that is the way that the software engineers designed the product, and it can't be changed...

a couple more here and some info. this ground level ferno not FW I have labeled as a type c and #21. anyone knows what is correct please let me know the NOS #30 still have there tag on them but this set was made some time in the 80s. I have a pair of them still here. the other is kind of a comparison stack of 28 29 and 30. the add is from a 1977 mag. the letter is a response I had recived on an inquiry from them on the date of manufacture of the 28 ,29 cots. you can see now one really knows for sure the exact date of them. but with out all the safety locks one can say there are a mid 70s cot.

I just sold one of these, in orange, to someone in the south. Ferno, even with a picture, was unable to provide the model number.

This is a model 104, came with standard and six inch wheels. I have an orange one w/ 6" wheels, this is the 104-S Model. Didn't come with the mattress, though. I believe they're for pre-ems applications, such as plants, etc., places of industry. But with four wheel cups, I'm sure you could make the standard version fit on a bench seat or floor. The only issue, is that it's the Ferno Telescoping Stretcher... So, you'd have to either have multiple positions with wheel cups, or use it with one position only.

OK it was just a picture I got. thanks for pointing that out I see the telescoping with the canvas bed under the mattress now. I have a couple of pictures of a 107 and the 108 stretcher. the #9 is vary close to this set of them to. I also have one of the folding stretchers with the hoop feet in black here at the house. it should make a nice hanger in the 53. the nice part of this never ending stuff from FW is that somewhere out there someone has used them and knows what they are.

That almost looks like a Ferno, European model stretcher. I see even their modern stretchers have the pole handles.


The backrest support arms on the 104 were the absolute worst idea ever. The ones that keep popping up on ebay, prove my suspicion. They snap easily, therefore show welds. One of mine needs welded, the other has been done twice. Ferno's parts supplier never replied to my email about replacing them. I suspect it would be easier to have a metal fabricator make new ones out of steel, rather than a weak alloy.
