Appleton, WI—Pierce Manufacturing has announced today that the new Pierce® Dash® CF apparatus is now available with the Detroit Diesel DD13 big block engine and on a broader range of vehicle configurations—including tandem axle pumpers, tankers, rescues and command units.
The Dash CF apparatus features a tilting cab-forward design that repositions the engine rearward and down low between the frame rails, with an open interior configuration that helps firefighters better prepare for the unexpected situations they face when arriving on scene. The vehicle dramatically increases driver and officer interior cab space, improves visibility and serviceability, and sets a new benchmark for heavy-duty construction – all in a compact easy to maneuver wheelbase.
The 2010 EPA compliant Detroit Diesel DD13 engine has demonstrated up to five percent better fuel economy than previous engines, while delivering up to 500 horsepower, 1650 ft-lbs of torque on demand and near zero emissions.
