It's Ferrara's generic Super Pumper. 




It's Ferrara's 5500gpm industrial pumper. More info here:  https://www.ferrarafire.com/category/inundator-super-pumper/

Now we can begin speculating on who will get this piece.  E207, the engine company paired with the original Super Pumper when it was disbanded in July, 1975?

Does anyone have images of the satellites Operating at any box in the last 10 years ? The reason I ask is because for the money they are seriously under utilized. I have seen several jobs where they could have made an impact , but just sat there. Why?  5 Units ?

How do you mean "operating"? I've seen them dozens of times in person and in videos setting up manifolds or stretching large diameter supply line at big jobs. Anyway, even if they aren't as frequently used as other units, the apparatus is relatively cheap, with no pump, stick, or platform. They're pretty much a hose wagon with some extra gear suited to delivering big water to big fires. They also aren't manned, so as FDNY units go, they don't cost much at all.

Hi Bk I guess what I mean is using that Huge Deck Gun or Deluge Gun . I remember the Satellites operating at the Brooklyn Navy Job Multiple , it got so hot there the stream Did not reach the buildings. But not much since.

l knew you meant with the deck gun in use, l seldom see vids. or pics. of them in use, l don't think they are used that way very often.

The most recent edition of FAJ said the industrial pumper will have a 1000 gallon foam tank and carry LDH like a Satellite. Could this be finally replacing the foam tender at Engine 238?
