On December 29, 2011 Schuyler Hose Co. placed its new tanker in full service.  TA-574 is a 2011 E-One Water Master Vacuum Tanker on an International 7400 chassis with seating for a crew of two.  The tanker is equipped with a 1250 gpm Hale Pump, a Vacuum Pump and 3500 gallon aluminum water tank.

Water Master vacuum tankers can be filled at up to 2000 gallons per minute without a Class A Engine at the fill site using its unique self-filling vacuum system  The tanker can self-fill from up to three suction inlets using almost any alternative water source including ponds, rivers, lakes, ditches and swimming pools.

TA-574 is designated as the second due apparatus for all rural responses in our district and can also be used as a supply engine at any major village fires.  Two pre-connected attack lines are also available in the event a back up safety line is needed.  Equipment carried on TA-574 includes:

  • 3500 gallon portable pond
  • Turbo Draft
  • Suction Hose
  • Various sized adapters
  • 500’ of 5” LDH
