An HME SFO® chassis and compact overall length delivers an industry leading 52˚ turn radius to provide access to tight spots, alleys, and two-tracks that can stop other fire trucks short of the objective. A powerful engine and durable drive train are engineered specifically for high volume rapid attack operations.

HME Hydra Technology™ delivers a dependable and efficient 1,250-gpm rating, along with a 500-gallon water tank. Ample hosebed and storage compartments have been designed to provide capacity for practically any initial response demand or need.

The durable stainless steel body, with roll-up doors and slam doors in the rear, plus a four-door custom cab with positions for six, offers more capability, more value, and more performance for virtually any rapid attack application.
