1986 Ford Tanker
The 1986 Ford Tanker was purchased in
March 1997 from Deep South Fire Equipment. The tanker is built on a refurbished 1986 Ford L-9000 tandem axle chassis and is powered by a Cummins L10 300 hp turbocharged diesel engine with an Allison five speed automatic transmission.
The tank is approximately 2500 gallons and the pump is a 500GPM PTO pump. The tanker also carries a 2500
gallon portable tank for shuttle operations. It can dump its full load in about one minute utilizing its
ten inch rear dump.
