In Mecklenburg County, Cornelius Fire Dept recently put into service a used Seagrave TDA bought from a department in VA. Here is a link to the website: http://www.corneliusfd.org/apparatus_ite..
Haven’t seen it in action yet, but if I recall there hasn’t been a TDA in the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area since the old Charlotte Ladder 4 (the Ward LaFrance mentioned above) was retired sometime in the mid-80’s.

Don’t think it would qualify as a ‘tiller’ per se, but at one time Swansboro had a ‘ladder trailer’. I saw it once around the early to mid 80s sitting at their old station.
