Gradall Fire Suppression Machines Available With Reach Choices Up To 20 Metres/70 Feet

Gradall Industries, Inc., has introduced two emergency response vehicles able to reach through windows and walls or breakthrough roofs to launch a technical assault on dangerous structure fires.

Gradall FA Systems use a rugged telescoping, tilting boom and a patented 5th Man fire head to break through wood, masonry, concrete and other building materials and then drown dangerous fires using water or foam.

The Gradall firefighting units are available with a variety of truck undercarriages, enabling these state-of-the-art units to quickly get to fire sites. Rapid deployment outriggers, also part of the FA System, telescope out and down and can be positioned all at once or independently, providing short jacking capabilities while enhancing stability.

Two reach options are available:

The FA 70 can reach out 20 meters (70 feet), accessing roofs on six- or seven-story buildings.

The FA 50 reach is 15 meters (50 feet), attacking fires in buildings up to five stories in height.

Using a wireless remote control device from over 90 meters (300 feet) away, a firefighter can telescope the boom and tilt the stainless steel 5th Man nozzle 220 degrees, directing 52 aqua-jet nozzles to dispense a massive broken stream curtain of water, or Class A or B foam for chemical fires.
