PUC BROCHURE

Overview

The Pierce PUC™ is the first modern tilt cab emergency response vehicle designed specifically for the response duties of today’s fire services now with capacities of up to 2000 gpm.

The PUC eliminates the pumphouse so you can build your apparatus around your needs and not the pump. It minimizes vehicular space used for fire suppression and maximizes space for equipment while still providing big pump, foam and CAFS capabilities.

PUC removes the need to build the entire body around the pump and the pumphouse. And it’s the first apparatus that offers the most complete single-source build, from the chassis and body, right down to the pump. The PUC is available on pumpers, rescue pumpers, tankers and aerials.

The 2000 gpm pump (rated for draft) weighs 30% less than most existing pumps on the market and comes with a 7-year standard warranty.

We enclosed the pump operators 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.
  • New pump drive with integrated pump transmission.
     
    • Mission purpose.
    • Rugged reliability.
    • Service.
