The Magirus turntable ladder M42L-AS with its new, patent pending Magirus single extension system enables to first extend only the top section of the ladder – only then all the other ladder sections. The improvement of weight distribution over the axles, the relief of rear axle and a basic reduction of the total weight of the vehicle ensure more payload for more technical fire-fighting equipment. The Magirus M42L-AS impresses with more outreach thanks to reduction of weight on ladder top. The operating height is 42 m as well as 4.7 m articulated arm without telescop. Some of the assets of this turntable ladder are the increased water output of up to 2,500 l thanks to new water piping as well as shorter set-up times. All benefits of the Magirus turntable ladder technology are also valid for this innovative ladder.
