These trucks are designed as more mobile counterparts to the full size pumper. Many departments use this type of unit to go where larger units can’t – up a driveway, down a mountain path, on the shoulder of a freeway, or even to the backside of a garden apartment complex. The large pumps may be used for both attack and supply. These units are usually built to comply with NFPA 1901, but can also be equipped with most of the specialty off-road options from our Wildland quick attack line.

These units are multi-purpose, capable of not only Wildland attack, they can function as light rescue, initial attack, or medical support with the ability to be NFPA 1906 compliant. When properly designed and equipped, can meet all of the NWCG/FEMA/FIRESCOPE requirements for a Type 5, Type 6 or Type 7 Engine. Sometimes these units are pure Wildland, with features such as heavy-duty suspensions and tread plate bodies for durability off-road. KME has several base models to start with, including flatbed bodies, patrol bodies, and full light rescue style bodies. And we have a full library of options, including portable gas and diesel driven pumps, tank sizes, discharge locations, and off-road modifications.

The RidgeRunner™ brings you a large pumping capacity and a large water tank (up to 1000 gallons), combines it with superior pump-and-roll, puts it in a short package with a tight wheelbase, and accessorizes it with all the NFPA 1901 pumper requirements. Whether it’s on the highway, off road, in the forest, or up the driveway, the RidgeRunner™ is designed for the job.
