SMEAL is a premium fire tender brand owned by American firm, Spartan Motors.
Their model called 105 is a heavy-duty rear-mounted ladder fire tender that has several options for clients to fight both city fires as well as countryside fires. What is unique about this model is the operational ability to work on 12% uphill or downhill grade.
The metal scale model has the provision to extend the ladder (see image) and is an exact replica of the one that is in use by the Huntersville Fire Department (North Carolina). What is unique about this fire tender is the use of dual colour i.e. red and black. The black paint has been used as a symbolic colour to mourn those fire-fighters who have lost their lives fighting fires. This fire tender was delivered in 2013.
