A nice - and rather early - example of a standard Netherlands pump water tender, equipped with a power roof rack for the ground ladders and suction hoses.

Nine-man cab, 2100 liter tank and probably an 11, 12 or 14 meter ladder, plus scaling and roof ladders, all on a relatively short wheelbase 4X4 compact truck, with full-height side lockers and low-locker cover step access.

Some other countries' fire services might perhaps still find they have to learn a lot from what was already a standard design more than 12 years ago!
