Capital Equipment Contribution

The Bethune and RM of Dufferin #190 Volunteer Fire Department and the Lumsden and District Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank Superior Forklift and Nutrien, for their recent donation of a side-by-side wildland firefighting unit. The apparatus will be shared between the neighbouring departments and may be deployed in either service area when needed. The addition of this unit will allow firefighters from Lumsden and Bethune to access areas where a full-size fire truck cannot go.
The custom Kioti Mechron side-by-side from Superior Forklift has been built to combat wildland fires, rescue victims, and to move firefighting personnel into hard to reach areas. It is powered by a powerful three-cylinder diesel engine and has been fitted with a full suspension, spring loaded, heavy duty track system to maneuver through the toughest of terrain. The hose reel with electric rewind comes with an option of 50ft of 1″ hose or 100ft of %” hose. The unit carries 70 gallons of water and an integrated Class A foam system which is piped to the 5.5 horsepower Honda pump. The tank has a large port for quick refilling off a fire truck or water tanker. A custom lighting package has been installed to alert the public and identify the machine as a responding unit in the fire department’s fleet.
Brian Weisbrod is the President and co-owner of Superior Forklift Ltd. He, along with co-owners Larry Geni and Sid Hurrell, started the business in 2001. The business began with a 200 square foot shop in Regina with the co-owners as the only employees and has expanded to a shop that covers 2.2 acres with additional branches in Saskatoon and Winnipeg and over 40 employees. Superior Forklift is committed to excellence in all business operations. They are locally owned and managed and committed to the growing province of Saskatchewan.
Superior Forklift offers several services. Repair and maintenance of heavy equipment, truck and trailer safety inspections, repair and maintenance of docks and doors, sweeping of parking lots, repair and maintenance of Olympia ice machines are just of few.
Superior also offers several product lines including Blue Giant, Genie, Hyundai, Kioti, Load Lifter, Olympia, Unicarriers, Wacker Neuson and most recently Cub Cadet.
Nutrien has an office in Lumsden and has been part of the community for many years. They work in partnership with local organizations to protect, grow and enrich communities where they operate. Thank you to Gord Emperingham and his team at Nutrien for their support.
Thank You for this generous capital equipment donation.
