The LFC Blog Walk-around
Here we showcase some of the LFC's most recent built Lego fire related MOCs!
Feuerwehr Farnheim is one of the most unique fire departments in the Lego Fire Community, due to the scale as well as the functionality/playability of the rigs. Most recently, they have placed in service this special ladder truck especially made for small streets and backyards where regular turntable ladders cannot fit.
About the Alley cat:
The Alley cat is special ladder truck that is in service at the Copenhagen and Stockholm fire departments. This device is used in some areas which cannot handle the weight of a traditional turntable ladder. This Bob-cat, or alley-cat (as referred to by our friends from Europe), is therefore an excellent alternative. This particular unit is stored on a tilt-deck and unloaded as close to the fire as possible since the maximum speed is roughly 6 miles per hour (~10 kilometers/hour). An interesting feature is that the device can move with the ladder raised to 50 degrees, making it more maneuverable. This motorized aerial device can reach 65 feet (20 meters) in the air.
