Re: Fire Truck Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The governing load may not be your fire engine pumper truck full of water
(which is typically a little bit over HS20-44 loads, but it may be your
garbage truck with its loader and recycling compartments.  If you're trying to
accommodate outrigger pads for the ladder, then you should consult your local
fire company.

I am looking for generalized design information on fire truck loads.  Are 
the fire trucks axle loads limited to AASHTO HS20-44 or is there other axle 
and lane loading criteria?
