Value and Performance: Elliptical Tanker
Bulldog Fire & Emergency Apparatus carries the full line of KME Elliptical tankers. These fire trucks range from the simple water hauler with no pump, to the fully loaded tanker tank with pump, preconnects and hose storage areas. As with all of KME’s units, the tanks and apparatus used are designed to meet and exceed NFPA 1901 requirements. The manufacturer’s top priority is keeping firefighters safe on the job and arming them with the apparatus response to the best of their ability. KME Elliptical tanks ensure safe operations whether driving the unit full, partially full, or empty of water. The tanks used are designed to provide rapid filling and dumping of water for fast response.

KME provides a wide variety of tank options for your new Elliptical tanker. Stainless steel tanks are available in a single wall brushed, painted, or double wall mirror finish. Poly tanks come in bare, painted or mirror wrapped finishes. Fiberglass tanks come in color injected, painted or mirror wrapped.
