Magirus FireBull

magirus firebull

The Magirus FireBull is the world's first tracked firefighting vehicle ready for series production. Where wheeled vehicles reach their limits, the PowerBully 18T chassis provides the necessary off-road mobility - no matter what the surface. Thanks to its high payload with low ground pressure of just 0.300 kg/cm² (30 times less ground pressure than a 6x6 truck) and a fording depth of 1,400 mm, the Magirus FireBull is not only suitable for operations in rough terrain, but also for bog fires, earth fires, smoldering fires or in swampy areas.

the FireBull transports high payloads with minimal ground pressure over the most difficult terrain while ensuring maximum extinguishing effect and safety for the emergency services.

Magirus FireBull: X-Track
Gradability and stability
X-Track

The carrier's X-Track rubber track offers maximum climbing ability and high grip strength due to its special lug design. 

High performance turbine
AirCore MFT35-H

Extinguishing turbine with a capacity of up to 3,500 liters per minute. The water mist technology enables efficient fire fighting and moistening of vegetation and has a high penetration depth. The water can be discharged on the fly in pump & roll mode. In addition to a C-port at the front, self-protection nozzles and heat protection on the underbody ensure crew safety. At the same time, the concept offers a wide range of options, such as larger tank volumes and turbine variants, to be optimally equipped for the respective conditions.

10,000 l volume
AluFire3

The extinguishing agent tank holds a total of 10,000 l (9,000 l water, 1,000 l foam agent). With a pump capacity of 3,000 l/min at 10 bar, large quantities of water can thus be delivered in a targeted manner. In addition, the superstructure has continuous interior, ambient and roof lighting for safe and uniform illumination of the scene of operation.

Der Motor des kettengetriebenen Geräteträgers PowerBully 18T

Cummins B6.7 Engine

High torque at low engine speeds provides the necessary punch - while at the same time producing low noise and excellent fuel economy. The compact size of the Tier 4f/EU Stage V exhaust after treatment is key to maintaining a low vehicle profile.
