KIMTEK adds brush truck skids

April 20, 2020
New 400 Series units with high-pressure pumps designed for departments seeking affordable, high-quality options

KIMTEK recently added six new ultra high-pressure models to its brush truck series skid unit lineup.

The new 400 Series FIRELITE FCUHP-401, -402, -403, -404, -405 and -406 model skid units are used by departments seeking affordable brush truck units with an industry-leading CAT ultra-high-pressure pump, the company said.

KIMTEK also offers the new 400 Series in options that include a patient transport area, which can hold a long board or stokes basket, or accommodate other optional items that can be added, such as storage boxes and supply line trays. These units include the FIRELITE FCUHP-401, -402, and -403 deluxe models. The FCUHP-404, -405, and -406 models integrate a more basic design and include no patient transport area. 

All of KIMTEK's FCUHP-400 Series skid units are equipped with an electric rewind Hannay 1500 Series reel and come in 125-, 160- or 200-gallon water tank configurations. They are powered by a 9-horsepower Honda GX270 electric start coupled to a CAT triplex gearbox-driven ultra-high-pressure pump producing 6.7 gallons per minute at 1200 psi. The 400 Series brush truck skid units also include 100 feet of ½-inch high pressure-rated booster hose with a CAT dual-strike foam nozzle capable of delivering foam or water. The CAT foam system permits a foam induction rate of 0.5% to 6.0%.

Incorporating KIMTEK's “sleek and sensible” design, new FIRELITE FCUHP-400 Series brush truck skid units are affordably priced, yet produced with the same high-quality materials and workmanship that departments throughout the world expect from KIMTEK, the company maintained. The 400 Series units incorporate all-aluminum diamond plate construction, aluminum tubing, pressure gauge, inlet filter, and primary and secondary pressure relief valve system.

All NFPA fully baffled water tanks are on reinforced bases, with spaces to accommodate a forklift for easy installation in brush trucks.
