The WATERAX MINI-STRIKER® pump pairs a reliable single stage pump end with the Honda 4-stroke 2.5 HP engine to achieve pressures of up to 85 PSI (5.9 BAR) and offer volume supply of up to 68 GPM (257 L/Min). Extremely portable and lightweight – under 20 pounds – this tiny powerhouse performs well when used by itself or in tandem with other pumps, and is a very popular choice for entry level slip-on applications. It is also particularly suited to some of the latest fire control techniques where small, lightweight equipment is a requirement. The widely-available Honda 4-stroke 2.5 HP engine makes for ease of operation and engine parts sourcing.
The WATERAX MARK-3® is the core of superior water handling systems upon which specifications and standards are built. Pairing a high performance 4-stage pump end and a Rotax 10 hp engine, this impressive workhorse can achieve pressures of up to 380 PSI (26.2 BAR) and flow rates reaching 98 GPM (371 L/Min). It is designed to withstand the rigors and extreme conditions of wildland firefighting and is the most trusted and time-tested pump in the industry. Appreciated for its ability to maintain high pressure over extraordinary distances and elevation, it weighs less than 60 lbs and is one-person portable − a critical attribute out in the field.
Ther WATERAX quick release clamp provided on the MARK-3® pump lets you replace a damaged pump end in the field with minimal equipment downtime. The pump mating and clamp mechanism is identical to the mating on the MR-B2 and BB-4® units, which means you can quickly swap the MARK-3® pump end for a higher volume B-2 pump end as needed for supply or structure firefighting.
