he HME Ahrens-Fox RATTM (Rapid Attack Truck) will outmaneuver a mini built on a Ford F-550 chassis, carry a full 500-gallons of water, has fully enclosed ladders, stainless steel body with full depth side compartments and can be rated as a Class-A engine with pumps from 500 to 1,750-GPM ratings. Even with six firefighters aboard, a full tank of water and fully loaded with equipment, it's not even close to being overloaded. When a mini just won't make it, check out the RATTM. Utilizing HME Ahrens-Fox exclusive Hydra TechnologyTM water delivery system, you have a choice of pumps up to 1,750-GPM, and pumps fomr 500-GPM to 1,250-GPM with pump and roll capability.

    Sounds like a damn good truck for what it's used for. Do you know if it comes in 4 wheel drive? My department responds to many conditions off road and will only be getting worse. We are in the center of the Oil and Gas industry. One other engine that we have been looking at is the Pierce PUC (Pump Under Cab). It is also a shorter version and able to out maneuver many appartus of half its size. I'll definitely be doing some more research on the RATT.

    Sounds like it is one great piece of machinery in a very small area!

    These trucks are awesome, they are built to your exact specifications, and they can go just about anywhere! Also they are built in Grand Rapids Michigan!
