideas

KME’s Storefront Blitz™ feature allows for a first-floor interior attack with the aerial device all while flowing 1500gpm. The stainless steel bolt-on egress is designed to allow the monitor to travel up to 30 degrees above horizontal along with the extended monitor travel, the aerial is capable of going 8 degrees below horizontal, giving the fire department the flexibility to get the water where it is needed. In addition, special attention was also given to the height and width of the ladder section dimensions. With the deepest and widest fly section dimensions you can climb with confidence.

Ease of Maintenance

Maintenance is a vital component of keeping an aerial device in service. A review of many of the details of the aerials show particular attention to the ease of service of critical components if the need should ever arise. The wear pads are easily adjustable, removable and simple to lubricate. All sheave wheels are composite materials and require no lubrication, and the shafts are high-wear stainless steel material. KME is the only manufacturer to offer an adjustable swing drive so the aerial rotation is always smooth regardless of apparatus age. 

Higher Tip Loads and Shorter Outrigger Stance

Leaving nothing to chance, KME aerials are engineered to carry the highest tip loads in the industry while being subjected to winds of 50 miles per hour along with a 1/4” of ice build upon the entire aerial structure. KME aerial designs are independent third-party P.E. certified. Aerial configurations are available with 750 lb. tip loads with outrigger stances as tight as 14’ center to center, so if you can open the cab doors, you can fully operate the aerial.
