These trucks are designed as more mobile counterparts to the full size pumper. Many departments use this type of unit to go where larger units can’t – up a driveway, down a mountain path, on the shoulder of a freeway, or even to the backside of a garden apartment complex. The large pumps may be used for both attack and supply. These units are usually built to comply with NFPA 1901, but can also be equipped with most of the specialty off-road options from our Wildland quick attack line.
Get the Most From Your Chassis
KME builds our mini-pumpers on the Ford Super Duty product. We know how to properly integrate the pump and body with the chassis, meet all NFPA standards, and avoid the dreaded overweight unit.
Body Configurations to Meet Your Needs
KME’s all aluminum construction comes in several shapes and sizes. If you need maximum maneuverability, our 10’ body fits on a 60” CA chassis and puts the pump controls in the front compartment. If you need more storage, our 109” body with a separate 34” pump house can feature seven full depth / full height compartments and internal ladder and hard hose storage. And all feature a fully modular construction with a heavy-duty aluminum subframe for maximum strength.
Pumping Power of a Big Unit in a Small Package
KME can provide full NFPA rated pumps from the leading U.S. pump manufacturers in capacities up to 1250 gpm. Our pump options include foam systems (including CAFS), LDH discharges, deck guns, hose reels, and multiple inlet connections almost anywhere on the truck. All of this is designed to allow you to move water like a larger unit without sacrificing the maneuverability of a smaller unit.
