KIMTEK’s FIRELITE slip-on skid units built for a budget

KIMTEK, a manufacturer of modular skid units for firefighting and emergency medical transport based in Orleans VT, says it designed its FIRELITE Transport FDHP-300 series skid units for budget-minded departments seeking a quality, low-cost brush truck.

“Rugged and easy to use,” the company said, these “no-nonsense” wildland firefighting slip-on units, featuring a low profile and low center of gravity, are designed to perform on or off road. The FDHP-300 series also can be used to carry a patient in off-road rescue situations, and is available in 125-, 160- and 200-gallon configurations.

All FDHP-300 series fire slip-on units come with an electric rewind Hannay 4000 series reel and Scotty Around the Pump Class A foam system with 5-gallon foam cell. The rescue area boasts stainless-steel grab bars and a large hose storage area under with tailgate.
