with the iron horse

During and especially after a forest fire, many people work extremely hard to handle hoses, pumps and other equipment, often in difficult terrain. Several local fire departments have found that the Iron Horse can be used for a variety of firefighting tasks. As a preventative measure, an Iron Horse with the right accessories can also be used by, for example, a forestry company when operating larger machinery in drier weather.


Essentially, the Iron Horse is an all-terrain tool carrier that can be equipped with a range of accessories and adaptations, creating the opportunity to leverage a basic investment for a variety of uses. In firefighting, there is a strong need for a mobile piece of equipment that can be quickly reconfigured for the situation at hand
