Tender 5

Tender 5 is a Peterbilt chassis with a 435 horsepower Caterpillar engine and a 3500 gallon U.S. Tanker water tank. Three 10” dumps on the back of the tank allow gravity dumping to either side or the back. Two 2.5” outlets are powered by an 18 horsepower, Briggs & Stratton pump if direct pumping is desired. There is a five gallon bucket of foam and a pre-connected eductor for foaming capabilities with the turn of a valve. There is only room for a driver and on officer, as Tender 5’s main duty is to haul water to a rural fire scene.
