PUC™

The Pierce Ultimate Configuration.

Overview

The Pierce PUC™ is an industry-changing multi-purpose response vehicle. The PUC:

•    Eliminates the pumphouse, so you can build around your needs, not the pumphouse

•    Provides big pump, foam and CAFS capabilities 

•    Reduces operational steps with a two-step technology 

•    Is easier to service, disassembly not required

•    Is safer, by moving the pump operator position next to the hose connections and incorporating chest height crosslays, ladder storage and ladder access to the hosebed

•    Minimizes vehicular space used for fire suppression, maximizing space for tools and equipment 

•    Is easier to maneuver, incorporating wheelbases as short as 172”, a fold-up rear work platform and Pierce TAK-4® Independent Front Suspension and 45° cramp angle

Easier To Service

Its convenient location allows for all maintenance to be completed above the frame rails, no more working from under the truck on your back

Pump Panel

The 1500 gpm pump (rated from draft) weighs 30% less than most existing pumps on the market. Pierce enclosed the pump operator’s panel on the side mount to keep it clean of grime, grit and moisture. The next generation Control Zone™ pump panel is designed to fit the way you work with:

•    Large lever control handles that lock to prevent valve creep under pressure

•    Multi-functional pressure governor

•    Extra-large engine RPM display

•    Fuel level monitoring

•    Pump prognostics
