BX13LHH - A very small fire engine....

Talking of the small appliances used in Japan, the U.K. can go even smaller. This appliance photographed at Rochdale Fire Station and Museum open day, 1st September 2013.

I know nothing of this Greater Manchester FRS appliance except that it's for 'difficult terrain'.

A modern version of the Haflinger picture #35919?

Its a JCB utility. Built in China under licence. Usually a small petrol engine in 2x4 or 4x4 with a maximum road speed of around thirty mph. I would imagine this is towed by trailer to a scene then unloaded. A novel idea though I cannot envisage a huge payload, they struggle with heavy loads.
We see lots out in the sticks, usually as shoot or farm vehicles by JD, Kubota and quite a few other makers.
Thanks for the picture Stephen, it brought a smile to my face.

Very interesting little appliance, I wonder if it is with GMFRS on trial for use on moorland fires? I cannot see it replacing the Pinzgauer and they have a few Nissan 4x4's for off road access which I presume will be used to tow the trailer carrying this.

Yes Mick, I now remember a GMFRS official saying that it would be used for moorland fires.

Regards,

Stephen.
