It's October 15th and I just got back from the big demonstration.
NATURALLY, as there was a WHOLE BUNCH of people around. the buzz coil needed an adjustment.... ....and THEN it was off to the races.

The video is in WMV format, runs 1:08 and is slightly over 3 megs in size.
Please right click, select SAVE TARGET AS and SAVE it to your computer....

Nice video. Were they "drafting" out of the tank.

I see some cars were getting "washed" as well.

I have watched Harvey demonstrate Chancellor,SDs pumper several times, I last saw it run about a year ago. I think Harvey told me that it was used in 1975 to fill tankers from a farm pond to fight a rural fire. What a crude/basic/wonderfull piece of machinery.

Was this originally bought by Malvern Fire Company? I don't ever remember hearing about this or seeing it at any parade's.

Thumbs up Re: 1908 Waterous gas engine pumper VIDEO

Thanks for the videos Craig. The Stephenson County Antique Engine Club (Freeport Show) is featuring antique fire engines and equipment at the 2007 show the third weekend in July. Would it be possible to have you display this fine engine at our show?

Thanks again,

Joe Maurer

Goodday all I wonder if you are aware that the main plant for the Waterous engine company was in Brantford,Ontario Canada & St. Paul was a branch office? There is one pumper somewhere in Ontario as I seen it at a sale in my town of Campbellford several years ago & don't who bought it or where it went ( I think I could find out if anyone is interested) "All the best" Larry Healey Campbellford,Ont.
