Brush trucks that extinguish wildfires...and our competition!
Fire Chiefs all across the United States have been telling us what they needed to fight the country's most challenging brush fires and what other brush truck manufacturers were missing. We listened, and then took serious action. Now available, built from the ground up using military technology, military hardware, and custom built components, we give you the brush truck that can handle extreme offroad terrain. This brush truck gets you where other brush trucks cannot go. Based on a Ford F-550 4X4 heavy duty chasis, we upgraded the suspension for better ground clearance, a whopping 25 ½" from the ground to the belly of the vehicle. WOW!! Our wheel and tire combination is derrived from military technology, meaning it is heat and puncture resistant with run flat capability. With Ford's 6.4L twin turbo diesel and the super duty chassis in combination with our custom upgrades, this truck is basically unstoppable! But, if you ever got caught in a tight situation, there are front and rear Warn 16.5 TPI winches that can pull you out.
The tool placement is, by far, the best idea around. The tools are in sight, at point of use, and there is no fumbling around in a box trying to find the tool you need to fight fire. The old saying, "out of sight, out of mind" will not apply on this brush truck. Plus, all of the tools are brand name and the best in the market. The pump system is also unbelievable. With a self-contained Daihatsu Vanguard diesel engine running a 490 gpm pump with 500 gallons of water capacity with 20 gallons of foam, think of the fire knock down capabilities you will have. A front turret nozzle that is joystick operated from inside the vehicle, one firefighter can fight fire and drive at the same time!
Take a look at at our spec sheet for more information and compare it to other brush trucks. This truck comes FULLY equipped to fight fire. Just add water, foam and go! While you're here, be sure to check out our media section, where you can see exciting pictures and video of our heavy-duty brush trucks in action under some of the most adverse conditions imaginable - the kind of conditions firefighters like you have to work under on a daily basis.
By now, you may be wondering how we're able to meet the needs of fire departments so effectively. Simply put, we know what firefighters need because in addition to being truck manufacturers, we were (and many of us still are) firefighters. We've spent more than our share of time in the field so we know exactly what's needed for you to do your job quickly, safely and effectively. Now, we know that we don't know everything, so we've invested a lot of time to get the professional opinions of firefighters across the country. We asked them about the challenges they faced, the limitations of their existing equipment and what they would want in an ideal solution. We evaluated all factors, from cost to performance to life span, and based on the reactions we receive on a daily basis, we seem to have achieved a brush truck that's pretty close to perfection.
If you're like most of the firefighters who've seen our brush trucks, you're probably pretty excited about what they can do for your department. If that's the case, we would love to hear from you, so please take a minute to fill out our contact form and let us know the best time to reach you. We look forward to hearing from you.
