Allison Transmission Showcases New Magirus Fire Truck at SICUR 2018
Allison Transmission recently showcased the new Magirus City fire truck during SICUR 2018, the International Security Safety and Fire Exhibition. Ideal for city use, the vehicle features a narrow wheelbase and slim body design combined with an Allison 3000 transmission for greater acceleration and maneuverability.
“The Magirus fire truck coupled with the Allison transmission make this a very complete vehicle with features and benefits similar to those of larger vehicles,” said Alejandro Martínez, Magirus sales director for Spain, Portugal and Latin America. “The difference is that this model facilitates access to narrow streets with tight turns, which would be impossible for larger vehicles.”
Based on an Iveco Eurocargo chassis 120E25 4x2, which is Euro 6c emissions-compliant, the compact vehicle features a double cab with sufficient space to carry five firefighters comfortably. Four seats are fitted with a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). The vehicle is also equipped a Magirus MPH230 pump, which guarantees flow rates of some 2,000 l/min at 10 bar and 250 l/min at 40 bar.
“The reliability of the Allison transmission provides added confidence to firefighting teams who can reach the scene of the fire quickly and safely,” said Trond Johansen, market development manager for Allison Transmission in Spain. “In emergency situations, both vehicle performance and acceleration are vital. Thanks to our Continuous Power Technology™, Allison transmissions ensure that the engine delivers power to the wheels smoothly and continuously for increased acceleration performance and shorter journey times.”
The combination of an Iveco 250 horsepower engine with the Allison transmission, including a hydraulic retarder for enhanced braking and reduced brake wear, ensures optimum drivability for emergency work.
“This type of transmission is a magnificent solution for emergency services because, besides affording maximum driving efficiency, it means that drivers do not have to concentrate on gear shifts and can focus all their attention on reaching the scene rapidly and safely,” said Martinez. “In addition, Allison automatic transmissions very rarely break down, so customers are fully confident as regards vehicle uptime.”
Half of the heavy-duty trucks on display at SICUR were fitted with Allison Automatics.
