What's on Your Tanker #51 - Soft-Side Dump Chutes
By President Mark Davis
April 11, 2024

During our 2012 seminar in Amenia, New York we came across an interesting dump chute design on an older, 3200-gallon tanker out of the Stanford (NY) Fire District. The side dump chutes were soft-sided; made of "dump tank-like" material. We really have not seen another set-up like this; it worked pretty well and the rig did a great job of hauling water during the 2-hour drill. The design did not appear problematic during the time period that we saw it work. Simple....just different.
