Based on voice of the customer, the HS was engineered from the ground up to meet the needs of both the crew operating and the crew maintaining the apparatus. The result was a design that not only meets the performance needs of firefighters, but also the ease-of-maintenance needs of service technicians. The engine can be easily accessed without needing to tilt the cab by utilizing two rear, power-operated, sliding compartments. Each rear-sliding compartment holds up to 500 lbs of equipment and the equipment does not have to be removed to operate the sliders. Furthermore, critical fluids can be checked via access panels in the compartments.
The new HS chassis, cab and body is your solution to meet the personnel space and storage needs of your crew while also addressing the service needs of your fleet personnel.
