The Prague Fire and Rescue Service’s Fassi F65B.0.24 active loader crane… And an aquatic surprise
Prague (Czech Republic) – On 16th September, a Fassi F65B.0.24 active loader crane installed on a Scania fire engine belonging to the Prague Fire and Rescue Service was spotted next to the Vltava River in Prague, across the water from Slavonic Island, home to the Žofín Palace. As chance would have it, floating nearby was the sculpture Octopus by artist Viktor Paluš, which is part of the city’s Sculpture Line festival, an open-air exhibition project which runs from 12th June until 30th September this year.
The crane was installed by Fassi’s Czech distributor, EverLift spol. s r.o. and is an ideal piece of equipment for the varied requirements of the emergency service sector. Whether it be for rescue missions, handling operations, setting up temporary shelters, securing vehicles and buildings or clearing debris, Fassi articulated cranes can be relied on in the most critical situations. This crane has a lifting capacity of 5.71 tm, a hydraulic reach 10.65 m and is fitted with Fassi’s new oil distributor.
