Tuftonboro (NH) Fire Department Adds Toyne Pumper-Tanker to Fire Apparatus Fleet

Mirror Lake, New Hampshire—Men and women of the Tuftonboro Fire Department welcomed the delivery of their new Toyne Tailored Pumper-Tanker. Bearing the “Engine 2” unit ID, this fully customized pumper-tanker will join alongside the department’s other Toyne apparatus, “Engine 1.” With the new addition, Tuftonboro fire crews are better equipped to take the call. 

Stall-built with bolted stainless steel, Toyne mounted the pumper tanker body on a Spartan Gladiator MFD chassis. The department selected a cab that features seating for a crew of six. Powering the apparatus is a heavy-duty Cummins ISX 15 engine, capable of producing over 565 horsepower, and an Allison 4000 EVS transmission. 

Equipped with a Waterous CSCU20 pump and FRC Pump Boss pressure governor, Tuftonboro’s pumper-tanker can move water at 1,500 gpm. Water is stored in a 2,000-gallon UPF tank. Also onboard is an Onan hydraulic generator. An Elkhart Stinger 8297 monitor, fitted with a Task Force Tips 18-inch extension, offers greater fire suppression flexibility for the firefighters. To enhance the pumper tanker’s capabilities, Toyne added a Foam Pro 2002 Class A foam system. 

“This is the second Toyne apparatus that we’ve delivered to the Tuftonboro Fire Department,” said Michael Schwabe, President and CEO of Toyne, Inc. “All of us at Toyne are very proud to have the opportunity to work alongside departments more than once. It allows us to develop a stronger sense of their needs and present new solutions quickly and confidently.”

The Tuftonboro Fire Department has served its New Hampshire community of 2,000 since 1938. Situated along Lake Winnipesaukee, the department provides mutual aid to other local water-front towns. On average, Tuftonboro firefighters respond to over 400 calls a year. To cover such a diverse territory, the department operates out of three stations and utilizes more than 10 apparatus. 

Tuftonboro’s new engine was sold by Eastern Fire Apparatus. The Toyne-authorized dealership is located in Milton, New Hampshire, and serves the needs of fire departments in New Hampshire and Maine.
