In response to requests from fire departments, KIMTEK has introduced the FIRELITE® FHR-205, a new version of its popular FIRELITE® series skid units for use with UTVs. Distinct from KIMTEK's patient transport units in the FIRELITE series, the FHR-205 skid unit positions the hose reel to wind off to the rear. Constructed of KIMTEK's signature rugged, high quality aluminum diamond plate and tubing, FHR-205 skid units are durable, attractive, and produced to KIMTEK's highest standards of manufacturing.
Utilizing the space other models reserve for patient transport, KIMTEK's FHR-205 has positioned the Hannay 4000 Series manual reel to face rearward, winding off to the rear rather than to the side. In addition to the Hannay reel, FHR-205 units come with a hose storage area with tailgate adjacent to the pump and a Darley-Davey pump. It is available with a 55 or 70 gallon poly water tank. Optional upgrades include an electric reel rewind, Scotty Around-The-Pump foam system with 5-gallon foam cell, and electric start on the Honda-driven pump.
KIMTEK offers a complete line of FIRELITE transport skid units and options to meet every department need. KIMTEK president Kimball Johnson said of the new addition to the FIRELITE line, "It's always our mission to listen to our customers who work daily to meet their department requirements while staying within budgets. We're pleased to add another version of our signature FIRELITE series that meets a specific need while delivering the KIMTEK quality and performance they rely on."
