A new product now available from Total Mast Solutions is a compact high pressure pump fitted onto the rear load bay of a 4×4 pick-up truck. The truck is owned by Staffordshire Search and Rescue who recently bought two such units for use in moorland fire fighting, where large appliances cannot reach. Under the name of Fireco, over 10,000 of these pumps are in service across the world.
Also available is a new super strong field kit tripod. Compact when stowed but with an impressive 4.5m leg radius for optimum strength and stability, it can be easily deployed by two people and can support very large diameter masts, up to 340mmØ with retracted lengths between 1.8m to 4m. This is a huge leap forwards in mast development technology. The tripod’s ergonomic design incorporates two sets of strengthening triangulation leg retainers and all fixings and clamps have no loose components, avoiding loss or damage.
