KIMTEK’s New Skid Units with Removable Water Pumps for Remote Forest Fires

Orleans, VT—In response to requests from forestry service fire departments, KIMTEK has introduced two new FIRELITE®skid unit models featuring a removable and portable lightweight pump. The FM-207 and FMH-208 join KIMTEK’s line of FIRELITE series skid units for use with UTVs and conveniently allow swift removal of the powerful yet lightweight pump for transport to locations even a UTV cannot reach.

Each of the new units features a lightweight Mercedes Wick® 100-4H pump driven by a 2.1-hp Honda motor and delivers a rating of 20 gpm at 70 psi. Easily removable for use in the field, the pump can be hand carried or used with an optional backpack harness available for purchase from KIMTEK. The Wick pump drafts with the included Hydro-Wick® hand primer.

Like several units in the KIMTEK FIRELITE line, the FM-207 and FMH-208 allow room for patient transport. They include a hose storage area with tailgate adjacent to the pump. The FMH-208 unit includes a Hannay 4000 Series manual reel. Optional upgrades include an electric rewind on the reel and Scotty Through-The-Pump foam system with 5-gallon foam cell.
