Lego 60107 – Fire Ladder Truck

The Fire Ladder Truck is a new fire vehicle with two hundred and forteen pieces that will soon hit stores, just like the rest of the first 2016 city wave. This pretty fire set features besides the vehicle, two fire fighters (a couple) and a few small accessories such as a fire tank in flames and a couple of walkie-talkies and extinguishers.

The cabin has an ordinary structure, a big windshield, a steering wheel and seat and two old but nice side doors. Compared with other 2012 sets, the rear mirrors look old fashioned. Continue reading

Lego 7239 – Fire Truck

This Fire truck is one of the most consensual sets in fire theme. It combines perfectly with rescue sets or even with a fire station. Personally it’s one of the vehicles that are parked in my 7945 fire station. The set is composed by a 6 wheel truck and a trailer with a boat. The truck is quite complete in terms of equipment. It has a small room to store some equipment, a box with helmets, masks, oxygen bombs and all other stuff that you remember to put there.

The hose in the left side and the stairs in the roof make this truck an excellent vehicle to attack an urban fire incident. The two firemen that are present can perfectly handle with all the operation. In a crises environment, a fire for instance, the vehicle is immobilized the two supports that are gathered in the middle of the truck.
