The town of Staunton, Virginia maintained this rig in its original condition. It was a very advanced design — America’s first entirely hydraulically powered aerial with a metal ladder and hydraulic outriggers. It also had Seagrave’s powerful 250 horsepower V-12 engine.
It’s 80 gallon booster tank with a small pump gave it some quick response capability at a fire.
Like the 1937 Pirsch aerial, this rig has survived with its original paint and decoration. The only refurbishment by the Hall of Flame was the re-upholstery of its driver / officer seat.
