Q. What model of Indian Pump should I use?

A. The nature of your application or usage dictates the proper fire pump to use. In particular, weight, space and durability  are among the factors to consider. Where weight is a consideration, the poly or vinyl models are ideal. The pump action is metal for durability, while the tank itself is lightweight polyurethane or vinyl. In addition, the vinyl also stores extremely well, while taking up very little space. Stainless steel and galvanized are the workhorses, built for extreme usage applications.

Q. Where can I buy replacement parts for my Indian pack?

A. Rawhide Fire Hose offers a full line of replacement parts for your portable fire pump. Contact Team Rawhide for more information.

Q. Who makes the “Indian Fire Pump”?
