Tillers are iconic to the North American fire service, however they mean business.

Rosenbauer’s tiller program offers multiple body construction choices, tillerman cab styles and corrosion resistance coatings for the aerial device.


Tractor drawn aerials are one of the most unique and versatile fire apparatus in the national fire service. These apparatus have a long history, dating back to the 1800s and are recognized as the most famous piece of fire machinery when people think of the iconic firetruck.
