Pierce Saber Custom Chassis - Overview

Visibility & Space

  • Exceptional visibility is achieved through a large, bonded, single-piece, wrap-around windshield.
  • The smaller engine tunnel is lower & more contoured for increased occupant space, particularly up front for the driver & officer. 
  • The forward roof design offers a cathedral ceiling feel with increased frontal visibility & more configurable space. 

Ergonomics

  • Exterior door handles are functionally designed for a firefighter's gloved hand. 
  • The steps are lower to the ground & offset to function like a stair step, making it easier for firefighters to enter & exit the cab. 
  • The console & metal overhead switch panel are ergonomically designed for maximum convenience & comfort, keeping all of the gauges & switches within easy reach of the driver. 

Serviceability

  • Easy access to the defroster & wiper motors through removable officer-side panels. 
  • Power distribution relocation provides more interior space & fewer harnesses ion the frame & up through the cab for easier servicing. 
  • Built-in wire raceways throughout the cab reduce the chance of wire chafing & make it easier to service or add cab harnesses & wiring. 

Maneuverability

  • Maximum 50-degree cramp angle & 15-degree angle of approach for improved maneuverability in those tight areas & challenging situations.
