Junior aerial truck. ex – Staunton, VA.

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.
