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.

Malaysia - Morita Rear View

Morita Super Gyro on Isuzu Chassis. Right rear view.
Compare the controls to the Magirus in picture #1595.
The ladder operator stands unlike to Magirus.
According to the crew this system is easier to operate than the Magirus and easier to maintain. However the Moritas have a smaller basket and thus less useful for rescue work than the Magirus. Also the Moritas only have water pumps and montors - whilst the Magirus can pump foam and the montitor has greater range.
The Moritas are due for service life extension and upgrading next year.
