Aerial buckets are one of the leading resources for use in fighting wildfires world wide, and the Bambi Bucket by SEI Industries has become synonymous with aerial firefighting. They are portable, easy to maintain, and a cost-effective way to drop water where you need it. By adding a pilot-operated valve system, the Bambi Max Bucket allows for splitting the water load into multiple drops.
The Mechanical Specialties Bucket Protector protects your investment by shielding the valve from incidental impacts during take-off/landing as well minimizing foreign objects from getting caught in the valve during fills.
Bucket Protectors are currently available for the 780 and 320 USG capacity buckets, with additional sizes in development.
