Fire and recovery vehicle manufacturer Rosenbauer has launched a new version of the B34 truck mounted platform, the B34 2.0.
Mounted on an 18 tonne two axle Mercedes Benz Econic chassis, the B34 2.0 features a high strength three section telescopic boom topped by a long, single section articulating jib. It offers a working height of 34 metres, an outreach of 25 metres, and a maximum platform capacity of 500kg. A telescopic ladder runs alongside the boom and jib, priding an alternative way to reach or descend from the platform.
The new model is also fitted with basic extinguishing equipment, consisting of a telescopic water riser and a monitor situated at the front of the basket. The unit can also be equipped with a pump and take for front line firefighting. Standard features include stepless available outrigger set up with automatic monitoring and working envelope control, LED technology for all lighting, lifting eyes on the boom with a capacity of two tonnes for emergency crane work and automated return to stowed/transport position function.
