Fire ladders pdf
The M68L is the new flagship among the Magirus extra long ladders (XXL). With a working height of 68 meters, the tallest Magirus ladder not only offers tried and tested equipment, but with its new features, it proves once again that Magirus knows the needs of fire departments and systematically develops its products to meet those needs.
The M68L will be on display at Interschutz mounted on an Iveco Trakker AD340T45, 8x4x4. The chassis has a gross vehicle weight of 34 tons, engine power of 332 kW (450 hp) and meets the Euro 6 emissions standard.
The length of the ladder that the Zamora fire department uses as an essential vehicle for the development of rescue and rescue work in the capital prevents access in case of fire to homes whose height is above the seventh floor, the maximum height that reaches the mechanical traction device. The ladder, which will be fully repaired after being awarded by tender, reaches 30 meters in length at its maximum extension and once fully deployed.

It includes the means for determining whether ladders in use comply with the standard for continuous service. The title and criteria of the 2004 edition have been modified, in order to better reflect that this document is for application by the fire department after the ladders have been placed in service, in order to avoid confusion with NFPA 1931, which is a document for manufacturers.
