    Default CAFS wildland skids

    We recently were awarded a grant for a wildland skid for a brush truck that will be equipped with CAFS.

    Not knowing a lot about CAFS, I thought I'd get some input from the guys that might have experience with it in this application. Any thoughts or recommendations?

    Try Wildland Warehouse. Owner is a friend of mine.

    We have an Odin Foam Colt CAFS module on one of our type 6 engines, purchased in 2007. We havn't had one bit of trouble. It's simple to operate and has worked flawlessly. Not one complaint. I know there are others who make similar units, Waterous, CET, etc... but at this time the Odin is the only one I have experience with.
