Whether it be a fire engine, rescue vehicle or turntable ladder – MAN fire service and emergency services vehicles are delivered ex works with the necessary equipment.
Thanks to their robust construction, MAN emergency services trucks are able to handle tough jobs with ease. The full-LED headlights with protective guards are particularly durable and resistant.
Access to the cab and the crew cab is comfortable and safe thanks to wide, anti-slip steps. The driver-oriented cockpit impresses with its clarity, intuitive instruments and an improved field of vision. The steering wheel has a considerable adjustment range. It can easily be adjusted to suit the driver’s physique, thus maintaining driving comfort even in case of alternating drivers. On the inside of the driver’s door, the EasyControl panel is located, which can also be used to control important vehicle functions from the outside.
MAN emergency services vehicles for fire brigades, disaster relief teams and other task forces can be equipped ex works with spacious cab solutions, such as a crew cab. They offer space for up to six emergency operatives including their equipment. An optional extension with additional storage space for protective equipment and tools is available as well.
MAN emergency services vehicles can be equipped with powerful PTOs, so that no time-consuming and costly subsequent conversions will be necessary. A mechanical drive source independent of the clutch provides the necessary power for pumps, winches, alternators and turntable ladders. Analogue and digital radio transmission equipment is also on board.
MAN engines and gear functions provide the necessary performance and traction.
To ensure that you arrive quickly and reliably at the deployment site, MAN fire service and rescue vehicles are equipped with powerful lightweight design engines. The efficient engines with quick start function impress with an optimal payload ratio and reach maximum torque even at low speeds.
Moreover, rescue vehicles are also equipped with an engine known as regulatory engine, which ensures constant performance even during long missions and in the event of malfunctions in the exhaust gas treatment system.
The semi-automatic MAN TipMatic EMERGENCY gearbox cuts down shifting times and ensures better acceleration with an increased gear-shifting speed. Downshifts during braking also provide power when accelerating again.
Thanks to permanent or switchable all-wheel drive, the emergency services vehicles have sufficient traction and grip on poor road conditions or unsurfaced roads. MAN HydroDrive is a switchable hydrostatic front-wheel drive which can be activated for a short time with increased traction requirements.
