In a few years our department is scheduled to replace its Mack 75' Baker Aerial. We would like to investigate the possibility of removing the aerial device and placing it on a new chassis (what I call a "rechassis"). We have several concerns of which include 1) has something like this been successfully done before, 2) will a vendor actually perform the work, and 3) how long our aerial will be out-of-service.
I'd appreciate any input you'd be willing to offer. Thanks.
