Appliance weight (stowage) restrictions
« on: December 31, 2009, 10:35:27 AM »
First up,I'll take this opportunity to wish all members a happy and safe New Year.

Now, can anyone confirm for me if a CFS regulation exists that states that the Max appliance weight must not exceed 80% of the vehicles GVM.If it does can you please fwd me a link or send me a copy.

Also, does anyone have copies of the "Infralog" news letter? I can only find links to the Sep & Oct 09 editions. Thanks.

Never seen it written down, but could see that there may be a restriction such as that put in place for the vehicle builder to achieve.

Be no good them supplying a vehicle at GVM so the vehicle would be overweight by the time 5 well-built fire fighters got on board, never mind any other equipment and necessary stuff (such as filling the fridge with bottles of water).

Have since found what I was looking for, the Standard Stowage lists have a disclaimer at the top of the page which states the fully equipped appliance including crew (@90kg ea) must not exceed 95% of the vehicles GVM.

Thanks to those who replied, much appreciated.
