The new F32TLK is built to race against time in narrow city streets and in complex firefighting scenes. It is faster, it reaches further than ever before, and yet it has a lighter construction to allow more capacity for your equipment. The F32TLK is available in various weight classes with optimised outreach.

With an outreach of over 25 metres, faster automatic jacking, a spacious rescue cage and various other beneficial features, the F32TLK allows you to serve your city in all circumstances. The compact design and short transportation length make the F32TLK a perfect fit for urban environments.

Faster and further, up and over obstacles

The new, improved F32TLK will get you to the rescue mission faster than ever. Automatic levelling and boom movements have been optimised to allow quick operation when seconds count and lives are at stake.

The overall construction of the new F32TLK is lighter to allow more capacity for your equipment. However, the outreach has not been compromised but further improved and is now 1.8m better than before – a little over 25 metres in the 18t weight class.

The F32TLK’s up-and-over capacity of 7.8 metres allows you to extinguish fires, rescue people, and support your team over roofs, avoiding possibly hazardous parapets and other obstacles. In addition, the below ground reach is a hefty 5.7 metres, allowing you to perform water rescues from rivers and bays.

There are plenty of options and modifications that help tailor the F32TLK to suit your rescue and firefighting scenarios. For example, the optional water spray curtain below the cage keeps operators safe from heat when operating over roofs, and a diver’s ladder assists in water rescue, while lighting and camera options keep you aware of the overall situation.
