There is something truly classic about the Seagrave Ladders that Chicago Fire Department used in the 1990's. These trucks had clean, straight lines and a no-nonsense bold stance. Producing a replica of this beautiful rig that is small enough to take home, is a painstaking process. Over 18 months, each of the hundreds of intricately detailed parts are designed, cast or fabricated, painted, decorated, and trimmed...then organized in small bins, ready for assembly. There is no substitute for the laborious tasks that each of the 35 skilled men and women perform. It is a sight to see as each team member patiently adheres each part to another, consistently analyzing the end result. As you scroll down the assembly pictures, take notice of the parts on each workstation and you will gain a greater appreciation for the process. And don't forget to add this classic workhorse to your Chicago collection.
