What is a Type 6 brush truck? A Type 3, Type 4, and Type 6 are what are considered “wildland engines” or “brush trucks.” These are the vehicles that respond to wildfires and have the ability to drive in rough terrain to respond to a fire or rescue. Wildland engines are specially designed for the technique of pump-and-roll.
What is a Type III brush truck? Brush Engines are pumper units used on grass fires and are specially adapted to fire fighting in rough (wildland) terrain where access is a problem and fire hydrants are few or non-existent.
How much does a Type 3 fire engine cost? The median price is around $71,000. You’ll find some more affordable options in this range. But as you can see, based on the median price, some of these fire trucks can still command an even higher price than younger models.
What do brush trucks carry? Brush trucks are dispatched to fight small grass fires and other types of small, outdoor fires. The brush trucks have a small tank of water and a pump feeding a small-diameter hose line. They also carry water extinguishers, shovels, and other equipment used by firefighters to fight grass fires.
