Now withdrawn, but not a bad thing, was a joke, took corners on blues at less than 20 mph and the pump that always went with it had to stop at traffic lights until it caught up ..... not ideal on a bluelight run is it ?

The Vario had a GVW of only 8 tons. If the brigade loaded this high cube body with anything heavier than feathers, it would have been seriously overloaded - and slow, and dangerous!

Not the van's fault. But overloading all kinds of vehicles is it seems not an uncommon problem with quite a few fire service organizations...
