Squad assigned engines remained 1000 GPM as the size of pump casing and valves in 2000 GPM models would take away from compartment space required for squad specific equipment. It is also the reason that hose-beds are different size and configuration  on the squad assigned engines.

The 2000 gpm would only be utilized in a large scale operation to relay water a great distance. Thatís the only way they would be able to utlize double the pump capacity. With squads and now possiblely HMTUís it makes sense to have the extra room as well as not wasting the money on something that will only ever Be used in pump testing. With only having 1st 2nd and 3rd due boxes they will be either on the scene or operating as a special unit. Operating in any of those positions would pretty much gaurentee you wonít be relay pumping

The 4 HM Engines have all their boxes up to a 5th alarm assignment
