The rig is powered by a Cummins ISL9 450-hp engine and an Allison EVS 3000 five-speed automatic transmission with pushbutton controls. A Harrison Model MCR 8-kW generator is installed on the starboard side in the hosebed storage pan.

The front bumper contains a 1¾-inch jump line connected to a discharge centered inside the tray compartment. Two 1¾-inch speedlays are located adjacent to the pump panel and discharge/suction outlets. The deck gun mounted in the hosebed is a TFT Hurricane, with wireless remote control, mounted to a three-inch discharge. Ladders (one 24-, one 14-, and one 10-foot attic ladder) are carried in a compartment on the upper right side of the hosebed body
