KME® Fire Apparatus, a subsidiary of REV Group®, and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, is pleased to announce that Santa Clara County (California) Fire Department has taken delivery of a KME Tractor-Drawn AerialCat® (TDA) to serve the city of Cupertino.

The new 101’ TDA will join 33 other KME units currently in service within Santa Clara County. The county chose KME’s new drop frame TDA body featuring large compartment capacity, redesigned transverse storage, and lower ground ladder storage. The new body design also allows for lower tiller cab travel heights without sacrificing ground ladder storage.

Other features include:

  • KME Severe Service™ X-MFD cab with 10” raised roof
  • Hendrickson STEERTEK™ NXT front axle
  • Cummins X15 600 HP engine
  • Allison 4000 EVS™ transmission
  • Hale DSD 1,500 GPM single stage pump
  • 300-gallon water tank
  • 500 lb unrestricted wet or dry tip load rating
  • 14’ jack stance
  • -7 degree low to 80-degree elevation rating
  • 90-degree jack knife capability

“Santa Clara County Fire Department has long standing relationship with KME built on trust, communication and a quality product,” said Brian Glass, Assistant Fire Chief of the Santa Clara County Fire Department. “We look forward to placing into service the agency’s first Tractor Drawn Aerial. The maneuverability and operational capabilities that the TDA brings to the agency allows us to respond to areas that were previously inaccessible to our current trucks.”
