New confi guration fi re truck

The PUC (Pierce Ultimate Confi gura-tion) fi re truck design removes the space-consuming pump house by locating the fi re pump underneath the vehicle’s cab instead of in the mid-section of the fi re truck to increase maneuverability, position hoses and fi re system controls for ergonomic access, and dramatically increase equipment storage space. The PUC features a simplifi ed, two-step pump shift operation and “single touch” water-foam-CAFS selection that has the chosen system up and functional before the operator is out of the cab. Hosebeds, crosslays and ladder access are lowered for better ergonomics.

The Oshkosh S-Series front-discharge concrete mixer truck is now available with the Revolution composite mixer drum. “We’ve spent a tremendous amount of time and energy to engineer, design and test the Revolution drum for front discharge applications,” said Mike Wuest, president of McNeilus Companies, an Oshkosh Truck Corporation subsidiary.

Front-discharge mixer

The Oshkosh S-Series front-discharge concrete mixer truck is now available with the Revolution composite mixer drum which is 2,000 pounds lighter than a comparable steel drum. This allows ready mix producers to carry an additional half cubic yard of concrete per load. The truck has a Lincoln Quicklub central-point grease system for the turntable, drum rollers, spring pins and other common greased locations, with metered flow to each location. A Vulcan mixer scale located on the rear pedestal measures vehicle payload with an in-cab display or optional interface with a Trim-ble fleet management system.
