It's not only what they have inside, there's even more on top.
When particularly large amounts of extinguishing agents are needed, the water supply is poor or distances are great, it's time to call in the specialists: Tank pumpers that can carry large quantities of extinguishing agents and apply them forcefully where needed on the scene. Our fire-fighting giants carry up to 10,000 l water as well as a choice of foam, powder or CO2, all made possible by a special superstructure concept with external tanks positioned transverse to the rear axle(s). Having an enormous amount of strength is one thing; knowing how to apply it effectively is another. Magirus high-performance pumps, mechanical and electric proportioning systems and high-capacity monitors get the job done. And there's no need to fear these gentle giants: With the HMI pump control unit they're as easy to control as every other Magirus vehicle.
