Ex-Military Tanker

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources obtained this five-ton ex-military tanker though the military/U.S. Forest Service cooperative surplus program, according to Dave Schiller, CAFM, fleet, safety and materials manager for the department.

Upfit work was relatively minor and done in-house. The DNR uses it as a water tanker to get water to the frontline folks fighting fires. What’s particularly useful is the high ground clearance and all-wheel-drive, which enables the vehicle to get closer to the fire than typical road trucks, Schiller said.
