Can anybody tell me why Avon fit orange lights to the front of their appliances, this vehicle has them fitted below the blue lights. Thanks for sharing the photo Jon.

my oh my who was responsible for this ? wheels are tiny yet there is still a huge climb into the rear cab , it is awfull , i am glad I am almost retired if this is what they are issuing firefighters , dear oh dear

Are they the narrow chassis?

Added by Les Davis on 20 March 2013.
Hi Alan, Perhaps it's a good time for you to retire, a couple of really popular machines despite the small wheels, fast, good road holding, great in narrow streets and carry the same kit as their big brothers.
The amber lights on the front are additional indicators.

Thanks for the info on the amber lights Avonmouth.

Added by Paul Warnock on 20 March 2013.
Kinda agree with Alan , not an appliance that is very common and I know a few firefighters that dont like them , I agree they suit smaller roads but they dont carry as much as the scanias and the narrow chassis must mean body roll , but all in all if they suit the needs of the stations that run them then fine , its good that avonmouth defends his own but Alan is right about the looks and the height , steps look a bit high also , not one for the masses then!

Its fair to say that Avonmouth who is obviously from the area knows the machines and operators and is relaying feedback from those who use them

These trucks are coming very popular for rural stations we have 4 now in west sussex, see picture #27294. They're based at Selsey /East Witterings / Midhurst and Crawley.

Those 2 pumps are on the smaller TGL chassis rather than the normal TGM chassis because of its rural location.

Added by Lee on 28 April 2013.
i cant see that the 6 pumps in service of this type as stated make them the must have appliance of 2013 but if they are providing good service then great but volvo for instance do a chassis of this weight that has more acceptable looks , after all do not firefighters put credence on their appliances looking good and well turned out? sorry but I agree with the two guys above it is no oil painting!

Can anyone familiar with these appliances explain the function of the item on the roof immediately behind the crewcab?

Added by Rob Johnson on 29 April 2013.
Rob could be a folding search light unit. Merseyside have them in the same place.

Added by Dave Price on 29 April 2013.
they are folding search lights they carry rtc kit in all Avon pumps

Added by Lee2002 on 29 April 2013.
Yes, it is a folding, telescopic search light, same make and design as West Sussex pumps (amongst others) Also of interest in Avon, Temples new TL MAN TGM 18.340 Metz WX62 HRZ has arrived and was in the appliance bay today along with N601 LHT which is still on the run whilst training is undertaken, giving the appearance of a two TL station. The new TL is larger than the two delivered last year for Bath & Weston.

Added by Jon Godden on 29 April 2013.
The new Metz TL at Temple is the larger L32. Weston & Bath have the L27 with a shorter wheel base.
