the ultimate system for
off-road firefighting

The next generation Articulating Multi-Purpose Truck (AMT) model from ARDCO proudly carries the gold standard for off-road vehicles. Since 1955, ARDCO has built the most powerful and rugged all-terrain vehicles, with the ability to tackle countless difficult situations.


With it’s power-packed design, the AMT is able to get to locations where others would fail. When you combine that with the efficiency and compact design of Chief Fire's equipment, the world’s most advanced off-road modular firefighting system becomes a reality.

what does that mean for the firefighting industry? We’re glad you asked.

With complete customization of the back-end modular platform, users can hand select the most useful products for the required emergency situation. Easily switch attachments for maximum adaptability.

Is there a limit to the amount of equipment configurations?

Due to the modular design, the AMT can be equiped with the specific items needed to handle any scenario. Lack of water? No problem. Add multiple 2,000 GPM Otter™ Pumps and Phoenix skid-based monitors. Need foam proportioning or boost pumps? No problem. Add them on to the chassis.

How do you remove the apparatus
from the back of the AMT?

Each AMT model includes a built-in crane at the front of

the platform and each Chief Fire apparatus has top lifting rings

built into their frame. Simply utilize the crane to lift the fire apparatus off the rear chassis and place it where you need it.
