The Eliminator Tanker sets the standard for efficient water tankers in the safest configurations available today. The unique water tank design optimizes the weight distribution of the apparatus while providing a low center of gravity, low travel height and reduced overall length.

With an ergonomic pump operator’s panel design and the ability to incorporate the maximum amount of equipment storage on either custom or commercial chassis, the Eliminator Tanker is the only choice for a combination Tanker Pumper unit.

Some departments need the full features and benefits of a front line pumper, along with the large water supply of a tanker. The KME Dry side tanker combines both of these demands on a single unit, while maintaining the high level of safety that you expect. The Dry Side tanker is available on any of KME’s custom chassis lines, or any commercial chassis available for the fire market.

Wet Side Tankers range from 1,000 to 4,000 gallon capacity, offering a low center of gravity and short wheel base. While the tank acts as the upper body, the lower fire body compartmentation is solidly constructed from the customers choice of Galvanneal steel, aluminum, 3CR12 Stainless, or 304L Stainless Steel. Wet Tankers offer ample storage with compartments available forward and rearward of the axles, or between the tandem axles. Tankers carry a wide variety of accessories, and the wet side tanker is equipped to accommodate all of those accessories with customized storage for each device.

The KME Elliptical Tanker is equipped with short wheelbases and a low center of gravity to provide a safe and functional apparatus design. Starting with the economical LE tanker, or the sensible LX tanker, through any custom designed Elliptical Tanker, KME considers proper weight distribution, center of gravity and chassis components to ensure the safest, most reliable tanker product available today.
