The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

DL 22 Magirus Metz Dransfeld Germany
This turnable ladder from Metz, 22 meters, is built on a "Klöckner Humbold Deutz" (the original name of Magirus factory Ulm in this time) in the late 1940s or the early 1950s. Metz ladders and Metz bodywork with Magirus chassis ware very seldom in Germany and over the world, but some are documentated.
