Not Cookie-Cutters

See below for our truck specifications and ideas for customization on truck and firefighting options. 


There is no build or customization we'd shy away from. 

Custom bodies, warning lights, compartmentalization packages, pump and water tank packages... If you want it, we can build it.


No matter what, we always incorporate high quality off-road features and firefighting gear to make your job safer, easier and more effective.

Our goal is to build brush trucks that are durable, will keep you safe, and will put out wildfires in the most demanding environments.

- A Message From Monty,

Owner and Founder

At General Fire Equipment, you won’t only get what you want; you’ll get the best quality at a fair price.


With over 60 years of experience, I and my team have the passion and expertise to thoroughly and efficiently serve our customers, and ensure they’re never disappointed.

We have decades of firefighting experience and over 60 years of fabrication experience.

20 years ago, I had one idea: Let's build an incredible brush truck that can go where others can't.

Today, we've been fortunate enough to serve dozens and dozens of fire chiefs and fire stations, all across the US.


With a staff of highly qualified welders and fabricators, we confidently ensure the quality of all our builds.  Quality is something we all strongly believe in, and it has been at the heart of General Fire Equipment from day one.


I started this company to serve a need, and produce an excellent product.  We've been so fortunate to have accomplished both of these goals, and we look forward to being able to serve you!

Browse our photos, read the custom/specs, then give us a call.  We'll make your dream a reality.

Thanks for all that you do,

- Monty
