The MINI-STRIKER® is available as a portable pump, a vehicle mount unit and now as a firefighting skid deck to build your own skid unit.

Initial attacks and spot patrols on fires, especially rural, field, forest, and brush fires, as well as prescribed burns, are often best fought with a highly mobile vehicle, one that can reach the fire ground operations on rough terrain and remote areas.

Many urban and urban-wildlife interface fires are best faced, even if only for initial attack, with the versatility and maneuverability of a skid unit on an ATV or pickup truck.
