Firefighting aerial ladder - a new mechanical model from the latest UGEARS truck collection. Everything is real with the model: an extendable 3-part aerial ladder that can also be converted into a crane. Fully extended, the length is approx. 70 cm.
The turntable ladder has several controls. The ladder is raised by pressing the lever several times. Use the handle to turn the ladder to the right or left. A special ratchet fixes the current position. You turn the valve in or out by turning the valve. A hook can be installed at the front to use the aerial ladder as a crane. As with the large prototypes, our UGEARS model also has a small ladder on the side. Here the firefighter can quickly get on the truck.This model is equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, which is driven by a cardan shaft and gears by a rubber motor. The transmission allows idle, forward or backward driving. You can let the model drive forwards and backwards, or simply switch to "idle" and admire the pistons moving very realistically under the bonnet. Open the cabin door and you will see a fully functional steering wheel, which transfers to the sprung front axle with the help of the handlebar. You will also find the accelerator pedal there.
The model is made entirely of wood materials and has been equipped with many realistic details and elements. It is very interesting to see how the whole mechanism moves and how the individual elements are driven.
The turntable ladder, like all other UGEARS models, is assembled without glue according to a color-illustrated and very detailed step-by-step guide. All components have already been cut out with a laser and are only removed from the panels. First, individual assemblies, such as the body, cardan shaft, wheel suspension, platform and ladder, are put together, and then combined in a finished model.
