Magirus M68L main control stand

The main control stand: Where ergonomics meets design

A wide access and the ergonomic protection bar offer more safety when entering the main control stand. The heated seating area is spacious and allows crews to sit comfortably in firefighting gear. The angle of seat inclination is automatically set depending on the ladder angle while individual adjustments can be made at any time. The colour display swivels into its working position at the touch of a button and can be easily operated with one hand.

Magirus RE300 rescue lift

For demanding tasks: The RE300 rescue lift

The rescue lift for Magirus turntable ladders was redeveloped for even better performance. It has a load capacity of 300 kg or 3 persons plus additional load. The rescue lift goes from the ladder top completely to the floor of the vehicle parking area. This guarantees simpler and faster exits directly on safe ground. The lift ride is automatically controlled while the speed can be set individually. Due to the simplified crossover function, the lift provides invaluable help when crews must be transported from the ground to the top and thus to the deployment site.
