  • Pumper/tender ideas

    We are in the VERY EARLIEST phase of planning for a pumper/tender to replace an engine and a tender. The why is simple, staffing. We will still have an additional engine and an additional tender. So what has anyone done that they consider innovative, cool, or just plain mandatory in their mind?



    If you have pics that would be even better. Thanks.

    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    I'd go through the "Recent Deliveries" section of different builders to see if there's something you like. I know Pierce has the blueprints you can download, not sure if anyone else does, but a lot of times there's good photos.

      We have had this about a year now. It is amazingly agile for the size. Just over 37' long 2000 gpm / 2800 gallons. 500hp X12 Cummins. We basically did what you are saying. Replaced an engine 1750/1000 and tender 500/1800 with this truck. Technically the tender is still in the station but that was to make sure everyone got use to the new trucks.

      HME had it on their website as a new delivery video last summer.

        Holy crap, this kind of question in year's past would have brought dozens of responses and several arguments over what brand to buy.

        Thanks for your responses.

          When we did ours in 2008, size was the limiting factor. And that will probably be true for anyone. How big can you go without being unmanageable?

          For us, 32' long and 10' high were the limits. The bigger the vehicle can be, the more it can do. For us, the necessities were 4 crosslays, 1500' of 5", quick dumps operated from the driver seat, portable pond, and SCBA storage.
