Description: This set includes a red and white two-section fire truck. The trailer carries an orange extension ladder that pivots 360 degrees. The trailor also holds the 2 accessory auxiliary ladders that double as extensions for the pivoting ladder. The set also includes a grey spotlight for night-time rescues, a snap-in water nozzle, and a Husky Helper fireman figure. Designed for children ages 3 to 6 years old.

This set was replaced 1979-1984's #319 Hook & Ladder. Both sets include the same 2 ladders and the same figure ('80-84 version). #319's "crome" spotlight and water nozzle were replaced with grey ones in the #4508. The truck and trailor are nearly identical. The difference between the two cabs is that the #319 has gold designed around the words "Fisher-Price" on the cab "doors", while the #4508 has "Fisher-Price" with 3 white lines behind the words on the cab "doors". The #319 trailor has a small litho on the side of electrical dials and gadgets, while the #4508 does not have a litho.
