Quint According to Fire Department Aerial Apparatus, First Edition. Quints : Apparatus equipped with pumps, water tanks, ground ladders, and hose beds in addition to the aerial device.
How is L29 equipped? PUMP: TANK: LADDERS: 1500 GPM Waterous pump 200 gallon water tank 35’ Extension 24’ Extension 14’ Extension 16’ Roofer (qty: 2) 10’ Attic
Cont. HOSE BED: 5” LDH Total =860 ft 800’ of LDH supply 30’ pony at front LDH intake 30’ pony at Officers rear compartment 1 3/4” hose Total =800 ft 200’ Drivers preconnect (qty: 2) 150’ Apartment bundle (qty: 2) 100’ Rolled in crows nest
Cont. HOSE BED: 2 1/2” hose Total =330 ft 300’ of 2 ½” Reverse 30’ pony in Drivers jump seat AERIAL DEVICE: 105’ Hydraulic ladder Max horizontal length =100 ft Max weight rating at full horizontal extension = 450 lbs dry / 250 lbs wet
Cont. AERIAL DEVICE: 105’ Hydraulic ladder Max vertical height = Max weight rating at 70° to 75° = 500 lbs dry/ 500 lbs wet 106 ft
Overview 450 Hp Detroit Diesel Weight =33 tons 105’ Telescoping Aerial ladder Single chassis Triple axle Back-up 12 Vdc hydraulic pump Box type stabilizers
Key items to note Stabilizer Beam Control Drivers front & rear Officers front & rear Order of controllers In / Out are outside levers Up / Down are inside levers front –rear rear-front
Key items cont. Stabilizer Control Panel HI - IDLE Kicks up rpms for more power to hydraulic pump Makes Stabilizer or Aerial functions quicker
Key items cont. Stabilizer control panel AERIAL DIVERTER Switches hydraulic power between Stabilizers and Aerial device Should only be used with motor at idle Exception is when apparatus pump is operating
Key items cont. Stabilizer control panel EMERGENCY HYDRAULIC POWER Back up emergency pump Electric motor powered by 12 Vdc truck batteries Use switch and hydraulic valve at same time Use 1 min on 1 min off for proper cool down until aerial is bedded
Key items cont. Stabilizer control Panel STABILIZER NOT FULLY EXTENDED OVERRIDE Allows for short jacking Must have one side fully extended Takes 2 FF to operate Hold until aerial unbedded Operate over extended side only
Key items cont. Stabilizer control panel ROTATION LIMIT OVERRIDE Allows aerial to be rotated over short jacked side It is against dept PPG to operate over short jacked side. IT SAYS NEVER!
Key items cont. Stabilizer Control Panel INDICATOR LIGHTS
Aerial control pedestal Important switches Nozzle master Aerial remote master High idle Hydraulic emergency pwr
Aerial control pedestal Other items Nozzle controls Aerial controls Stability indicator Water flow indicator Other indicators System pressure gauge
Apparatus rear Level indicators Aerial waterway drain Emergency override switch Max front to rear deg° = Max side to side deg° = 6 ½ ° 5 ½ °
Officers side Hydraulic oil reservoir Primer fluid
Officers side cont. Oil and Trans. fluid Primer fluid
Pinnable waterway Two positions Fly- water tower operations Mid- rescue operations
Pinnable waterway cont. Always pinned in rescue position
Stabilizers Box style Must extend prior to putting down Must use pins Must use pads
