Requirements

  • A crane capable of lifting a load of minimal 5,000 KG (11,000 lbs)
  • Four ropes or chains with a length of minimal 6 meters (20 ft)

Considerations

  • The fire trainer is NOT built in a cargo container but in a cabin.
  • Due to the construction and design of the fire trainer cabin, handling with a spreader or a fork lift is strictly FORBIDDEN.
  • Make sure the twist locks on the truck are UNLOCKED before lifting the fire trainer.
  • For on- and offloading from a truck, the fire trainer is equipped with four LIFTING HOOKS.
  • Due to its construction, the fire trainer may only be lifted on these hooks with ropes/chains, or on a flatbed.
  • When the fire trainer is lifted to higher elevations than the truck, a flatbed shall be used.
  • The ropes/chains have to be provided by the crane operator and shall be fastened to the lifting hooks fitted at the top of the fire trainer.
