Standard Roll-Over Protection



The Chaparral features the BATROPS (Blanchat Apparatus Transverse Roll-Over Protection System) which follows Surface Vehicle Standard SAE J1194 for roll-over protective structures. This is the same standard used for agricultural tractors.


No other industry manufacturer features a Fire Attack Operational Area that follows SAE J1194 for roll-over protection.

- Greg Blanchat




Two Fire Attack Operational Areas are located directly behind the chassis cab which allow a firefighter to stand or sit during pump and roll up to 15 MPH. The center Pump Control Operational Area allows access to the top-mount pump panel. The Pump Control Operational Area does not follow SAE J1194 and should not be used while the apparatus is in motion.

Blanchat Restraint System

A four point body harness is standard which allows the firefighter full movement within the Fire Attack Operational Area but locks upon any sudden movement keeping the firefighter from being thrown.
