The Magirus FireBull, shown recently at the PowerBully booth at Interschutz in Hanover, is on its way to the Brazilian state of Ceará.

The PowerBully 18T chassis with an engine output of 231 kW (305 hp) has a gross vehicle weight of 66,138 lbs and reaches a speed of around 6 mph. The transport of high volumes of extinguishing agent (9,000 litres of water, 1,000 litres of foam) with a minimum ground pressure of 0.300 kilograms per square centimetre at a permissible total weight of 30 tons is one of the central advantages in impassable and difficult-to-access terrain.

In the future, the FireBull will be used in the region around Porto do Pecém. In addition to being called out for use in vegetation fires or operations in the nearby reserve and protected area, the region has a large port, beaches and numerous large industrial operations ranging from recycling plants to steel production, some of which have difficult-to-access terrain.
