Pierce's timeless industry-standard chassis offers big improvements.
The Saber chassis was built with the value-driven firefighter in mind - delivering advanced visibility, greater space, improved ergonomics, and streamlined serviceability at an affordable price.
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.
- 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
areergonomically designed for maximum convenience & comfort, keeping all of the gauges & switches within easy reach of the driver.
- 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.
50-degreecramp angle & 15-degreeangle of approach for improved maneuverability in those tight areas & challenging situations.
