would think the weight of this type of vehicle would preclude it driving from Brooklyn into Manhattan not sure of restrictions on Brooklyn Williamsburg or Manhattan bridges plus I would think it cannot move at a speed like regular apparatus in responding. Maybe the smaller unit could work out but havenít heard of the job bringing in anything to test like this in a long time.

And take a look at the outriggers on those monsters.  Good luck on city streets.

We could have them but not have them respond as regular apparatus but special called when needed.

When I was still a chief in 2016, someone whom I believe was a commissioner of apparatus called me inquiring about our bronto itís features etc. The salesman that covers FDNY for Eone put him in touch with me. Didnít hear anything from the city after that one call.
