THE HRS'1 overseas order for Merryweather's latest turntable ladder equipment, the XRL 30, has come front Japanese fire engine builder Nihon Kikai Kogyo, or the Tokyo fire brigade.
The XRL 30 departs from traditional design by using an unusual skid-mounted assembly which carries the ladder stack, turret assembly, power pack, stabilising jacks and forward rest gantry as one selfcontained unit.
Both the turntable and skid assembly arc produced as a complete factory-built system, pre-tested and ready for mounting on any suitable chassis from 12.5-tonne GVW upwards.
The operating console has full microprocessor, is selfdiagnostic and has a liquid crystal display which shows full extension and true angle. Two levers control the ladder movement.
