Side mount pumpers have dominated fire department fleets for decades and for good reason; they are tried and true. Rosenbauer is the leader in firefighting innovation, incorporating world-class features into your apparatus. Rosenbauer’s EXT, FX, and CT bodies are fully-customizable and are available in 1/8” or 3/16” aluminum or stainless steel. State-of-the-art body electrical wiring
reduces service time and money.


The opportunity to slip and fall is greatly reduced when pumping from the side of the apparatus. In addition, the wear and tear on a D-E’s joints are reduced because it is not necessary to step up and down to do the job. Some of the more “seasoned” veteran drivers stress that everything can be done from the ground and argue that the top-mount is very dangerous because there is nothing to hold the D-E in place should another vehicle strike it in the rear or on the side; the D-E would be thrown off. Depending on the severity of the crash, the D-E may even be crushed. If electrical wires land on the truck (because it is parked the wrong way or in the wrong spot), the D-E on a top-mount pump panel would be stranded. On a side-mount pump, the D-E would be able to just walk away from the apparatus.
