Kubota Drop-in Fire Suppression Unit for RTV900 Worksite Utility Vehicle
April 16, 2009

Kubota Tractor Corporation has partnered with E.J. Metals to offer a drop-in high pressure fire suppression system, which is performance-matched and hydraulically-powered by Kubota’s RTV900 Worksite Utility model. The new unit, named Assault Force 70, will provide fire departments, communities and municipalities across the United States with a low-cost quick-response unit designed to respond to a diverse range of fire situations. The Assault Force 70’s state-of-the-art high pressure unit uses a fraction of the water volume versus lower pressure systems, resulting in better run times and less damage to property. Using biodegradable Class A foam at a two percent mix rate, the unit runs for a minimum of 13 minutes at continuous full-discharge using only 70 gallons of water.
