Published:  28 September, 2011

Italian manufacturer of aerial truck mounted platforms, CTE Lift SpA is delivering its new B-FIRE 450 system mounted on a Tital firefighting vehicle. The telescopic boom is 45 metres high and can carry 450kg of payload in its basket, meaning it can carry four people carrying full PPE and additional equipment.

The new vehicle is the first of its kind in Uzbekistan, and will be used by the fire service in the capital, Tashkent.

CTE’s B-FIRE range consists of firefighting platforms and aerial ladders and ranges from 32m up to 55m in height.  Equipped with an emergency ladder and a water/foam line, this type of machine provides a combination between aerial platform, emergency ladder and fire prevention truck.

All models are equipped with a main jib (non-telescopic) and a second jib. The machine features a high operating speed, which is always needed by operators during emergency situations.
