Sponco Ladders?
Posted by: GSSign (
Date: December 15, 2008 03:06PM

I am wanting to purchase a truck with a 1988 55' Sponco Arial Ladder. The turck will be used for service and assist in installations.

I do not have experience with this type of ladder and am wanting to know if they are dependable and user friendly.

I have been in the buisness for a long time but have managed to get by with one installation truck to do all service and installs. We rent a man lift or crane when a second truck is mandatory.

I have searched the web for a couple of days with no results about Sponco Ladders. Aparently the company is out of buisness. The only results I get are past law suits.

Any information you can provide about this equipment, positive and negative, would be greatly appreciated.

I had a 55' Elliot and a Sponco at the same time. The only benefit I ever saw after having the Elliott was, a sponco is cheaper to by.

No lifting of any more than one man, ever.
Handling tools or equipment while walking the ladder, forget it!
Handling a sign in that suicide basket, very dangerous.
The cable/pulley system is primitive. Mine frequently snagged or came
