REV Group has announced the integration of the EZ Trac® hydraulic all-wheel drive (AWD) system as an option for fire apparatus manufactured by the REV Fire Group, which includes the E-ONE, KME, and Ferrara brands.
The EZ Trac System provides the performance of hydraulic power while maintaining factory ground clearance, overall height, and the turning radius of a typical two-wheel drive vehicle. This is a critical innovation for fire departments in demanding terrain, such as Chautauqua Fire District in New York who recently installed the system on a KME Severe ServiceTM Custom Pumper, and to the Cree Nation of Waskaganish, Canada, who is installing EZ Trac System on their new E-ONE HP75 ladder truck.
The benefits of the EZ Trac hydraulic all-wheel drive system include:
“The EZ Trac hydraulic all-wheel drive system is an alternative to mechanical drive systems and does not raise the cab height like typical front drive axles do. It is also a great option for aerials, providing all-wheel drive without raising the travel height,” said Joe Hedges, Product Manager at E-ONE.
The EZ Trac hydraulic all-wheel drive system is available now through the REV Fire Group. To view a video demonstration of the EZ Trac System, visit: https://goo.gl/bRvAW5
