Design and Function
The DFI tanker package is designed to maximize efficiency, while minimizing maintenance cost. The fully hydraulic system is designed to maximize the chassis life by operating the engine at a low RPM, while operating the water pump at the required RPM.
All air operated spray heads are independently operated thus allowing the operator the ability to optimize flow, direction, and water usage. The full 3” plumbing allows for a maximum water volume and performance. All DFI Systems are designed to self fill as well as be filled from a fire hydrant and/or secondary pumping system.
