The WICK 100-4H™ Is an Ultra-Lightweight and High-Performing Fire Pump

More than just a fire hose and pump manufacturer, Mercedes Textiles offers over 35 years of experience in manufacturing firefighting-based innovations, thereby ensuring that firefighters have the best tools at their disposal when fighting fires. Their premiere, fluid-delivering systems are in world-wide demand and include municipal, forestry, industrial and cabinet and more. Featuring the best performance of all pumps in its class, the WICK 100-4H™ Fire Pump is an ultra-lightweight, high-performance tool that you shouldn’t be without while on-scene. Here’s why:


Mercedes Textiles WICK 100-4H™ Fire Pump


The Mercedes Textiles WICK 100-4H™ Fire Pump is powered by a reliable, four-stroke, 50 cc Honda GX50 engine with an integral fuel tank that is coupled to a bolt-on detachable, single-stage, foam-compatible pump by means of a centrifugal clutch. This unique clutch feature is designed to allow easy starting and water conservation, along with letting the engine idle without engaging the pump, which simplifies the manipulation of the hose while simultaneously conserving water.

The Mercedes Textiles WICK 100-4H™ Fire Pump easily meets the emission standards of the US EPA/CARB regulations, and its single-stage, detachable pump-end is specifically designed for easy maintenance. Its fuel-efficient, high-output Honda GX50 engine features a precision-camshaft design and is equipped with an air-cooled, four-stroke OHV with a net-power output of 2.1 HP (1.6 kW) at 7,000 rpm and a torque of 2.0 lb-ft (2.7 Nm) at 4,500 rpm. The engine’s dry weight is 12.1 pounds, and its fuel-tank capacity is robust: 0.81 U.S. qt (.77 liter).

You’ll be assured of smooth performance due to the engine’s ball bearing-supported crankshaft that ensures greater stability and precision-engineered components that result in lower vibration. With a large capacity, multi-chamber exhaust system, the Honda GX50 engine is exceptionally quiet, featuring reduced mechanical noise due to lightweight, ambient-sound-reducing materials.

Globe Turnout Gear: Protection, Flexibility, Improved Performance

As a firefighter, you know how vitally important it is for you to be prepared to perform at top levels on each and every call. By listening to their customers, creating breakthrough designs, and infusing top engineering techniques, Globe has consistently delivered the most advanced, best-fitting, and longest-lasting protection options available. These factors help make them the trusted, turnout-gear manufacturer they are, and their CLASSIX® coat and pants vehemently solidify their industry-respected standing. Regarded as Globe’s most affordable turnout gear, each delivers unmatched, NFPA 1971-certified quality at value prices.

Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Coat



The Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Coat’s innovative, drop-shoulder design moves the seam past the shoulder for improved reach and reduced ride-up from the coat. Its double-stitched seams consist of eight to 10 stitches per inch, which drastically elongates its service life. It is as efficient as it is durable: The Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Coat’s collar is short, giving firefighters a better interface with their helmets.

Easy access between layers is achieved due to a liner-access opening, while double-sleeve wells equipped with Nomex® wristers prevent water from penetrating and can interface with all glove styles. Stay connected with the Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Coat’s left-chest radio pocket, and enjoy ample storage with its Kevlar-fabric-reinforced, dual-action cargo pockets.


Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Pants


The roomy, low-rise Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Pants have double-stitched seams that consist of eight to 10 stitches per inch, resulting in an extended-service life. Capable of accommodating a number of different body types, its independent-stretch waistband allows for an unrestricted fit coupled with no-gap protection with liner.

Enjoy augmented mobility with the Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Pants’ thermally enhanced flex-liner knees that give maximum levels of protection to this high-compression area. Tired of digging in or pulling out metal hardware? Its padded, H-back ripcord suspenders can easily be attached to horizontal loops. 

Equipped with patented cording, the Globe TheFireStore Spec CLASSIX® Pants’ Trimtrax® Thread Protection allows it to endure much longer than conventional stitching. Additionally, it is extremely durable because of its diamond-crotch gusset, which can evenly distribute stress in both the shell and liner.
