Two years ago, the Waterax line of products joined our stable. Waterax best known for the "MARK-3" (or Wajax) fire pump and the "Wildfire" product name. This has given us access to some of the highest quality and best known wildland fire equipment out there. We are steadily expanding our offering of their products to great public acceptance. Pricing has been attractive and delivery time excellent.
Another change is the addition of numerous accessories from Scotty Plastics. This Vancouver Island based company, in business since 1952, is known world-wide for its fishing, marine, outdoor and firefighting products. The Scotty Fire division produces many items made primarily of glass-reinforced engineering grade nylon (Ny-Glass). They are lightweight, durable and very economical for the budget conscious. Popular Scotty products include waterthiefs, 3-way valves and pistol grip ball shutoffs.
Mark-3 Fire Pump
It is called the "Mark-3®", but you may know it as the "Wajax pump", or the "Wildfire MK 3". Although it roots go back to 1925, the Mark-3 actually first appeared in 1964. Since that time it has been the pump of choice for forest fire crews around North America. Today, it is not hard to find Mark-3's that have been in service for more than 30 years.
The Mark-3 pump is appropriate for demanding situations where higher pressures are required while maintaining flow rates. The high compression 2 stroke engine requires a fit and experienced operator to meet the physical operational demands. This pump is for professionals. It is not recommended for casual or "civilian" operation. It is a serious pump.
