Inspired by the NSW RFS equivalent, the CFA has two new “Ultra Heavy Tanker’s” out and doing the rounds in the field. This vehicle has a 9,000-litre water tank with a 1,000lpm pump.
Weight: 22.5 tonnes,
Length: 8.5 meters
Chassis: 6×4 single cab Hino FM2630, 3 seats
Monitor: Front mounted 450lpm, operated from within the cabin
There are several interesting features here, particularly the pull over shelter for the rear crew area.
Thanks to Russell Perry for the shots!
