GIVING FIREFIGHTERS
THE TOOL THEY DESERVE

The Gradall FA System, integrated with established firefighting vehicles, is uniquely designed to enable firefighters to attack blazes more efficiently and safely.

Using the 5th Man fire head, the FA System quickly and productively vents roofs and sidewalls of burning structures, reaching into the heart of hazardous fires while reducing unnecessary personnel risks.

The boom’s 220-degree tilt capability, along with the strength of the piercing nozzle, can ventilate through solids such as brick and concrete structures.
