A rapid and strong firefighting vehicle, totally independent from continuous water supply, paved roads and the prevailing infrastructure which normally determines the scene for an effective fire fighting operation: The IFEX FireHunter has been developed for the special requirements of wildland and forest fires and since has proven how effective it is fighting urban and industrial fires, too.
With comparatively small amounts of water the high performance Dual Intruder cannons generate the impact to control or extinguish even large fires. So the IFEX FireHunter presents the ultimate solution for performing a fast and effective initial attack on structural, industrial, forest and wildland fires.
The IFEX FireHunter is based upon the Hummer all terrain vehicle; the legendary American all-purpose-truck which has the necessary power and mobility to ensure top performance under all circumstances. The Dual Intruder impulse cannons are mounted on top of the Hummer together with a 1000 liter water tank, a water pump and air cylinders. Additionally, two 1 liter impulse guns on 55 meter coaxial hoses are available for the firefighter's targeted attacks as on car fires or developing wildland fires.
The IFEX Dual Intruder cannons consist of two 12 liter impulse cannons connected in parallel, thus allowing for a rapid shooting sequence: while one cannon is being charged, the other is ready to shoot.
The cannons are built coaxially - the water chamber with a shooting capacity of 12 liters is located inside the power chamber - and are provided with a pan and tilt mechanism for precise shooting in all directions.
The shooting and refilling is operated directly from the cannon handle bar; a remote control release mechanism is optional.
