What's on Your Tanker #08? - Maryland

Tanker 7 from the Lineboro VFD in Carroll County, Maryland is outfitted with a front discharge that is really convenient for nurse tanker operations. The 2014 US Tanker rig carries 3,000 gallons of water, two 2,100-gallon dump tanks, and is equipped with a 1,500 gpm pump. The feature that we find most unique is the front bumper discharge which uses 4-inch pipe and a 5-inch storz fitting. The front discharge can support a 1,000 gpm flow if needed - which provides some interesting flexibility in terms of setting up for nurse tanker operations on narrow access lanes.

 
Although 3-inch hose was used at this water supply drill in York County, Pennsylvania, Tanker 7's front discharge is outfitted to support 5-inch LDH.

The front discharge on this tanker helps support the "single-lane" concept in terms of apparatus positioning and space allocation.

US Tanker is one of the best manufacturer to work with if you want to think out of the box and not just build a unit like everybody else. We have 6 units that have been built by US Tanker. They are true craftsmen.
