Safety and Ease of Operation to Every Response
The 102' AerialCat™ platform offers the shortest wheelbases, overall lengths and lowest heights in the indutry. Recognized as the strongest ladders available, KME ladders also take smooth operation to a whole new level. Our motion control systems provide safer and easier controls than any truck ever built for the fire service.
Maximum Leveling Capability
Getting your AerialCat in operation is a simple, one-person process with our handheld outrigger controller featuring the automatic leveling system.
KME’s steel ladder has a lift geometry that allows you to go an unobstructed 248 degrees of rotation at 12 degrees below horizontal without any impact on platform capacities or while flowing water. That same design also allows you to set the platform on the ground with the ladder fully retracted at a mere 33’ from the apparatus. Need more? Our aerial will allow you to be 14’ below grade at 12 degrees below horizontal when fully extended.

KME’s platform features mitered corners allowing for easy positioning against the building, regardless of apparatus placement and an improved turning radius. The KME platform 22 cubic feet of working space, parapet roof ladder mount on each side and stoke basket mount on the front handrail assembly.
