This TL has both a rear-mounted 70 MM hose cart on the rear and two 45 MM hose reels mounted on the front of the ladder base. But no evidence of s pump. It seems the idea was to maxmize the usefulness of the appliance by bring extra hose to any call it attended (plus a full crew of 5 or 6 firefighters). Those were the days!
