Marion Body Works, a leading manufacturer of Fire & Emergency apparatus, Commercial truck bodies, aluminum custom cabs, custom engineered vehicles, and Defense products, recently unveiled its new RPM-PF (pump forward) fire apparatus at FDIC International 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The RPM-PF is the most technologically advanced Rescue Pumper Marion has ever built, while also featuring one of the most comfortable designs in the industry. In addition to the 750-gallon water tank, 1,500-GPM pump, 20-gallon foam tank system, and full hosebed, this engine also comes equipped with 9 full-depth storage compartments, a 10KW IHT-ready generator, a built-in light tower, and a fully-electronic touch screen pump and control panel – complete with a rear-view back up camera. It also features the lowest possible engine tunnel available and angled crew seats in an ELFD cab to make it the largest 6-man cab offering on the market.
Shane Krueger, National Sales Manager of Fire & Emergency Products at Marion, says there’s a lot to be excited about with the new rig. “With more and more fire departments relying on multifunctional apparatus these days, we really wanted to design the ultimate Rescue Pumper. With the RPM-PF, we were able to maximize the storage, tailor it for maximum comfort, and equip it with the latest tools and technology to efficiently tackle any challenge it’s called upon.”
The RPM-PF demo apparatus will be on display May 15-17 during FIRE EXPO in Harrisburg, Penn. and August 28-29 during the IAFC’s Annual Conference and Expo in Atlanta, Ga., but you can also contact the Marion F&E sales team at (715) 754-5261 for more information.
