Rear Mount Pumpers
The potential of reducing your overall vehicle length can be realized with a Rosenbauer rear mount pumper. Eliminating the large traditional pump house allows for a more maneuverable apparatus. Pump control panel locations can be crafted as a true rear-mount with all controls enclosed rear compartment a curb-side configuration with the panel on the officer’s side of the apparatus or the panel on the operator’s side.
Myth: Rear-mount’s reduce storage space for equipment. Fact: Rosenbauer is a top-tier manufacturer with decades of experience in customized equipment mounting. Your department will work with our design engineers to create an engineering schematic to map our all of your required tools.
Why Rear Mount Pumpers
Rear-mount pumpers offer significant advantages in terms of maneuverability, safety, and increased compartment space. Rear-mount pumpers are typically three to four feet shorter than a standard pumper, which makes them more maneuverable. Space where the pump house would have been in the center of the truck becomes a transverse compartment that allows a significant increase in compartment space. With a 1,000-gallon water tank and a 40-inch pump module, you can get a 120-inch cab-to-axle measurement on a typical pumper. If you put the pump in the rear, you can move the water tank forward and balance the load better while you’re maximizing the amount of water you carry.
