Water Cannon & MP-400 / I needed a way to protect the rear of my home from the Santa Anna winds pushing a brush fire up the hill. My wife is always home during the day, while I am at work. My fear has been that a fire would happen when I am gone and my wife isn't strong enough to operate the fire hose and nozzle by herself. We bought the Water Cannon and have it set up all summer and fall. It has a large base and is very stable for her to run the the 1.5 inch nozzle by herself. It sprays very far down the hill( at least 80 feet) No fires yet, only practiced a few times so far.

MP-400v.35 / Works great. Good instructions. Hose is real fire fighting hose. Solid rubber tires are nice. Very high quality unit.The stainless steel water manifold is a beauty. It is a really nice piece. I got the adapter to tow it behind my atv that works good.
MP-400v.2 / It is an expensive fire pump system. I got the letter that my fire insurance was not being renewed and decided it was time for my own fire system. The Honda Motor is easy to start ( nice about Hondas) The cart has solid rubber tires (good to not have to worry about flats during an emergency) . The frame is all heavy duty steel and it is powder coated which looks nice. Has real fire department fittings and accessories. Comes complete even with oil. Shipper delivered it on time.
I ordered the (MP-400v.35) pump and it arrived 3 days later on a pallet ready to go. Complete system. Had to add gas and it was ready to pump. The Honda gx390 engine is huge. The hoses are easy to pull off the hose reel very quickly, but they don't go back on quite as fast : ) I rolled the cart out to my pool, dumped the suction hose into the pool, poured water into the pump top and started the Honda. Quick and easy.

MP-200 / Nice little fire pump. Comes with everything you need. Good manual. Quick shipment.
3 Point Fire Tractor Pump / The skid 3 point mount is a heavy frame that comes ready to use. A nice feature is that the Honda motor is mounted on a mount that slides out of a trailer hitch so you can pull motor off the frame in a second to keep dirt bags from walking off with it when your tractor isn't fighting fires.

MP-400v.35 / It took 2 weeks to arrive when they said it would take 1. ( UPS sent it to Texas instead of Los Angeles) Once it arrived it was easy to get off the shipping pallet and roll into the garage. The hoses are rolled onto hose reels that make it easy to drag them off and hook up. The hurricane sprinklers where packed well under the pump and are very strong. Overall it is a very thorough pump kit.

MP-400v.2 / Fire fighting water pump mounted on a cool roll around cart. Well thought out package. Seems to have all of the pieces that you would need for fire protecton in a wildfire.
Orange County, CA
MP-200XT / The pump arrived on time with everything I had ordered as expected. The Honda engine is great. Starts every time. Very happy.
MP-400v.45 / 12 Hurricane Roof Sprinklers / The pump and hurricane 110 roof sprinklers were packed good and very well built. Hope to leave them in my garage and not need them. The pump and sprinklers are very large and spray a lot of water.
Beverly Hills, CA
MP-400 / This pump does a good job. It makes about 120 psi and does the job. With the 1.5" fire hose and nozzle it easily clears my 2 story house. I need more hose that I will be ordering soon.
MP-400v.35 & 6 Hurricane Sprinklers / Powerful fire system. It does what is says it should. It sprays the wet stuff on the hot stuff. Nice roll around unit to get to the pool in case of a fire.
MP-400v.6 /We purchased the pump system with 600 feet of fire hose and 3 attack lines to protect 3 houses( myself and 2 neighbors houses )The fire pump is put together well. Has all pieces needed. Not cheap, but seems to be good quality. Time will tell.
Los Angeles, CA
MP-400v.2 /Our HOA decided to provide some fire protection to a vulnerable side of our property that sits on top of a steep hill with brush that tries to burn every year. The MP-400 is a big pump and the Honda motor is very powerful. Easy to prime it and get it started.
San Diego, CA
MP-400v.2 / I needed it in a hurry( fire season) and it arrived fast. Very easy to roll the cart around. Well balanced and it is strong. The motor is a Honda and it is powerfull. Not easy to pull start, but it does start on every attempt. Should have got the electric start version.
San Diego, CA
MP-400v.45 / Pros: Good product. Complete. Made in USA. Free shipping was quick. Honda motor. Hose reels are trick. Well balanced.Solid rubber tires.
Cons: Expensive. Little heavy.
Would buy again.
MP-200XT / After the 2nd LA brush fire in our neighbor hood I decided to bite the bullet. The MP-200 pump was not cheap, but the quality is good. It arived via UPS Freight on a palett in 1 piece ( although UPS was a day late) I hope to never have to use it.
L.A. County, CA
MP-400v.45 / This thing really puts out the water! We are also running some of the large 100 foot spraying roof sprinklers with it. I filled them with concrete to weigh them down. It is a nice and complete kit. Packed well.
MP-400x5 Electric Start with 500 feet of fire hose. My wife and I bought the pump during the black friday sale. It looks great. Haven't used it yet, but it should do the job. We also bought 8 of the hurricane sprinklers for the roof. The water manifold that the sprinklers hook up to is very cool. The shut off ball valves are smooth and easy to operate.

We have a cabin in the mountains in Idaho that is very secluded. The fire department is 30 minutes away and we have no city water for many miles. We do have a small river that flows through our property, so we bought one of your MP-200's for our own fire protection. I really like to be self sufficient. I hope to never have to use your pump, but we are ready.
Bought one of the 13 horsepower Honda 400 pumps with the 2 fire hose reels and have been practicing with it. Has lots of pressure and will shoot about 100 feet down the hill or up a tree (we are at the top of the hill) Every year or two we have a fire around here. Makes us so nervous, so we decided to get one of your pumps to have another option. Have the sprinklers mounted on the roof so we just have to hook up the hoses and hopefully are good to go.
We purchased one of your MP-400 cart systems last year and have been very happy. This fire pump is very sturdy, easy to move around and well designed. This has been a big investment for us, but seems to be worth it. Watching our neighboring city's in California burn down is what motivated us. I thought that you should hear this from us.
Living in Southern CA, we have some bad Santa Anna winds in the fall and winter, and we are in a canyon with a lot of brush( which burns very hot and fast) We bought a mp400 pump a couple of months ago, and like it a lot. We keep it covered in the garage and have a pool for its water supply. My wife and I have been practicing setting it up and using it. Hopefully this will only ever be a drill.

In November 2018 I got a MP-400 from you. It is a nice piece. The set up is pretty easy after you understand how. The instructions are good. It primes quickly and the pressure builds very fast. You have to be holding onto the nozzle when you start it or it will shoot around the yard blasting the house and trying to kill me ( I found this out the hard way) Now I know!
