4405 performs outstanding, as advertised: The check has been cut, and The Borough of Seaside Heights is now the official owner of a 2007 American LaFrance 100-foot ladder tower truck. Loyal readers will remember that the $790,000 truck has a 2,000 gallon per minute capacity, twice that of its predecessor, a 1989 88-foot ladder. After looking at many trucks, this model was purchased based on its modern conveniences, including an advanced leveling system to quickly adjust the multi-ton truck to unique angles to precisely deliver its powerful blast of water. When the truck was demonstrated by American LaFrance reps last week, word was that the vehicle was performing outstanding, and as advertised.
