Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc. has begun installing EPA2010-compliant MaxxForce 13 diesel engines in its Inferno and Igniter heavy-duty custom fire chassis. MaxxForce engines are designed, engineered, and built by Navistar Engine Group. The MaxxForce 13 produces 475 horsepower and 1,700 ft-lb torque, making it suitable for custom pumper, tanker, aerial and heavy rescue apparatus.
EPA 2010-compliant MaxxForce engines use Navistar’s in-cylinder emissions technology that does not require liquid urea. As a result, they require no additional wheelbase length to accommodate additional tanks, no secondary operating fluid to add (urea), and no additional driver training.
