Perform like no other when everything is on the line.
When you get called into action, the stakes are high. Lives. Homes. 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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

grab and go. It saves time while helping prevent injuries from having to climb up on top of your rig. Just as important, our

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

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.
From the pump to the paint, from the chassis to the chrome, we’ve got a great team eager to build you a great pumper.
And when you first set your eyes on your new Pierce rig, we can guarantee one thing: You’ll be pumping pure adrenaline.
