October 9, 2019–Orleans, VT - Fire departments with brush trucks are benefitting from three new skid unit options just introduced by KIMTEK Corporation. These additions to KIMTEK's FIRELITE® 300 series meet the latest demand for basic, firefighting-only skid units ideal for applications that do not require area for storage and patient transport.
KIMTEK's new FDHP 304, 305, and 306 model skid units come equipped with a manual Hannay 4000 Series reel and a water tank in 125, 160, or 200 gallon capacity. Buyers have their choice of four pump options: the Davey 6.5, 9, and 13 hp pumps and the new Darley 1.5 AGE 13HX which produces pressures up to 225 psi and is also available on all KIMTEK brush truck 300 series skid units.
Bearing a sleek, basic design, these newest FDHP skid units are priced affordably and are produced with the same high quality materials and workmanship expected of every KIMTEK product. Like the FDHP 301, 302, and 303 models, the new FDHP 304, 305, and 306 model skid units have all-aluminum diamond plate construction with aluminum tubing, stainless steel plumbing with brass 1/4-turn valves, NFPA fully baffled water tank, and a reinforced base with space to accommodate a fork lift. The entire line of KIMTEK brush truck skid units and all available options may be viewed at www.kimtekresearch.com.
