  • Urban Interface Pumpers

    I know all about using the search to find past posts on this topic, but that wouldn't really help me with a NEW apparatus.......would it???

    My department is currently trying to spec out a Urban Interface Pumper. We want all of the bang we can get for the fewest bucks, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any manufacturers who are on the cutting edge designing this type of apparatus? Any help or suggestions would really be appreciated.

    Take a look at the ( Rosenbauer ) Timber Wolf pumper! Also Kme Fire Apparatus has two GMC 4x4 mini pumper demo's for sale built on a 2 door & 4 door GMC 5500 chassis.

      If you need bang for the buck, Rosenbauer is a good choice. They recently sold about 250 rigs to the park service.

        I have to agree with the others. I would definately look into the Rosenbauer Timberwolf. They usually put them on an International 4 door chassis. Is what sets the Timberwolf apart from others is the Rosenbauer normal/high pressure pump which gives pump and roll capabilities in forward/neutral/reverse. They also have their own mechanical foam system which works real well with the pump.

        Don't take my word for it, call your local rep and see if they can set a demo up for you. I think you will be just as impressed as I was.

          Yes, I like the fact that Rosenbauer has made a full-blown interface rig standard with a (1,000gpm) rear-mount pump.

            DISCLAIMER - I sell Rosenbauer now, so take that how you will.

            Like FyredUp, my department purchased some rigs from the company I now sell for prior to my being employed by them.

            We have an U/WI rig that Rosenbauer built for us. We're very pleased with it, and I would be happy to send you specs and a drawing. I can't sell to you in New Mexico - so that's all it would be is some info. Send me a PM if you're interested. There are some things that I think Rosenbauer can do to set themselves apart for the competition on such a rig, but let's let your local Rosenbauer representation sell you the truck.

            Hope I didn't stick my neck out here too much, if someone has a problem, let me know and I'll edit my post.

            Also like Bltizfire said, we have a 1,000 gpm pump, and you can now go to 1,250 and still be pump and roll depending on how you option the rig.

                OMG!!! A transport pumper? How many hospital E.D. overhangs will need to be replaced after being run into with that thing?

                  I'm a facilitator (isn't that what drug dealers say too?) I don't even try to pretend to know what some departments need for an apparatus that will fit their specific operations will be, until I sit and meet with them and understand that department's "way of life." But I actually had a customer look at the concept somewhat seriously, and if they found a need for it - who am I to tell them they're wrong? It gets tricky for us sales drones...

                  I don't know all the details, but I know of at least one other builder that has also proposed a similar concept, because there was at least one department seriously interested in the idea. I'm not talking about the already completed units by Seagrave, E-One etc. either...

                      Is it saying the file size is too large?

                              What did that first rig cost?

                              Looks like a good setup.
