The backpack hand pump is a valuable tool to quickly deliver water in many fire situations. It is the ideal firefighting water tank to suppress brush fires, grass fires and any other situation where a portable water source is needed, such as initial attack, hot spotting and mop-up operations on forest fires.
The WATERAX OT-4NX is a modernized poly backpack pump that was conceived with the comfort and safety of the user in mind. The tank is made of lightweight yet rugged UV-resistant polyethylene, making it easier to carry without compromising durability.
Carry as much as five gallons of water on your back.
The brass hand pump design features a forward grooved hand grip, a robust D-ring, which clips to shoulder straps, and a rear pistol grip that makes operating the pump easier on the wrist and requires less effort than standard hand pumps.
