PUMP UP THE VOLUME. Select from

Waterous or Hale pumps with capacities from 750 to 1,500 gpm in either top- or side-mount configurations. Multiple discharge outlets

deliver water—or foam—where you need it, no matter the access. Poly water tanks have a low center of gravity and are available in 500 to 1500 gallon sizes.

ERGONOMIC CONTROLS FOR GO-TIME EFFICIENCY.

The pump panel on all Contender pumpers delivers a don’t-think-twice operation when you don’t have a second to waste. Controls are ergonomically grouped to improve performance, reduce training time and simplify maintenance. There is also an electronic pressure governor for more precise control.

MORE STRENGTH, LESS WEIGHT.

Each Contender pumper body is constructed of durable yet lightweight aluminum or stainless steel for extra strength. The bodies are engineered by Pierce to stand up to the rigors of use and abuse.

A MATERIAL DIFFERENCE IN PLUMBING.

All Contender pumpers feature stainless steel plumbing with brass and flexible hose. Our “belled end” fittings allow for welded joints that are stronger and less prone to leakage than threaded pipe fittings.

FOAM FOR EVEN GREATER EFFECTIVENESS.

Foam systems deliver improved performance, faster knockdown, reduced water consumption and safer operation for firefighters. Outfit your Contender with the Pierce Husky ® foam system. You can also choose the Hercules compressed air foam system, which is up to five times more effective than water alone. And, with 30 percent more range, firefighters can be both effective and safe. Or opt for Foam Pro, Elkhart or Akron single or dual agent foam systems.

A PROVEN DESIGN FOR TOUGH CHALLENGES.

When you acquire one Contender custom pumper, you acquire thousands of Contenders. Our proprietary chassis design incorporates everything Pierce learned making thousands of trucks that have responded to countless incidents.

300 horsepower — with up to 400 available — make your custom Contender as responsive as it is rugged. A 270 to 340 amp alternator provides plenty of juice to power a variety of systems. And you can specify bumper extensions from 16" to 22" with integrated hose trays, front bumper discharge and front suction to fit your needs.

Your response starts long before you reach the scene. The custom Contender offers a roomy cab, with no cross-tunnel, so the crew and command can work together. Seat four to eight comfortably. An air-ride driver’s seat and air conditioning add comfort. A tilt-telescoping steering wheel and large

west coast mirrors give you better control and better vision. There's even an available EMS cabinet to safely and securely store medical equipment.

The cab is available in either flat or a 12" raised roof configuration. A two-tone cab paint option is available in multiple colors.

SOMETIMES THE BEST ROAD ISN’T A ROAD.

In fact, sometimes the road isn’t much more than a rut. But even in extreme conditions, you can carry the fight to the fire with this all-wheel drive, Ford F550, 325- horsepower turbo diesel Contender brush truck.
