Hale’s Qmax-XS pump’s high water delivery rate to knock down large fires, proven reliability based on the impressive track record of the Qmax pump, and small, innovative design gives your department all that it is looking for in a pump.


• Generates NFPA 1901 rated flows up to 2,250 GPM (8,515 LPM) from draft
• Performance range of 0 to 3000 GPM based on available engine power and water source
• Large suction inlets and full flow waterways cut friction loss and deliver maximum pressure at the discharge valves. Low friction losses allow flows of up to 2,600 GPM on 4-inch pump body openings (from a positive water source)
• Dual cutwaters. Smooth water flow delivery to the cast pump body with no twists, turns or restrictions that add turbulence
• Designed to use 6” suction Master Intake Valves (MIV) which have no impact to single hose 1,500 GPM rating
• Strength in design. A one piece upper pump body minimizes potential piping leaks and makes maintenance and service easy
• Innovative one-piece compact body profile. Qmax-XS design minimizes piping requirements and leaves more room for storage compartment space on your apparatus.
• Hale auto-lube system force feeds lubrication system eliminating the need for second packing or seal arrangement
• Standard G gearbox is capable of handling 16,000 lb. feet of torque (Optional K gearbox capable of handling 18,500 lb. feet of torque)
• Also available with optional SmartCAFS
