Hino Australia will showcase its new 500 Series Standard Cab at this year’s Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) exhibition, held from 27-29 August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Displayed in the livery of the Victorian State Emergency Services (SES), the all-new 500 Series Standard Cab is based on the Automatic FD 1124 crew cab mode and features a ‘Heavy Rescue’ body fitted by SEM Fire and Rescue, a specialist in the design, manufacture and service of special purpose vehicles.
The body is an aluminium extrusion frame supported on a galvanised steel sub frame, with equipment lockers fitted with lockable aluminium roller shutters and a hydraulic rear lift-up door. It is also fitted with a front mounted electric winch, 4-metre pneumatic light mast, 8 kVA hydraulic, 240V generator and central locking.
The all-new medium duty 500 Series Standard Cab models feature a class-leading list of standard safety features including reverse camera, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), and a Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Pedestrian Detection (PD) and Safety Eye (SE).
The FD 1124 is powered by the Hino A05 turbo charged five-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine, which delivers superior torque, increased power and reduced fuel consumption, along with the cleanest exhaust emissions ever for a Hino truck in Australia. The engine also complies with Japan’s stringent post Post New Long Term (pPNLT) exhaust gas emissions standard, which is equivalent to the Euro 6 standard.
Also on display at the AFAC event is a Country Fire Authority (CFA) Medium Tanker built on a Hino 500 Series GT 4×4 1322 crew cab with a 2500 Series Allison automatic transmission.
Featuring a body again built by SEM Fire and Rescue – it has a galvanised steel tray & roll over frame, aluminium chequer plate work and platform flooring with aluminium tray lockers and panelling. The pump is a GAAM Mk300D and FireCo Ultra High Pressure (UHP) pump which is directly coupled to a HATZ diesel engine to produce a nominal capacity of 900 litres of water per minute at 700kPa and 25 litres per minute at 10,000kPa. It is also fitted with a Quenchmaster CF700CFA-24V Class “A” Foam Proportioning System
