Ocala, FL—E-ONE, a member of REV Group (REV), a manufacturer of motor vehicles for commercial, fire and emergency, and recreation markets, is delivering on a multi-unit award from the DLA Troop Support’s Heavy Equipment Procurement Program (HEPP). The contract includes nine U.S. Army 4×2 custom structural pumpers.
In choosing E-ONE, the U.S. added to the 17 E-ONE pumpers purchased in 2014. “E-ONE is thrilled to have another opportunity to deliver these emergency response vehicles to the U.S. Army,” says RJ Jones, E-ONE Sales and Product Manager for ARFF and Federal Government Products. “These pumpers are equipped with key features and have a well thought out configuration.”
The new U.S. Army pumpers have E-ONE Typhoon™ chassis with seating for four firefighters. Each of the pumpers has ample cab storage, featuring three medical cabinets and an exterior gear compartment. The heavy-duty front bumper includes a Line-X-coated gravel shield. These pumpers also feature 750-gallon water tanks, 50-gallon foam tanks, Waterous CSU 1,500-gpm water pumps, and high-capacity electronic foam systems.
The high-strength, extruded aluminum cab features a “built-in” roll cage to provide maximum protection and comfort for firefighters. Additional features include lower hosebed and crosslay heights for improved accessibility from ground level, LED lighting, and aluminum diamond-plate hosebed covers.
Eight of the latest Army pumpers will be delivered to military bases within the United States and one destined for Puerto Rico.
