The RANCHER® is a compact and lightweight skid unit designed for use on ATVs and small utility vehicles. It is commonly used in wildland-urban interface areas to rapidly access remote areas beyond the reach of standard skid units. The RANCHER® is designed for a variety of water-handling applications, such as spot-fire patrol, prescribed burns, mop-up operations, and general farm and rural community work. Easy to operate and maintain, it can effortlessly slide on and off a vehicle, as needed.
