New BB2226 Bambi Bucket for small/medium helicopters completes Bambi Bucket lineup

Jul 25 2007
DELTA, CANADA - SEI Industries Ltd. announces the release of the BB2226, a 1000 liter/264 USG Bambi Bucket designed specifically to provide an optimum balance between capacity and weight for the Eurocopter AS 350B3 Series and similar-sized small and medium helicopters.
The compact BB2226 complements the existing Bambi Bucket line, closing the gap between the 240-gallon BB2024 and the 324-gallon BB2732 Bambi Bucket.  It was developed in response to customer demand and will be a permanent addition to the existing family of Bambi Bucket models.
 
"This new Bambi Bucket provides operators with a perfect balance of agility and fire attack power," said Jens Sigvardt, Divisional Manager of Aerial Firefighting Products.  "Our goal is to help pilots achieve the lowest possible turnaround times and the best volume/hour performance."
 
Like all Bambi Buckets, the BB2226 allows helicopter operators to access virtually any water source, and is stable and responsive in flight.  The BB2226 can be enhanced with the Powerfill system to add rapid shallow-fill capability, and the Aqualanche Valve to enable variable dump capacity.  This new model is built upon the same time-tested engineering concepts that have been the hallmark of the Bambi Bucket for over 25 years.
