That video looks like this would just a good case to play with the snorkel.  If it had been a real active fire scene they wind up in room in front of the building to get the snorkel into position.  The fire was almost out before they even set it up.

Has anybody heard how they are liking these units?  Since they are the 1st units built by his company with this design I'm sure they're having some growing pains.  I remember initially they had some problems with that being able to rotate through certain positions because of interferences with the top compartments on the trucks.
