KME Unveils New Engine and Transmission Combinations

The KME 2012 FDIC exhibit will feature a wide range of custom apparatus with the largest offering of horsepower and model options available to the fire service. KME apparatus features both Cummins and MaxxForce engines with ratings from 300 to 600hp. These brands also represent both urea and non-urea based technologies for emission compliance.

KME’s display includes an FDIC exclusive 405hp MaxxForce 10 engine, a new rating for that model. In addition, KME will have a pumper with a MaxxForce 13, 450hp 13 litre engine paired with an Allison 3000 EVS transmission. Also an FDIC exclusive, this combination offers big bore engine power with the affordability of the 3000 EVS transmission, saving customers up to $7,000.

Apparatus with both Cummins ISL and ISX engines will also be on display. The Cummins line offers the broadest range of models and horsepower ratings available to the fire service.

While other suppliers limit engine offerings, KME continues to offer our customers a wide range of products that bring affordability, reliability and innovation to the fire service.
