Businesses. You want every possible advantage. You don’t just want a fire truck. You want a firefighting partner that’s utterly dependable and fully capable, that never gets in your way, and that practically knows what you need and when you need it. What looks like a detail in the factory can make a huge difference at the scene. If it can make your rig perform better, we’ve addressed it: design, materials and manufacturing. Every aspect of quality, fit and finish. Because we’ve engineered in performance from the start, we don’t need to compensate for poor design with thicker, heavier stock. We insist on welding our bodies. It requires a highly skilled work force, but the results speak for themselves. This commitment is as big as a chassis and as focused as a single bolt: We don’t use oversized rivets or other assembly line-type fasteners because they can compromise your performance. What does this attention to quality mean? In engineer talk, it means tensile load limits and endurance load limits that set industry standards. In English, it means rigs that can perform in the crunch and over the long haul. And once we design it, we test it. And then we test it some more – because we know that you test it on every run. We throw everything we can at it – strain gauges, modal analysis, brittle-lacquer, on- and off-road testing and tilt tables. Even the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Grounds. So you’re ready for every battle. From frame to finish, every component doesn’t simply perform. It performs for you. HIGH-STRENGTH PUMPHOUSE FRAME. In addition to less wear and tear, the pumphouse frame prevents valve control rods from binding, keeps perfect alignment on the controls and prevents sagging. Formed and welded bodies. We build them this way for increased longevity, space-enhancements and because it allows for flexible, customized designs. If space is at a premium for you, just say no to extrusions. Ten-ton rated tow bars. Pierce® Pumpers feature a tow bar rated at an impressive Rubber isolators for shock absorption. 10 tons. We put it at the back Rubber isolators provide an even more stable of the tailboard, so you don’t body with enough flex to absorb more shock and have to crawl on your belly to vibration. So your rig and the equipment stored get to it. Plus, it’s designed inside last even longer. so you can tie off loads and stabilize them, without the LAteral frame extensions for support. worry of a rope chafing and Lateral frame extensions are built off of the chassis frame rails, busting in the middle of a rescue. the strongest part of the truck. They put support where support performs best, under compartments. That’s why, even after years of use, Pierce® doors don’t sag. Bottom line: You can carry more, with more confidence. There are two keys to endurance: Taking punishment. And avoiding it. Doors that perform. Even our doors are designed to perform. Ultimately, they’re not doors but shields protecting your most valuable equipment. You can choose from the strongest, automotive-style lap doors with extra heavy duty quarter- Slammed. Smacked. And then smacked some more. It’s another routine run. You have to take the heat. And your pumper inch diameter hinge pins and dual gaskets for a tighter fit body has to take a pounding. and double protection. That’s where you get that ploomb That’s why we developed lateral frame extensions featuring 3/8” thick steel supports bolted directly to the chassis frame rails with 5/8” diameter bolts. We then use a floating substructure featuring neoprene elastomer isolators arranged in a 3-point mount that reduce torsional stress and road shock from being transferred to the body. In others words, less wrenching. Less smacking. And it’s only from Pierce. sound that lets you know you’ve got a Pierce. Or we offer smooth-as-glass roll-up doors that stay out of your way and come with a lifetime warranty. They’re designed and built exclusively for Pierce and feature a 3-inch maximum size roller to not interfere with compartment storage. And we can paint them to perfectly match the body color. Cookie-cutter design is great for cookies. You – and your community – demand something more. <W e offer a wide range of popular commercial chassis including Kenworth, International, Freightliner and others to meet your department’s needs. This configuration includes a medium body, Pierce® hydraulic ladder rack and double pan doors. A pumper is one of the most important investments you, your department and your community will ever make. Let’s face it, 10 years from now, when other decisions are long forgotten, the pumper you choose needs to remain an important part of your firefighting arsenal. That’s why the first question we ask isn’t “what can we do?” It’s “what do you need?” A short body for tight turning in the city? A medium body to accommodate extra gear? A long body to haul a lot of water in the country? You spec. We deliver. No one offers you more configurations in more sizes with a wider choice of materials than Pierce. We build aluminum and stainless or galvaneal bodies in six lengths and literally thousands of configurations. In fact, you can spec just about anything but the kitchen sink. Come to think of it, if you really need that sink, let’s talk.

