KIMTEK Unveils new FIRELITE Compact Wildfire UTV Skid Unit
Water and foam solution for UTV side-by-sides requiring no additional transport capacity
Orleans, VT; April 2016—KIMTEK® Corporation has just introduced the FCW-206 FIRELITE® Compact Wildfire UTV Skid Unit, the latest addition to its popular line of wildland fire skid units designed exclusively for UTV side-by-side vehicles. New for 2016, the Firelite FCW-206 maintains a small footprint base, just 48" wide by 34" long, enabling it to fit easily into larger UTV side-by-side cargo boxes with the tailgate closed. Ideal for first response UTVs that require no additional storage room or patient transport capacity, the FCW-206 is an ultra-compact yet powerful quick attack slip on fire skid.
Durable, tested components
KIMTEK's FCW-206 Compact unit comes equipped with the field-tested Darley® Davey 5.5 HP Honda® driven pump, Hannay® 4000 Series manual reel with booster hose, and an available 55 or 70 gallon tank. Perfect for rugged conditions, the FCW-206 is built on KIMTEK's signature all-aluminum chassis, recognized in the industry for superior strength and durability. Available options include Scotty® Around-the-Pump foam system with five-gallon foam cell and electric rewind option for the Hannay reel.
