It is not possible to fight forest fires using normal fire-fighting measures. The fire brigade needs support from the air for this. Just like the prototype, the SIKU fire-fighting aircraft can be filled with water. The signal yellow colour enables the fire crews on the ground to make out the fire-fighting aircraft even during thick smoke.
Helicopter for rescue missions and transport duties
The rumble of the rotors announces the arrival of the large rescue helicopter. The SAR helicopter is deployed under the most difficult conditions at sea and in the mountains. With cable winches and stretchers, the helpers are able to rescue accident victims and to attend to them medically in the helicopter. The helicopters are also deployed in crisis areas for the transport and lowering of heavy goods. For this, the side doors and the rear flap of the SIKU helicopter can be opened. The rear flap is so large that a SIKU vehicle can drive in and out.
Fast construction site team
The RAM 1500 is the monster of the American pick-up world. Eight cylinders and bursting with performance, so that on the construction site too it can be used as a tractor. The pick-up has a trailer with compressor attached to its drawhook. This allows the work gang to be on the spot quickly as a mobile construction site unit when the pneumatic hammer is needed to break open the road surface. Start the compressor, open up the compressor’s engine cover to allow cooling, put on your helmet and hearing protection – and get stuck into the work. The construction site team is easily visible from afar, thanks to the yellow/orange clothing. In addition, the construction site is protected by the barriers and beams included in the set.
JCB Agri wheeled loader 435S
Distributing the chopped maize in the silage clamp, filling the biogas plant with biomass, transporting hay for spreading in the barns: The JCB Agri wheeled loader 435S can be used in many ways on large farms. With its deep-tread tyres and the articulated joint, the wheeled loader can be used on all terrains and is very manoeuvrable. The loading arm can be raised and lowered and, thanks to the SIKU interchangeable system, it can also be combined with other front loader accessories.
