Watch our Chief Engineer, Jeff Sadler, talk about the BB-4 Diesel high-pressure fire pump and MARK-3 portable fire pump at FDIC.

When fires occur in remote locations such as wildland forests and mountainous regions, you need a lightweight, robust and compact portable pump, which will allow you to relocate quickly while minimizing fatigue. The MARK-3®, with its unmatched power-to-weight ratio and two-stroke engine, is your ideal solution.

The MARK-3® portable fire pump is considered to be an essential piece of equipment used by wildland firefighters across North America and around the world. The upgraded MARK-3® successfully passed the USDA Forest Service 100 hours endurance test in San Dimas on 08/04/15 and has been requalified under QPL Number 274-001.

Ask for the real McCoy: the MARK-3®, recognized across the firefighting industry as the ultimate lightweight, portable pump.

The renowned BB-4® by WATERAX is now available in Diesel and has been officially listed on the USFS Type 6 Fire Apparatus specifications! Compatible with Type 4, Type 5 and Type 6 brush trucks, it is strong enough to operate as a source pump for tandem and parallel pumping, it is also optimal for direct attack firefighting, remote watering, sprinkler systems, and is a popular choice for slip-on units.

The WATERAX quick release clamp provided on the BB-4® pump lets you replace a damaged pump end in the field with minimal equipment downtime. The 4-stage pump end on the BB-4® is identical to the pump end on the MARK-3® unit, which greatly reduces your spare parts inventory and improves your ability to respond to unforeseen equipment damage. When building your next wildland fire engine, choose the name that wildland firefighters trust the most: WATERAX.
