Telescopic Bobcat manipulator for the Polish fire brigade

Fire brigades all around the world are extending their range of options thanks to new technologies. Apart from the usual fire engines and fire extinguishers, they often also need the support of other types of technology. A typical example is the voluntary fire brigade – Ochotnicza Straż Pożarna (OSP) – from the town Gąbin in central Poland. Two years ago, they have invested into several interesting types of machines, apart from a 32 tonnes fire engine MAN TGS 41.460 with 8 x 8 drive and water tank of 11,000 litres of volume, they have also purchased a specially modified telescopic manipulator Bobcat T40.180SLP which has the lifting capacity of 4 tonnes, 4 x 4 drive, and a combustion motor of 100 horsepower.



Maximum lifting height is 17.5 metres which means that it can reach the roof of a normal five floors building. Thanks to this combination, OSP Gąbin ha probably the most unique carpark of fire equipment in Poland and they can work in extreme conditions.

OSP Gąbin has been working with the telescopic Bobcat manipulator for almost two years. During this time, the machine has been regularly used in many key firefighting actions, for example in the recovery of the debris of a small plane from a river. No other machine would be able to work on soft banks of the river.
