Toyne PRV XL Edition Being Unveiled at 2016 FDIC Event
BREDA, Iowa - At the 2015 Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) event, there was quite a buzz in the Toyne booth. The Iowa-based fire apparatus manufacturer introduced attendees to their brand new Priority Response Vehicle (PRV) and has since been named one of the ‘Top 9 Most Interesting Firefighting Products of 2015’ by FireRescue1.com. During this year’s event, which takes place at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN on April 18th through the 23rd, Toyne will unveil the PRV XL Edition.
The PRV XL Edition, which boasts an additional 87.25 cubic feet of compartment space than the PRV, also includes the versatile pump panel that is available as a ‘slide out and down,’ slide out tool board or stationary mounted in a compartment or the cab, allowing departments to select the pump panel placement that best fits their needs. The PRV XL, just like the PRV, has been designed to do the work of two apparatus, as well as to be the first apparatus on the scene.
“We’re looking forward to displaying the new PRV XL Edition,” said Mike Schwabe, President of Toyne. “The PRV has gone over very well for us and we continue to receive great feedback from fire departments on the enclosed pump panel options and maximized storage space.” The apparatus, which is a Toyne Demo, features a welded stainless steel body, Spartan Metro X MFD 10” raised roof cab and chassis, UPF 1,000 gallon tank and a Hale Q-Max 2,000 gpm pump. Schwabe went on to say, “If FDIC 2016 is anything like 2015, we anticipate being very busy in the booth again this year.”
In addition to featuring the PRV XL, Toyne will also be displaying a custom top mount pumper built for Sublette, IL Fire Protection District. Sublette’s Toyne Tailored Apparatus features a bolted painted stainless steel body, UPF 1,000 gallon tank, Hale Q-Max 1,500 gpm pump and a Foam Pro 2001 Class A foam system with aTFT XFT-NJ monitor with a TFT 18” manual Extend-A-Gun. Built on a Spartan Metro Star LFD 10” raised roof cab and chassis, their apparatus is powered by a Cummins ISL engine and Allison 3000 EVS transmission. An Onan 6kw hydraulic generator and Fire Research telescoping lights will assist Sublette firefighters when on the call. Sublette is slated to accept delivery of their new Toyne after FDIC 2016.
During FDIC, attendees can also get a sneak peek of the chassis for Tully, NY Fire District 1’s new Toyne Pumper. Their Spartan Metro Star MFD 20" raised cab and chassis will be featured in Spartan’s booth. Tully NY’s Toyne Top Mount Pumper is currently in production, and is expected to be delivered summer 2016. The Tully Fire District proudly protects 4,500 people living in an area of 26 square miles, and currently operates out of two stations. Information on Tully’s apparatus will be made available at FDIC.
During FDIC 2016, attendees can see the Toyne PRV XL Edition Demo and the Sublette, IL Top Mount Pumper at Toyne booth 4820, while the chassis for Tully, NY’s Toyne Pumper will be on display in Spartan booth 8205.
