Ahrens-Fox Fire Apparatus - Photo Archive

von

Of all the companies that built motor fire apparatus in America in the 20th century, none has acquired the cult-like following accorded the unique products of the Ahrens-Fox Fire Engine Company of Cincinnati, Ohio.
With its front-mounted piston pump surmounted by a gleaming spherical air chamber, the Ahrens-Fox piston pumper projects irresistible aesthetic and mechanical appeal. Fire apparatus aficionados and collectors have all but elevated the truly distinctive Ahrens-Fox piston pumper to a firefighting deity.

Noted fire apparatus historian and author Walt McCall has selected the best of the best for this photographic tribute to a legendary nameplate - including the milestone Continental, mighty six-piston Models PS, BT and what is arguably the most beautiful fire engine ever made in America, the classic, semi-streamlined Model HT.
A supplemental gallery of 32 color photos showcases some of the finest surviving Ahrens-Foxes.

John Bean and FMC Fire Apparatus

von

The diverse Food Machinery and Chemical Corporation, later named FMC Corporation, made chemical and agricultural equipment dating back to the late 1800s. The Bean Spray Pump Company was an FMC division, changed to the John Bean Mfg. Co. in 1915 and sometime in the late 1930s an orchard owner successfully used his dependable John Bean sprayer to extinguish a neighbor's house fire.

This accidental success story led to the development of the high pressure fog system which helped put out fires during WWII, and soon led to the first High Pressure Fog Fire Fighter body that could be put on any truck chassis. This success propelled John Bean to become one of the revered names in the fire apparatus industry through the post-war years until their slow weaning of the Bean name and eventual demise in the early 1990s.

Although primarily used by rural fire departments as an economical fire engine, many large cities even acquired FMC/Bean apparatus. Portrayed with historic black and white and contemporary colour images, this book covers the whole lineup from slide-in pumper and tank combos, to custom-built brush trucks, tankers, commercial and custom chassis pumpers, and even aerials, snorkels and ladder towers.

Emergency One Fire Apparatus 1974-2007

von

From an inconspicuous beginning in Ocala, Florida, in 1974, Emergency One rocketed to the front rank of the U.S. fire apparatus industry in less than a decade. E-One's astonishing rise stunned its long-established competitors and changed the way fire apparatus was constructed in the United States.
E-One's success was achieved by using pre-built interchangeable modules installed on any commercial truck chassis, and a complete fire truck could be ready in 30-60 days instead of the six months to a year needed by its competitors.

E-One's quick upstart allowed them to introduce their own custom cab-forward chassis in 1984, the Hurricane, which was also highly successful. Today, E-One remains the industry's second-largest player, behind rival Pierce. This book is packed full of colourful photos, and each chapter on various models covers the earliest rigs to today's beauties.

Pierce Fire Apparatus 1939-2006

von

Founded by Dudley and Humphrey Pierce in 1913, the Auto Body Works, of Appleton, Wisconsin, became noted for producing custom utility bodies on commercial truck chassis. In 1939, the Auto Body Works began building fire apparatus bodies to supplement its business. The company would eventually assume the name of Pierce Manufacturing.
Propelled by an association with the famous Snorkel device and the introduction of products that would become fire service trends, Pierce became the new giant in the fire apparatus industry. Today, Pierce Manufacturing is a division of the Oshkosh Truck Corporation.

This book vividly illustrates the history of Pierce fire apparatus from its first fire apparatus bodies to its ultra modern machines of today. The progression of Pierce fire apparatus is displayed through the use of black and white photographs from both well known fire apparatus photographers and company archives.
Included are apparatus deliveries from every state in the United States, as well as exports to other countries, and examples of nearly every model and variation produced by Pierce. A vibrant colour gallery shows fire apparatus in a wide array of colour schemes specified by Pierce customers and displays the finest photographs available.
