Stevie, does this machine stand outside all the time? also what age is the old Merc

Added by Matt Ireland on 17 August 2010.
Hi Matt, No she usually sits in the main appliance shed. They kindly put our transit inside the appliance shed for us and kept their machine outside. A great bunch of guys at Bihac and also Krupa.Not sure how old she is but am sure she is well into her late 20's possibly more.

Thanks for that Stevie, she is a very nice looking old machine, and they obviously take some care of her. Great to see an appliance of that era still in frontline use.

This is a Benz L1113A 4X4 TLF1624, first introduced in 1963 but in production for decades.

This was the standard first responding pump at almost every full-time and many volunteer fire stations in West Germany, and a large proportion of them were 4X4s like this example.

It was an 11 tonne GVW chassis, with a 130 BHP six cylinder diesel engine, 1600 LPM pump, 2400 liter tank and a six seat crew cab.

Numerous bodybuilders constructed them, and although I think this may be by Bachert there were a lot of very similar looking units.
