1989 Maxim Tiller as CFD Ladder 3.
The last tractor-drawn aerial to see duty in Cambridge was also the last tiller built by Maxim Fire Apparatus. This 1989 F Contour model had a 100' aerial and was designed to serve the congested "Downtown" area, assigned to Ladder Co 3. Ironically, this neighborhood has become even more congested but the company runs a rear-mount aerial now. This truck later became Ladder 4 in North Cambridge before doing time as the CFD spare (Ladder 5). Once retired by CFD, the truck was acquired by Chelsea FD and later sold to the Revere FD. Both agencies used it as a spare. This classic truck was finally retired in 2019 after three decades of service. It was just sold by Revere to a private collector. Hopefully it will be restored to reflect its original assignment at Lafayette Square.
