There are badass fire trucks, and then there is the Bulldog 4x4 Extreme fire truck by Howe & Howe Technologies, Inc., which is on another level when it comes to its ability to fight even the deadliest of blazing brush fires.
The Bulldog 4x4 is an off-road beast of a brush truck that holds more than 2,000 gallons of water, making its water cannon look more like a piece of actual military artillery than an emergency response tool. Simply put, this firetruck can definitely get the most daunting of jobs done. But, don't just take our word for it.
Check out the video below to see exactly what this epic fire-fighting machine can really do.
As you can imagine, this state-of-the-art piece of heavy equipment can pretty much go anywhere that's required. It's all due to the American-made Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical 54" military Hemmit tires that lift the extreme brush truck's chassis more than two whole feet off of the ground. It definitely doesn't have your average ground clearance, that's for damn sure.
The 4x4 fire truck also has an 80-gallon tank to hold the diesel fuel that it needs to carry out those hardcore missions that most big trucks just aren't cut out for. Let's just say that you won't see your average volunteer fire department drive around and fight fires in this bad boy.
One YouTube commenter hit the nail on the head when he referred to the the Bulldog Extreme 4x4 as "the Imperial battle cruiser of firetrucks."
Which, for all you non-Star Wars fans out there, means that this firetruck is a big freakin' deal. But you probably already gathered as much.
