Thanks, Louis, nice little Front-Mount Pumper, on the Dodge Truck chassis.

Great job of body-work(coach-work); and a neat pump installation. Good size for getting around the narrow streets of the Old Town.

Good to see her preserved for us to see.

Regards, from Canada,

It have two pumps. One low pressure pump in the front and a second one high pressure in the back of this fire engine. All the Dutch watertenders and pumpers have low pressure as high pressure on board, nowadays it is a combine pump. In the 1950s and 1960s that had two pumps on board in this style.
