Carrot River has welcomed a a custom made $485,000 Rosenbauer FX GM pumper, reports Yahoo News.
The pumper was assembled on a 2020 international HV507 four-wheel drive chassis and had its features custom selected by the town’s fire chief Bryce Lytle.
Custom features include: a front mounted bumper turret for extinguishing wildfires, a rear compartment booster reel, and a top mounted enclosed pumper with a 1,250 gallons per minute pump with a FoamPro 1,600 straight injection foam system.
The new truck sits five crewmembers. Their retired 1992 pumper had enough seating for three crew members, which was further limited to two due to the gear shift layout.
