FireBull

POWERBULLY & MAGIRUS

Launch of the world's first production-ready tracked fire engine

The Magirus FireBull combines efficient AirCore extinguishing technology, flexible superstructure options and the all-terrain PowerBully chassis from Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG to form a fully developed solution for use in vegetation fires.

The PowerBully 18 T 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. With an operating weight of around 57,320 lbs, the vehicle has sufficient spare capacity for individual needs and equipment. Where wheeled vehicles reach their limits, the caterpillar drive provides the necessary agility combined with a high level of driving comfort - regardless of the surface. Thanks to its high payload with a low ground pressure of only 0.300 kg/cm² - 30 times less ground pressure than a 6x6 truck - and a fording depth of 45 ft, it can be used not only in rough terrain but also in peat fires, ground fires, smouldering fires or in swampy areas.

With a climbing performance of 31°(60%) and a maximum inclination across the slope of up to 21°(40%), the FireBull transports water or the required logistics safely up and down slopes. In the FireBull AirCore version, in addition to a 10,000 litre extinguishing agent tank (9,000 litres of water, 1,000 litres of foam agent), the AirCore MFT35-H extinguishing turbine with a capacity of up to 3,500 litres per minute is also available. The water mist technology enables efficient firefighting and humidification of the vegetation as well as high penetration depths into the vegetation. The water can be discharged while driving in Pump & Roll mode. In addition to a C-connection at the front, self-protection nozzles and heat protection on the underbody ensure maximum safety for the crew. At the same time, the concept offers a wide range of options, such as larger tank volumes and turbine variants, in order to be optimally equipped for the respective conditions.
