Fitted with Davey’s legendary Firefighter pump, the SKID unit can be used for fire fighting, tanker to tanker water transfer, high head general water transfer, sheep jetting/washing/disinfecting, irrigation and boom spraying.
One of the value added benefits when it comes to using one of our SKID units for fire fighting, is that it can be used to transfer water from any kind of nearby water source to the tanker when its runs empty during fire fighting.
“For example if a fire fighter has a tank on the back of his bakkie, he can simply back up to a water source and use the skid unit in a transfer configuration to pump water into the tank, before switching it back into its fire fighting mode,” explains Koorts. He also explains that one of the biggest benefits is that the fire fighter doesn’t have to switch of the engine during this process and due to the overflow function can keep the engine running, while driving to the fire.
This same water transfer function can be used to extinguish fires using water directly from the source and to move volumes of water in flood situations.
