The Waterous family of fire pumps is expanding. The new Endurance line of mid-ship mounted, single-stage, fully-manifolded fire pumps are a smaller, lightweight apparatus powered by a cooler-running transmission with increased shifting performance.
“The Endurance has been adjusted to meet the needs of the fire service as well as EPA regulations,” said Steve Toren, director of sales and marketing. “We removed about 90 lbs. of non-critical mass from our CS/CSU pumps to create the Endurance line, which will help OEMs meet the forthcoming weight requirements of 2010.”
As well as less overall mass, the Endurance line features a new aluminum transmission, the C20, which runs at 12% cooler temperatures, uses 35% less lubricant and weighs 31 lbs. less than the Waterous C10 transmission. The transmission additionally shifts with increased performance resulting from a reduction in non-critical parts and technical upgrades.
The Endurance pumps feature a single impeller, offer streamlined operations, and come with a five-year warranty.
