In 2014, Magirus delivered five M42L turntable ladders to Hungarian fire departments. The high level of satisfaction with these turntable ladders led to a follow-up order for 15 single-extension units.
The first five turntable ladders of the complete order – which consists of twelve M32L-AS Magirus turntable ladders and three M42L-AS – were officially presented to the “National Directorate General for Disaster Management” (NDGDM) in Budapest. Károly Kontrát, representative of the Ministry of the Interior, and Tibor Tollár, NDGDM General Major, officially accepted the four M32L-AS turntable ladders built on Iveco EuroCargo chassis as well as one M42L-AS turntable ladder.
In the future, the turntable ladders with a working height of 32 metres will support fire departments in the Hungarian cities of Kisvárda, Dombóvár, Pétfürdo and Gyor during firefighting operations. The Magirus M42L-AS will be stationed in the city of Nyíregyháza, a town with 120,000 residents.
With this follow-up order, which will be complete in 2019, Magirus highlights its turntable ladder competence and position as the market leader in Hungary as well as northern and eastern Europe in general.
