Nice machine very similar to the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service machine, stationed at Barton-Upon Humber

A very impressive fire appliance. Some fire brigade in UK mount their WMU (which look like this one) on Volvo FL 2-axle chassis.

An airport in UK own the Scania HRU for hose laying activity.

What a great idea.
Have never seen a crew too enthused about recovering a great length of wet Large Diameter Hose by hand.
And in winter, another problem with it all freezing up solid - have to gather up in great awkward heaps on open truck bed [often a Volunteer's own transport]; then get it to Fire Hall to thaw, uncouple and drain, for restowing.
Australia's hot, dry, interior looks real good then.

Wayne, I don't quite understand how this thing works?

If you go to Angus Fire web site, look up Hi Volume hose and then Fetch system this will explain how it works.
