FIRELITE ULTRA HIGH PRESSURE – UTV FCAT-209 / UTV-FCAT-209-85 / FCUHP-400 SERIES
The Firelite Transport skid units for UTV side by sides and our brush truck slip on models now offer the option of a Ultra High Pressure option in place of our standard High Pressure pump options. Powered by an electric start 9 HP Honda motor, all of our ultra high pressure models feature the CAT triplex pump, the gold standard in the world of Ultra High Pressure water delivery. The CAT UHP pump delivers a water sipping 6.7 GPM @ 1200 PSI. It is coupled to a pre-connected 1500 Series UHP Hannay Electric Rewind Reel, 100 feet of ½” UHP rated booster hose that is connected to the CAT Dual-Strike UHP Nozzle. This Ultra High Pressure Firefighting pump package is capable of Foam Injection Percentage from 0.5% to 6.0% of Class A foam. The entire CAT pump package delivered on our world class skid unit chassis delivers an incredible punch of water delivery at a very affordable cost.
The FIRELITE FCAT-209 and FCAT-209-85 UTV skid units featuring the CAT Ultra High Pressure Firefighting System is available with a 55 or 68 gallon poly water tank with a 5 gallon foam cell. Both models are available with the optional patient carry rescue area. Both slip on skid units fit into most of the larger UTV side by sides made today like the Polaris Fire UTV or Polaris North Star Edition, Can Am Defender, John Deere Gator, Gravely Atlas, Kawasaki Mule, Bobcat, Kubota and many more. The FCAT-209-85 (85 gallon tank) will require a UTV with a cargo bed capacity that exceeds 1200 lbs. These Firelite Transport fire rescue UTV skid units are best suited for situations that require an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) such as for situations where a wildland fire apparatus is needed to a fight a grass fire or brush fire or handle an off road rescue, large music events, county fairs, race tracks, beach patrols and urban events.
The FIRELITE FCUHP-400 Series Ultra High Pressure brush truck skid units are designed specifically for the smaller pickup trucks with either a short bed, long bed or custom flatbed (truck carrying capacity or the GVRW is very important as is the rated strength of the tires on the chassis – see web site for details). KIMTEK offers tank sizes that come in the following standard capacities: 125, 160, 200 & 300 – custom sizes are available. An integrated 5 gallon foam cells comes standard on all 400 series brush truck units.
