There are a variety of scenarios where their is a need to have a larger extinguishing unit than a normal 5 or 10# extinguisher. In these cases, wheeled unit extinguishers hold more extinguishing agent than a hand-held unit. Heavy-duty wheeled units are still portable and can easily be moved to the area of the fire and can be operated by one person.
Typical uses for the wheeled unit extinguishers include:
In some of the scenarios listed above, it may be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to install any type of fire suppression system, making the need for large, portable extinguishing units that much greater. These units allow for flexibility as they can be stored and moved as needed. These units have different types of wheels depending on the type of terrain where they will be used. There are also a number of different extinguishing agents that can be used. There are agents available for Class A, B, C and D fires.
