Oshkosh Corporation | Date: 2016-11-14

A quint configuration fire apparatus includes a ladder assembly and a single rear axle coupled to a chassis. The single rear axle includes either a single solid axle configuration extending laterally across the chassis or a first axle having a first constant velocity joint and a second axle having a second constant velocity joint. The ladder assembly is extensible to provide a horizontal reach of at least 90 feet and a vertical height of at least 95 feet and configured to support a tip load of at least 750 pounds. A water tank is configured to contain at least 500 gallons of water. The center of gravity of at least one of the chassis, a body assembly, a pump, and the water tank are positioned to counterbalance a moment generated by the tip load with the ladder assembly extended to the horizontal reach of at least 90 feet.

A broom assembly for a vehicle includes a frame, a broom core axle rotatably coupled to the frame and defining an axis around which a broom rotates, an actuator coupled to the frame and positioned to raise and lower the axle relative to the frame, and a controller. The controller has an output for adjusting the actuator and an input for receiving information from a sensor. To account for the estimated wear, the controller is configured to use the received information to automatically lower the axle over a period of operation and use the sensor input to controllably adjust the actuator to a position setpoint changing over the period of operation. After operation, the controller is configured to use the sensor input to determine a current position, add an offset to the current position to achieve a new sensor target setpoint, and use the new setpoint to adjust the output.

A lateral access limitation system for a vehicle includes a first structural member configured to be coupled to a side portion of the vehicle, a second structural member including a first end and an opposing second end, the first end and the opposing second end of the second structural member releasably coupled to the first structural member, and a third structural member coupled to the second structural member. The third structural member is positioned to prevent unintended access to a protected region. The second structural member and the third structural member are configured to selectively pivot about both the first end and the opposing second end of the second structural member to facilitate accessing the protected region.

A vehicle storage assembly includes a bracket, a mounting plate, a post having a distal end and a proximal end, the distal end of the post rotatably coupled to the bracket and the proximal end of the post rotatably coupled to the mounting plate, an upper member defining a frame configured to support a rigging accessory, a lower member, and a locking member. The upper member includes an outer wall and a plurality of supports defining a plurality of stations. The lower member includes an outer panel and a plurality of partitions defining a plurality of cavities configured to receive the rigging accessory. The locking member is positioned to selectively fix the orientation of the post, the upper member, and the lower member thereby facilitating operator access to a desired one of the plurality of stations.
