Im going down again tomorrow(today oh god its late) and I'll take some more pictures. Bascially its a 38mm remote controlled monitor that protrudes from the front bullbar of the appliance. Interesting concept.

Took two of my kids down Saturday afternoon (age 12 and 15). They were hesitant before we arrived (put up with Dad's fascination again :-))

They were interested, esp in the bus that had been rolled and the broken cars being lifted. Saw one rescue to completion. They were fascinated that cutters can remove the roof and that vehicle glass can be smashed that easily.

I think it was worth it even if it was only to show my kids some reality rather than TV fantasy.

From the trade show they were interested in the casuality simulation dummy's and I was interested in some of the products.

Trucks on display were clean and tidy. Yes it would have been good to see inside the vehicles (for my own interest in what the BA seats are that keeps getting discussed).

The camera pictures on big screens helped show 'what was happening' and Brenton was doing some commentary on the PA.

Kept us interested for an hour, which is what I expected.

You would need a good water supply to squirt with that one. All gone in seconds

Monitor is perfect for short crewing and/or mounting an attack on running grassies from within the cab. No need to have crew on the back for the first knock down.

Very progressive excellent concept! Well done to those involved in this idea....Hard hitting and improves crew safety!

good to see people are sticking up for it...  :evil:

On a serious note, is it remote controlled from within the cabin like the airport fire trucks?

You would have to be pretty miserly with the water throught the monitor though. Drain the tank pretty damn quick.

It's a pity that they didn't use the bus that we rolled down the cliff. They decided to cut up a bus to look the same. The BA seats on the Woodville Skyjet were pretty viable through the windows, yet the cab was locked.

Im not so sure that the 38mm monitor would go through *that* much water. The branch is small and the plumbing on the smaller side as well...(pics coming)

i hear they are very expensive, so i doubt that it would be put on many trucks.

From the trade show they were interested in the casuality simulation dummy's and I was interested in some of the products.



man, I was up at STC this weekend and heard it took 3 BA course asistants to move one of the dummies, its that heavy.

and yes, that monitor looks like a penis.

haha, I didn't see a dummy over about 70-80kg... Poor BA assistants need some weight training  :wink:

na these are dummies they brought up from somewhere, probably the RCR comps. There was only one dummy that required 3 to move it, i think it was more like 95kg.
