Dash CF, Husky 3 Foam System and Bronto Skylift
Pierce redefined custom fire apparatus with the launch of the Dash® CF. The apparatus features an innovative 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.
Pierce introduces the Husky™ 3 foam system, the only entry-level foam system available with Class A and Class B capabilities. The only system on the market to fill the foam tank from the ground as standard.
Pierce and Oshkosh Airport have sold over 100 Pierce fire trucks and Oshkosh® airport vehicles in China. In the municipal, industrial, and oil & gas sectors, Pierce’s advanced high technology fire trucks are well suited to meet China’s needs. Pierce custom vehicles sold to China include high-rise pumpers, aerial ladders and industrial pumpers, which deployed to fire departments across multiple provinces in China.
