A unique Aerialscope retired in 2012
It has been a while since we posted a Dirk Steinhard video.
"The Auckland Aerialscope is the only one ever to see service outside the continental United States and even then is quite unique as it is fitted with it’s own pump, a 6000 litres per minute Darley which supplies water to the basket monitors, pump outlets and hose reels. Most Aerialscopes built have relied on other fire appliances to supply water including all those supplied to the city of New York."
The aerialscope was replaced with a Bronto Type 6 Skylift F32 RLX aerial.
