Ferrara Body Options
Ferrara modular bodies are extremely versatile and extremely tough. Choose the compartment style you need,
from traditional pumper style to full height/full depth rescue style. Each modular body subframe consists of a
welded steel grid to support the weight of the body and the booster tank. Additionally, three cross members are full width of the body to brace the front and rear compartments.
All compartments are true sweep-out style and are reinforced underneath to carry the equipment you
need. Traditional pumper compartments or custom full height/full depth rescue style storage is available
on all modular bodies.

Extruded Aluminum Bodies
Built to last a lifetime, our extruded aluminum body is the strongest and most durable in the industry. Built from
6061-T6 and 6063-T6 aluminum alloys, each of our certified extrusions are custom designed for a specific use in the apparatus body.
Ferrara's extruded aluminum body features massive body corner extrusions, twin I-beam subframe with
heavy duty gussets and extruded compartment and hose bed framework. This innovative design offers an
unprecedented blend of durability and function. The subframe, compartment framework, hose bed, wheel
wells, beavertails, pump compartment and running board/tailboard assemblies all rely upon heavy duty
extruded aluminum shapes that have a particular design function, all of which give this body the superior
strength needed for any situation.
Sub frame is welded to 3/4" thick extruded aluminum frame rails and isolated from chassis frame by 1/2" thick
neoprene rubber extruded channel
Sturdy 5/8" diameter U-bolts secure the body to the frame
Double I-beams are reinforced with massive 2" x 4" extruded gussets
7/16" thick, 3" x 4" double I-beam cross members for extra support
Floor supports are 2" x 4" saddle
