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.

Whatever you need: It's all there.

  • Magirus CaddiCAFS

    Magirus CaddiCAFS

    The Magirus CaddiCAFS compressed air foam system is a highly efficient yet extremely easy-to-operate extinguishing system. It combines the benefits of the high-performance Magirus centrifugal pump, the exact regulation of the CaddiSYS pressure foam proportioning system and high-energy compressed air.

    It can be configured for one-touch operation to automatically activate the following procedures:

    • Starting the vehicle engine
    • Engaging the P.T.O.
    • Bringing the pump to optimum output pressure
    • Activating the pressure foam proportioning system , which then mixes at the optimal proportioning rate
    • Compressor introduces compressed air into the water/foam compound flow
    • Compressed air foam is emitted

    Using the system as a pure pressure foam-proportioning system (without compressed air) is just as easy as a switchover between wet and dry foam at the push of a button.

    Your security:

    • Maximal reliability: In case of a compressed-air failure, the foam proportioning remains active; in case of a proportioning failure, the water stream is transported to the nozzle without obstruction: One-touch operation
    • Compressed air components are not activated until the foam compound is proportioned
    • Compressor and pump temperatures are monitored
    • System is not disturbed by wastewater
    • Optimum system cooling using water/oil heat exchanger; Made with reliable, inspected standard industrial components
    • Reliability through CAN-bus control
    • Protection against accidental selection of dry instead of wet foam
  • Cab


    Ready, Set – Go.

    How efficiently and safely an operation runs isn't decided when you arrive at the scene of action, but on your way there.
