Does this have a HP or LP pump, or a combined HP/LP pump? How many LPM?

Added by David L on 19 October 2010.
My sources tell me that these Malaga pumpers have a Rosenbauer NH20 pump rated at 2000 LPM at 10AT, which can also deliver 250 LPM at 40AT. The unit has a single high pressure reel, so it probably never operates in high pressure mode above 150 LPM.

Rosenbauer has a plant in Spain, and most Spanish cities operate small pumpers like these. Larger trucks just cannot possibly get near many structures in older built-up areas. Usually they respond by themselves to minor incidents and along with a full sized pumper to structure fires.

Note the hook ladder. Just as in France, it quite often happens that in these congested old areas with narrow alleys, a hook ladder is the only choice if a person has to be rescued.
