About this creation
The 500 gpm TFT Tornado monitor can be controlled from the cab
Additional details on the cab include multiple forward scene lighting to assist in viewing potential obstacles. The NightScan PowerLite can provide illumination for extended periods. The cab is also equipped with GPS and WiFi to help track weather conditions. The 1000 gpm pump is a PTO pump that can be activated while the vehicle is in motion. There is also a CAFS pump that allows any of the preconnects or monitors to flow up to 1% foam. Seen here is also the 1000 gpm Stang monitor for large fires.

Rear of the apparatus shows the hosebed for 400 ft of 4” LDH, 250 ft of 1.75” attack hose, and 300 ft of 1.5” forestry hose.
