Description:

Proud, poised and ready to work HME apparatus carry a tradition of service that goes back more than 90 years. Our pumpers are heavy duty and nimble, designed to maneuver through City Streets, Country Roads or through uncharted terrain, wherever their service is needed. Featuring rugged stainless steel bodies and HME Hydro-Technology® pumphouse systems their stately appearance is rivaled only by HME's commitment to the quality of components and workmanship provided with each apparatus. Water tank capacities vary from 500 - 1600 gallons on our single axle units. Our unique bolted design eliminates the need for heavy, old-fashioned body mounts that needlessly add to the weight of other apparatus. The low maintenance virtues of brushed stainless steel make painting of the body unnecessary. Our bolted bodies are easy to repair and HME makes repair parts and panels easy to get. Everything is assigned a part number. Your apparatus is archived at HME to assure that parts are readily available. This all adds up to a cost-effective apparatus - now and in the future; something you can count on from HME! More evidence that when it comes to fire apparatus, HME is "Simply the Best!"

    Have never seen this before, but looks pretty cool. The description makes it sound pretty good.

    My department has a Custom HME Cab and Body. The engine works good. It is first due for my town.

    The department I previously worked for purchased an HME pumper. The whole department, as well as the town loved it. Our town was only about 40 minutes from the HME factory in Wyoming, MI. Not to mention, a few years after I left my department due to relocating to a different city, I worked for a fire protection company and HME was one of my accounts. I visited their location twice a year and knew some of their employees. I can tell you that most of the people that build HME trucks are firefighters themselves and take great pride in their work. Not to mention that at that time HME was building a fleet of pumper trucks for Saudia Arabia. With their expert craftsmanship, its no wonder that my town's HME truck out performed not only our older fire apparatus, but out performed the new fire apparatus acquired by other departments in our area.

    My department has 2. Time & time again these engins surpasses our much newer E-One tanker in quality reliability, and they have an even better turning radius than our Ford F-550.

    I like it. Especially the top mount pump.
