The RAM XD is easily deployed and operated by a single firefighter. Its patented hydraulic stability system harnesses reaction force to stabilize the water cannon/monitor. Four fold-out forged aluminum legs with carbide-tipped ground spikes extend to the largest footprint in its class for exceptional stability. The rear ground spikes are angled to help the carbide tips grip the ground surface. The RAM XD can be carried while attached to a charged line. Exclusive patented design lowers friction loss and produces consistent stream quality in all ranges of motion. The RAM XD can be stored pre-connected and features an ergonomic U-shaped valve handle. Attached safety strap includes storage pouch.
