Grain Cart-Mounted Fire Fighter
Mounting a water tank/pump on a grain cart may be the best protection for expensive combines and equipment during harvest season when dry conditions create a fire hazard.
The Guardian Grain Cart Fire Fighter, built by F/S Manufacturing in West Fargo, offers that insurance, says Bryan Gefroh, general manager for the company. If equipment or a field catches on fire, the grain cart is typically nearby. Mounted on the side or back of the cart, the 5.5-hp Honda engine and transfer pump pumps water from the 150-gal. tank for 13 min. through a 100-ft. hose that sprays up to 40 ft.
The Fire Fighter is easy to operate, Gefroh says. Just turn on the switch and pull the cord. Use the quick-release hose wrap to access the kink-resistant PVCS hose. At the end of the season, empty out the water through the tank drain.
Retail price is $2,800 (not including optional rear and side mount kits). The Grain Cart Fire Fighter and fire control units for other types of equipment are available through dealers listed on the F/S Manufacturing website.
