An Honorable, Priceless, First Call for the New Truck


 Share

Recommended Posts

Topic Originally Created September 2012:

 

We were contacted by the Chief of the Slidell, Louisiana Fire Department and asked if we could transport a "unique piece of equipment" from the New Orleans Fire Department Museum to the Metal of Honor, Wounded Warriror benefit in Slidell. The "unique piece of equipment" is an 1896 Ahren's Horse Drawn Steam Pumper. When we told the Chief of our new (to us) flatbed, complete with air-ride suspension and a flame paint job, the Chief could barely control himself.

The day was absolutely perfect from the incredible weather, uneventful loading in New Orleans, the 35 mile transport to the event on I-10 complete with Fire Dept. escort and numerous on lookers taking pictures on the way, the event its self spent with Mrs. ASAP - Fran and 12 year old son Matthew, and a flawless 35 mile trip, again complete with escort, back to the museum. All in all a great day to benefit our hero's and some incredible PR for the company.

Ours... an 07' IH4300 Ext Cab, DT466, Allison, a/b,  a/r, p/w, p/l, complete with the flames.

Theirs, an 1896 Ahren's, horse drawn, steam pumper, in near perfect condition before the event,

and still in near perfect condition after the event. We're looking forward to next year.

Sure looks like the straps would rub the spoke paint off.
Love the storage on this carrier!

Ditto, nice truck, lots of tool boxes!

That pumper is definitely a nice piece, very stout and heavy too. Glad to see the museum did such a nice job on it.

That's a neat piece of history, sounds like a damn nice trip.
Also I love the tripple boxes on each side, but what all do you put in them? I have 1 box per side on my truck and i think i could only use maybe one more box
