Fire missions, rescue missions, work missions: the new L32A-XS 3.0 turntable ladder from the Dresden fire brigade is not only equipped for one, but for a wide variety of purposes. Compact dimensions, very good maneuverability and at the same time high performance - these are the characteristics of the XS turntable ladders Rosenbauer since their market launch a few years ago.
The concept of the turntable ladders with tilting jib was continuously developed by Rosenbauer. In the current 3.0 version, the vehicle impresses with its sophisticated technology, many possible uses, simple operation and extremely high safety standards.
Aluminum safety platform
The L32A-XS 3.0 for the Dresden fire brigade is built on a Scania chassis with a Euro VI engine and 280 hp. On top of this is an aluminum safety platform with integrated lighting, six equipment rooms and two additional storage compartments.
The maximum working height is 32 meters; the cage floor height when fully extended is 30.3 meters
The heart of every turntable ladder is of course the ladder set: In this case it consists of five parts including a tiltable cage arm, is controlled by a CAN bus system and is equipped with a 3D load measurement system so that all loads and forces acting on the ladder can be permanently monitored view has. The maximum working height is 32 meters; the cage floor height when fully extended is 30.3 meters.
Power supply system
The HR-500-MF rescue cage is the ideal tool for rescue operations of all kinds thanks to the removable multifunctional column, four entrances and stretcher mounts. For firefighting from the cage, it is also equipped with a RM8 water cannon with a capacity of up to 2,000 l / min.
In addition, a wide variety of electrical devices can be used in the rescue cage thanks to the power supply system (230 V / 400 V). A lifting eye with a lifting capacity of up to four tons is attached to the lower ladder for work or rescue operations, and a load of 600 kg can still be lifted and moved at the top of the ladder. The tilting jib of the L32A-XS 3.0 means that the range of applications for the turntable ladder is enormously expanded.
Main control station

For example, the rescue cage can also be perfectly placed on the side of the roof ridge facing away from the street, if necessary. And underground operations, in which the rescue cage is brought below the level of the vehicle, are also possible. In keeping with the Rosenbauer tradition, when designing and equipping the L32A-XS 3.0, care was taken to ensure that operation was simple, intuitive and safe. The M500 main control station is covered and equipped with an inclinable backrest in order to offer the operator a good view and appropriate comfort during longer-term operations.
In addition, one can fall back on various assistance systems that make operation significantly easier: the automatic return of the ladder set to the ladder rack, the automatic return function (ARF), the target memory system TMS, which enables the same rescue cage position to be controlled automatically and repeatedly or the vertical rescue system VRS, with which vertical movements of the ladder set are made much easier.
Raising rescue cage
For example, when one raises the rescue cage on a facade and bring it into position. The entire lighting of the L32A-XS 3.0 is made with LED technology and ensures a very good view and thus more safety when deployed in the dark.
There are also two powerful LED floodlights on the rescue cage, with which the area of use can be perfectly illuminated. In a nutshell: The L32A-XS 3.0 is an extremely well-equipped and versatile vehicle which, thanks to the multitude of possible uses, is an indispensable part of the Dresden fire brigade's fleet.
