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 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.
