  • Introducing: The BEAST Tools

    The BEAST (Blanchat External / Interior Attack Structure Tools) allows firefighters to safely make an interior attack from the outside. This eliminates having to open up a structure or enter a hostile environment, decreasing flashover risk.

What Our Customers Say

  • Please tell Scott and everyone that worked on our trucks that they did an extremely great job. The trucks were received by the firefighters like kids with new toys at Christmas!!!! We have already used Brush 2 on a grass fire yesterday evening and it performed as expected (GREAT),  "The workmanship and fine details that went into each unit was above and beyond". Again pass the word on to everyone and look forward to working with Blanchat in the future.

  • Being 58 years old and having been a volunteer for 22+ years I totally agree with you on the issue of being able to ride ON the truck rather than walking along the side or behind. I absolutely hate driving a squad at a grass fire with a fellow firefighter walking somewhere beside my truck- not knowing exactly where he is at all times and fearing that I might run over him. I also agree with the fast moving grass fire being uncontrollable with the walk along method. Good luck in your effort to change the "good old ways" of fighting wildland fires and hopefully we can move on to the 21st Century.

  • Over the last couple of years we have shown the "Attack 1" you built for us to lots of Emergency Responders and other folks. They are always amazed at the different kinds of missions it is capable of and quality of workmanship. The apparatus has really made a difference in what we can provide to our patrons.
