London Bulk Water Carrier - DAF CF 3 Axle

picture #31096 commented that London Fire Brigade don't have any water carriers, they do (at least 5) but have never been able to put them 'on the run' due to problems with the vehicles !

Thanks for posting another view of LFBs BWCs. Picture 3395 is the other view. There were originally six bought in 2005, but one was written off after it overturned in a ditch. I see BWC2 and BWC5 in the picture, do you know which one turned over. In other words, which BWC wasn't there? Oh, and do you know how big the tanks are and what the pump capacity are?

not surprisingly one of these has ended up in Ireland - with Mayo Fire and Rescue Service. On Fire Ireland website. The agent was MPM.

Well we have one of these on the run at my RDS Station, not a bad bit of kit to be fair. 11000 kms in the clock

11000 km in thirteen years is pretty minimal!
