January 18, 2007, Manassas, Virginia -- LUF60 is manufactured in Austria by Rechner's Ges M.B.H and distributed in the Unites States & North America exclusively by Singer Associates. Singer Associates plans to demonstrate this unique firefighting partner at National and Regional Trade Show Expos and Conferences or by appointment.

The LUF60, a wireless remote controlled mobile firefighting support unit, clears the path for advancement of up to a distance of 1000 feet by incorporating a high capacity positive pressure ventilator and a "water beam" fog. This combination clears away smoke, heat, toxic gases and reduces the intensity of the fire, allowing firefighting and rescue teams to more safely approach the incident. The diesel powered LUF60 is a rugged machine that can withstand the rigors of severe operating conditions and confined spaces. The ability of the LUF60 to perform as a forward deployed "Scout" sets it apart from its competitors. Applications in a variety of situations, include, but are not limited to: rail & subway tunnels, aircraft hangers, chemical, industrial & power plants, warehouses, commercial buildings such as parking garages and underground malls.
Standard equipment includes steel/cast aluminum water cannon with a hydraulically driven ventilation fan, 360 high pressure nozzles that produce an air flow stream of well over 53,000 CFM, and a wireless remote with spare battery and on board charger. Optional features include an additional Ventilator that can be operated as a suction fan (ventilation funnels, city-channels, etc.) or as a positive pressure fan (tunnels, factories, large buildings, etc.) and a Rail Kit -- a modular system which can be assembled on-site within minutes and driven on a railway system. The Rail Kit, in combination with the LUF60, is an ideal package for operational crews in rail and subway tunnel systems. The unit can be used as a rescue shuttle, LUF60 main unit carrier, or for firefighters' transportation.
