After a pause in events due to COVID-19, FDIC International is back, and Toyne will be exhibiting at the event once again. FDIC International is one of the largest fire industry expos in the world and is hosted in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Iowa-based fire apparatus manufacturer will have a booth at the Indiana Convention Center from August 5-7. At the booth, attendees will be greeted with two customized Toyne demo apparatus, an aerial, and a PRV (Priority Response Vehicle) XL.
“We’re eager to return to FDIC and demonstrate our customization capabilities and connect with the thousands of industry professionals that attend this event,” said Michael Schwabe, President of Toyne, Inc. “Being present at this large industry stage–with our custom-built PRV and aerial apparatus–allows us to show what Toyne stands for and how our apparatus help others perform at their highest level while taking the call.”
The first apparatus Toyne is displaying at FDIC is a fully customized PRV XL. This PRV was built around a Spartan Metro Star EMFD chassis with a 10” raised roof. Powering this highly capable apparatus is a 450-horsepower Cummins engine and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission. The demo apparatus has a 1,000-gallon UPF tank, an enclosed 1,750 GPM side-mount Hale Qmax XS pump, and an Akron Deckmaster 2440 monitor for fire suppression. The PRV XL also boasts Toyne’s customized storage solutions.
The main attraction at the company’s booth, however, will be a Toyne Tailored Aerial apparatus. Mounted on a Spartan Metro Star MFD Chassis, this aerial has seating for up to six firefighters and also boasts a 10” raised roof. The powertrain consists of a Cummins ISL 450-horsepower engine and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission. Other customizations include a 75-foot rear mount LTC steel ladder with an Akron remote-controlled monitor. The aerial has two independently controlled out and down type outrigger systems. Water is stored in a 500-gallon UPF tank and pumped at 2,000 gallons per minute with its Hale Qmax pump.
Toyne will have their demo units on display at booth #2039 in the Indiana Convention Center. Representatives of Toyne will be at the booth, ready to answer any questions about the demo apparatus, Toyne’s capabilities, and how the company can meet the needs of fire departments.
