An impressive look WRL. What do they do with the former Volvo&Dennis WRL? Do you have the picture?

This is not a WrL. It is a Pump or WrT.

Impressive but not as impressive as the old PE they had there when my dad was a Fireman there. Lovely old appliance the PE was.

If anyone wants one of these, Angoloco are pedaling some of these 2002 to 2004 ex LFB pumpers on their site. They seem to have a decent specification, at least on paper, but no CAFS.

They are also a lot better-looking in my humble opinion than the newest ones, with their tacked-on box-like crew cabs.

Anyone know where I could possibly get an operator's manual for one of these vehicles?
