Thibault aerial fire pumper truck with 105 ft extension ladder and basket. This truck has 2,500 hours on the Detroit diesel engine and 7,500 km on the chasse. The pumping capacity is over 1,000 gallons per minute.
This unit sold for over $1 million when new, and it is still in very good condition.
A boom lift that reaches 105 feet. rents for $2,000 plus per day (if you can find one), and this truck has several advantages over a conventional man lift or bucket truck.
1) it has a horizontal reach of 105 feet as well as vertical reach, while a conventional 105 ft boom lift would have only about 65 or 70 ft horizontal reach. This would allow you, for instance, to reach right over a neighbor's yard to reach a house that has no access from that side
2) the ladder is very substantial... almost 3 ft wide - with rubber covered rungs and heavy duty hand rails. This allows you to shut off the engine and climb up the ladder if you need to remain in one place for an extended time, to save fuel.
3) You don't need a heavy hauler with 40,000 pound trailer to move it from place to place. You can drive it to where you need to go.
4) The basket is similar to a conventional man lift basket, so you can move around from one side to the other (whereas a bucket truck with 2 baskets requires you to have one person in each basket)
Plus it can pump a staggering amount of water - has 6 inch inputs on both sides of the truck and both a high pressure water as well a foam spray nozzle under the basket.
Protect your community from fire by filling a B-train water tanker from a lake or river, and then tow it behind the pumper truck to put out a fire…
“The average fire truck holds 400 to 500 gallons of water…”
A water tanker B-Train can hold Thirty (30) TIMES as much water… around 122,000 pounds of water… which is over 15,000 gallons of water…
