Lee Wilson has posted photogs of Zebulon Ladder 95, a 1987 Grumman/KME 102-foot platform, 1500/200. which returned from the factory yesterday after undergoing a complete rebuild. Read this earlier posting for details on what was done.

Looks like it still has open jumpseats? If so, is this allowed since this was a refurb? I’m asking to see what standard that they go by, the orginial year of truck manufacture or refurb date? Thanks for the info!

The jumpseats have been replaced with compartments (somewhat visible in bottom photo). This was done due to the cost associated with enclosing them in, coupled with lots of bad stories about riding in them after enclosed. Most everything that was upgraded was done to meet the current standard (i.e. warning lights, ladder safety functions, platform railing/safety, etc.).

How many people does it ride due to the jumpseats being turned into compartments? I assume two (or three if it’s a bench seat)?

It rides three. the drivers seat, then bench seat holds two.

Does this truck respond mutual aid to the neighboring counties and communities outside of Wake County? And how often?

It has and will respond out of the county, but there have only been a few requests.
