Picture coming Soon

This pumper once was in service the the Village of Juniata as it’s front line attack. It was refurbished in 1997. A flatbed was added to a Model “T” frame, and a hand pump was placed so it could be removed and set up by a horse tank or other water source to provide water. The pump is now fastened to the flat bed so it can be pulled in parades. It still pumps water. It had a hook that went over the bumpers of 1950’s model cars to it could be pulled to the fire. Once story passed down about this pumper is that once a zealous fire-fighter hooked it to the bumper of his car and took off so fast that he pulled the hook out of the tongue two fire-fighters rode in the trunk holding on to the “t” handle to get it to the fire.
