“Seagrave was contacted with primary interest in our tilt table,” said Chairman & CEO AJ Neiner. “Our tilt table is unique and one of the largest in the United States.” Seagrave’s indoor tilt table enables testing during any weather condition.

Seagrave designs, engineers and builds its own custom cab and chassis. All Seagrave custom cabs are built with a stainless steel roll cage construction with stainless steel walls, roof, floor and doors for extraordinary strength that results in the safest cab and chassis in the emergency vehicle industry.

“Fire fighters depend on our trucks to get them to and from an incident safely. Seagrave engineers and manufacturers each apparatus to the highest industry standards to assure everyone goes home,” Neiner concluded.

As standard, Seagrave offers a two year limited parts and labor warranty and a lifetime structural limited warranty inclusive of the crossmembers. All of Seagrave’s cabs and bodies manufactured of stainless steel carry a 15 year structural limited warranty.
