Maintainer Custom Bodies (MCB) is proud to announce the introduction of a new body to its line of rescue and emergency vehicles. The Spitfire is a smaller 9’ Quick Attack body manufactured differently from MCB’s existing Quick Attack models. The Spitfire will make its debut at the FDIC International 2019 in Indianapolis April 11-13.
“The Spitfire is an amalgamation of a Maintainer Service Body and the MCB Quick Attack,” said MCB National Sales Manager Tom Leckband. “The result is a smaller, economical, yet high-quality vehicle designed to get to the scene and apply water or foam before things escalate.”
The Spitfire on display at FDIC will feature a custom 425-gallon water tank in the center deck along with a C.E.T. Fire Pumps skid system featuring a Honda 20 HP gas pump, Kubota 21 HP diesel pump, Trident “Foamate” foam system, Hannay booster reels, a control panel with pump and engine controls and tank level gauges.
The compartments on each side of the body are 54” tall, 23” deep, and are secured with swing doors with gas springs, EPDM automotive weatherstripping, and 3-point D-ring compression latches. LED strip lights and adjustable shelving will help crews be efficient on the scene.
Another Spitfire configuration will be available that features a 300-gallon tank, allowing for a transverse compartment nearest to the cab. The Spitfire is designed for Ford, Ram, or Chevrolet chassis.
“In addition to fire crews, we have also seen interest in this type of vehicle from the oil industry,” said Leckband. “Many private companies need to have fire prevention or suppression readily available. We will offer a service version without the emergency warning lights or sirens to accommodate that application.”
MCB invites you to see the Spitfire at FDIC Booth# 4957 in the Indiana Convention Center April 11-13, 2019. More details and specifications on the Spitfire, including a Video clip, are available online at: https://mcbfire.com/apparatus/quick-attack/spitfire-quick-attack/
