Efficient Technology. The new vehicle series from Rosenbauer.

Trusted firefighting technology packaged in a new, highly efficient vehicle series. The new Efficient Technology vehicles – simply called ET – are fully deserving of their name. Different chassis, different equipment configurations, individually adapted to the requirements of fire departments all over the world. And all in the usual perfect Rosenbauer quality paired with simple operation and high user-friendliness.


The ET was primarily conceived for use in the municipal area, and thanks to the many configurations and equipment variations can cover many different areas and usage purposes. Fire departments have different types of chassis, bodies, pumps and proportioning systems available to choose from in order to optimally adapt their ET to the usage area. The proven lightweight construction, the equipment with high quality Rosenbauer firefighting equipment and simple operation all come together. With the ET, Rosenbauer has developed a new series which provides an interesting option for fire departments around the world thanks to the high degree of individualisation and the great efficiency.

Proven construction on the desired chassis

The ET can be built on all current chassis from twelve to 20 tonnes and with different wheelbases. In the same way the original cab – as single cab or with crew cab – from the manufacturer can be used. The engine and drive can naturally also be individually selected. If all-terrain access is required, an all-wheel drive engine and larger wheels can be used.

For over 20 years the body has been built in proven aluminium lightweight construction. The laser cut and angled aluminium sheets are screwed to the high-strength superstructures, which are light, durable and corrosion-resistant. For the full height lockers, three varieties are available to choose from: with full height locker and full height locker flaps, with full height locker and roller shutters or without full height locker. The ET is extremely flexible in terms of equipment: the sophisticated and practical COMFORT stowage system can be quickly and individually adapted to the usage requirements. Safe storage, simple orientation and ergonomic removal are other great strengths of the proven stowage system.

Rosenbauer firefighting equipment at the heart of the ET

For the built-in pumps and proportioning systems, only robust and reliable Rosenbauer firefighting equipment is used. Depending on the pump, an output of up to 4,500 l/min can be achieved at 10 bar or 400 l/min at 40 bar (such as with the combined normal and high-pressure pump NH45), and water tanks with up to 5,500 l can be installed depending on the chassis. For the foam proportioning systems, you can choose between the premix system FIXMIX, which is completely integrated in the pump, or the water-driven direct injection proportioning system AQUAMATIC. On the roof you can also equip the ET with a manually driven RM24 monitor, which impresses with its high throw range of 70 metres at 10 bar.

Manual or electronic: simplest operation

With vehicles of the ET series, there are different options to control the vehicle and devices. On request the electronic LCS 2.0 system can also be used like a completely manual control system. One compromise is the new LCS 2.0 COMPACT, which already has an automatic pump pressure governor. No matter which type of operation you decide on: Rosenbauer follows a uniform operating concept for all vehicles, so that you can quickly find your way around in any vehicle. Optionally you can also fit the ET with the modern LED lighting concept from Rosenbauer.

Efficiency, economy and many equipment varieties: the ET series combines many big advantages into one new concept, which is already getting a lot of attention.
