What Sets Us Apart
by: Mike Curnutt

What sets BrushFighter apart from our competitors is quality. Many other manufacturers try to cut costs on components that can create critical problems with the long term service and operation of your apparatus. Cheap commercial valves, standard black steel piping are just some of the corners these builders cut. BrushFighter uses only stainless steel plumbing and brand name valves; Elkhart, Akron Brass, ect. BrushFighter also uses circuiting that does not interfere with the chassis wiring system, much like you would find on a standard pumper from your premier truck builders. Our brush truck specs are generated just like pumper specs from our quote writer and our manuals are detailed for each individual unit.

Providing the highest quality brush trucks and the best prices for you the customer, that's what BrushFighter does.
