Econic

Fire & rescue

Takes your crew quickly to the scene. Not to the limit.

When the fire bell rings, every second counts. That's why every single movement of your crew has to be spot-on. The Econic makes sure that no precious time is lost. Just two small steps make for easy entering and exiting of the cab. The Allison automatic transmission saves time shifting and offers utmost driving comfort. When manoeuvring through lively city traffic and streets full of parked cars, the driver's low seating position and all-round glazing mean that they constantly have a great overview of the situation at hand. This ensures the greatest possible level of safety and speed when things start heating up.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Even passages and tunnels with low headroom are mastered by the Econic with ease in conjunction with the low cab height variant. Despite its dimensions, it offers plenty of space for high bodies
  • The low entry and wide-opening doors allow teams to gain access and leave the vehicle rapidly

With a great range of equipment and the bodybuilder-friendly low frame concept, the Econic offers a comprehensive scope of possible operations: for example as a base vehicle for turntable ladders, aerial rescue platforms and water tenders. The vehicle has space to house up to four crew members. Even in conjunction with high bodies, bridges and passageways are no obstacle for the Econic equipped with the low cab variant.
