During our February seminar in Austin County, Texas we came across a 2,000-gallon tanker from the Pattison Area VFD. We always like to look at the working end of a tanker and Tanker 2's is pretty simple. The tanker is outfitted to fill using 5-inch LDH ...and a short section of hose is carried right there for quick set-up! The swiveling dump chute is an economical way to go to achieve side and rear dumping capabilities. The folks from Pattison Area VFD did a nice job of hauling water with Tanker 2 during the 2-hr drill.

 
Tanker 2 carries 2,000 gal of water and a 2,100-gal dump tank. The rig is also equipped with a 1,000 gpm pump.
