Tanker Design #7 - 1,500 gallon Brush Tanker - Winburne, PA

By President Mark Davis
January 30, 2020

Winburne Fire Company Brush Tanker 18 out of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania carries 1500 gallons and has a CET Pump that flows 700 gpm using a 6-inch suction. The 1990 Harsco 5-ton rig carries a 2100-gallon dump tank and is outfitted with a 4-inch direct tank fill, a 4-inch tank-to-pump line, and a 10-inch square dump valve. Much of the design of the brush tanker was based on information gained through the GBW YouTube Channel videos of various 2-hour drills around the country.

The fire company acquired the truck as a Department of Defense vehicle through Pennsylvania's department of conservation and natural resources. The company then purchased the tank through a state grant program and most all of the remaining work was completed "in-house" for about $1,000.

Many thanks to Deputy Chief Bobby Dunlap for sharing the photos and info about the brush tanker. We always enjoy seeing local success stories.
