Wildland Urban Interface (WUI)

Sutphen Wildland units are the perfect mix of form and function.


Sutphen Wildland units are the perfect mix of form and function. These trucks are designed with a short overall length, and un-matched angles of approach and departure exceeding 20 degrees. This special attention to chassis design allows them to operate in the roughest of terrain, or on a busy highway.

Engineered to operate in both the back-country and the ever increasing wildland urban interface, these trucks are equipped for stationary high volume pumping, and pump and roll. Cab and body compartmentation is maximized for the storage of both crew equipment and the firefighting tools you need to handle any size situation.
