Wherever fire fighting water is required, but no hydrants or other sources of water are to be found, the Buffalo Extreme is a solution. According to Rosenbauer (Austria), it is the world’s largest fire truck.
WHETHER IN DESERT REGIONS, VAST OIL REFINERIES, or on difficult terrain – the Super Heavy Duty Rescue Truck 33000 l tank brings enough water to the scene. Smaller fire fighting vehicles can be supplied and, in case of their failure, the Buffalo Extreme can also directly perform extinguishing tasks. It was designed for off-road terrain with large tires that can cross tundra.
As a control system, the Rosenbauer LCS 2.0 (Logic Control System) is employed, which is based on CAN technology. It includes a warning device, scene lighting, monitoring, engine data, chassis tank indicator, water tank indictor, pump, etc.
The extinguishing system consists of a N65 pressure pump with LCS 2.0 display control and central water axis. With the turret mounted on top of the vehicle, it is possible to put out fires directly. The vehicle can therefore be used to extinguish burning oil wells or to protect industrial facilities in the desert. The truck has an extinguishing output of 6500 l/min at 10 bar, a water/foam monitor with foam branch pipe and deflector, and roof monitor. With a total weight of 68 t and a maximum speed of 65 km/h, it is a vehicle made for extremes.
The truck has a pump compartment located below the 33 000 l tank and an aluminum body made from self-supporting bolted and glued aluminum sheet and profile construction. The vehicle body is made of the same material.