That’s why we’ve developed and Pump Systems: Customized. Optimized. Maximized. For performance when you need it most. delivered more of them than anybody else. The Pierce Husky™ Foam System delivers serious knockdown capacity without drawing serious amps – needlessly straining your rig’s electrical systems. And the Husky system handles foam viscosities for Class A and B fires, from Alcohol Resistant AFFF to Class A foams. Plus all Husky Foam Systems allow for From the controls to the caps, we’ve maximized the performance of every component that directs and delivers the water or auxiliary foam pickup so you have the ability to run multiple foam. That’s why we custom engineer and build pump houses and integrated pump panels to your exact specifications with types of foam at a moment’s notice. It’s easy to operate and virtually unlimited plumbing options to meet the needs of your department. And our Control Zone™ pump panel provides an automatically adjust foam output to the proper percentage. unsurpassed level of user-friendly operation. And our Husky 30 System uses a metering valve and can run multiple discharges simultaneously. The Hercules™ Compressed Air Foam System drills firepower right to the source. It’s up to four times more effective than water. And in addition to its tremendous knockdown capabilities, it can lay down a long-lasting protective blanket that helps protect firefighters. Its 30% Pump Systems increase in range keeps you farther from the fire. It lasts longer, and adheres better than conventional foams. And a hose that is 50% lighter means less work and less fatigue. Of course, other foam systems are also available. 10S stainless steel pipe maximizes performance. Pierce uses 10S stainless steel pipe wherever possible for greater inside diameter, more flow and less friction loss. Maybe more importantly, our “belled end” fittings allow welded joints that are stronger and less prone to leakage than threaded pipe fittings. Control Zone™ maximizes control. VLH Caps maximize safety. Whether your needs call for side control or top mount, Our exclusive VLH ® caps are self-venting to help reduce our Control Zone™ organized pump panel simplifies your firefighter injuries caused by inadvertent pressure release. process and saves you valuable seconds with color coding, Grooves perpendicular to the thread allow excess pressure standardized knobs, and controls grouped by job, where you to escape as the cap is loosened.

Foam systems that help you perform way beyond the of defense. But it’s good to have a built-in safety backup. Every Pierce cap and adapter is a VLH safety valve. A rescue pumper isn’t about specs. It’s about situations. When Pierce designs a rescue pumper, every feature, every square foot of space, has to help you do your job better. This means increased storage so you can carry that one new rescue tool that might prove crucial when you’re responding to a multi-car pile-up on the Interstate. That’s why our rescue pumpers offer full-depth compartments over the entire height of the compartment. Because we rely on strength rather than bulk, we can provide bigger storage spaces and create custom compartment sizes, each with up to 800 lbs. of carrying capacity. And a multitude of storage options let you get to your equipment without skipping a beat. BELOW: This heavy-duty rescue pumper configuration features storage for hydraulic tools, slide-out tool boards, a ladder/equipment storage deck, an oil absorbent hopper and air bag storage. Rescue Pumpers/HDRPs And for the most extreme situations of all: Pierce HeavyDuty Rescue Pumpers. Some situations demand all that you’ve got and virtually everything you can carry. That’s what Pierce® Heavy-Duty Rescue Pumpers are all about. At 101 inches wide, they’re specifically designed for the most extreme situations. When a life is on the line and it feels like the world is on your shoulders, you’ll appreciate that these top-of-the-line rigs can carry all your gear and more. Each comes with up to 435 cubic feet of equipment storage. And with tank sizes of between 500 and 1,000 gallons, our HDRP can carry plenty of firepower with them. Pick your custom chassis. And pick your options. We’ve got what you’ll need. Just tell us what you want and we’ll come to the rescue. Bigger tank. Better handling. Easier access. One run and you’ll see why the Pierce® Rear-Mount Rescue Pumper makes other rear mount designs obsolete. It all begins with one ingenious feat of engineering: a lower drive train. By making the drive train lower than other rear-mount designs, Pierce makes your job a whole lot easier and safer. Lower chassis cross members give you greater tank capacity, and a lower center of gravity delivers better handling. It brings the hosebeds within easy reach and made the pump controls and discharge outlets more accessible. The Pierce Rear-Mount also delivers as much storage space as a traditional side mount pumper in a more compact package. That means you can work your way through traffic and get closer to the scene, faster. The Pierce Rear-Mount Rescue Pumper. Engineered from the ground up to let you perform at the highest level. REAR-MOUNT Rescue Pumpers Beast of Burden. And beneath it all is a quarter inch of flooring and substructure At the core of this Rescue Pumper is a 100% welded body that allows for 800 lb. compartment load ratings. that will stand up to years of service.

If you can carry it, you can use it. If you can access it, quickly and easily, you can use it more effectively. For example, you can store your ladders where you want them stored based on the way you use them. On top, on the side or enclosed. And don’t forget our awesome hydraulic ladder rack, which presents the ladder down to chest level, where you can grab and go. It saves time while helping prevent injuries from having to climb up on top of your rig. Just as important, our unique twin actuator design frees up compartment space.

Performance is about the little things. At Pierce, we make a big deal about little things. Consider paint. The difference between a Pierce® paint job and others might not be apparent right away. Until you start seeing some bubbles, corrosion or peeling on those other units. By then it’s a big problem that isn’t going to easily go away. Here’s how we cut the chances of corrosion way down: First we fit all components and drill holes before painting to ensure a proper fit. Then we remove those same components so every millimeter of surface area is exposed. Only then do we Pierce Dealer Sales and Service Network prime and paint the surfaces. Rust can’t get a foothold. Some may call this a little over-the-top. We call it doing it right. But it isn’t just about painting. It’s about pride. We can mix your unique color and create your department’s signature look. Visiting firefighters have been known to spend untold hours at our in-house graphics studio, searching through our library of past work and checking out the latest designs. From off-the-line shine to down-the-road service, the difference is in the details. Ultimately, your choice is often about the people and the company that stand behind your pumper. Pierce has the broadest support network and the most knowledgeable reps in the industry. You can tap into their extensive expertise on everything from storage configuration to service agreements. This network means that you protect your investment from the first design meetings to routine preventative maintenance and repairs that will be performed years down the road.
