Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced that it will be offering the new Cummins ISX15 fifteen liter engine on the Pierce Velocity custom chassis. The engine delivers an impressive 550 horsepower and 1850 ft-lbs of torque, and will be on display at the Pierce booth #8647 at the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, Ind., April 22-24.
“Pierce is synonymous with custom fire apparatus and providing more choices for our customers. That’s why we’re excited to announce the availability of the Cummins all new ISX15 fifteen liter engine,” said Wilson Jones, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “With its outstanding power, fuel economy and reduced emissions, it’s a great choice for departments that demand the most from their apparatus.”
The EPA 2010 compliant Cummins ISX15 engine offers superior driving performance; improved fuel economy and emissions levels are reduced to near zero without sacrificing reliability or durability. In addition, Pierce engineers have developed a patent-pending packaging solution that will not adversely affect wheelbase length, cab and compartment space, or choice of options on the vast majority of apparatus. Other Cummins engine choices available on Pierce vehicles will include the ISC8.3, ISL9 and the ISX11.9.
