A 5,000-gpm flow through an aerial waterway is now possible with the Ferrara Fire Apparatus SKYFLOW. Being introduced at FDIC International 2016, the new midmount aerial fire truck is built on a Ferrara Inferno chassis and features a 600-hp Cummins ISX15 engine.
The aerial comprises four sections and features a brand new structure to accommodate the high flows possible through its hydraulically controlled monitor.
According to Paul Christiansen, aerial sales manager at Ferrara, the pump setup is the same US Fire Pumps arrangement as previous Inundator pumper rigs.
Primarily designed for industrial fires, the aerial also features a 1,250-pound dry tip load. There are two 8-inch rear intakes and six-inch discharges. Wheelbase on the aerial is 258 inches, and its overall length is 51 feet 7 inches.
Also on display is an MVP pumper that features a variety of Hale/Class 1 electronic controls, helping to keep the pump panel extremely narrow.
