KME chassis now ready for 2010
KME Fire Apparatus announced at FDIC that its chassis are ready today for 2010 engine emission compliance and that it will offer apparatus utilizing both Advanced EGR and SCR engines.
Next year fire departments will have two choices when they purchase a vehicle: a vehicle that reduces emissions in-cylinder (Advanced EGR) or a vehicle that reduces emissions by adding an additional fluid (urea) through an after treatment system (SCR). KME is pleased to announce that it will offer both solutions to customers on a wide variety of platforms including KME's custom chassis and commercial chassis from several manufacturers.
On display at FDIC was a new 2010 Severe Service XMFD chassis utilizing a MaxxForce10 engine from Navistar Engine. The apparatus is fully compliant with 2010 emission standards and does not require additional exhaust treatment hardware or fluids.
Other features of the apparatus include:
For departments that plan to purchase apparatus either in 2009 or 2010, it's important that they understand now the impact of these changes so that they can adequately budget and plan for their fire fleets. Contact KME or one of its KME Sales Representatives today for more information.
