1938 Ahrens-Fox Model HT Pumper . This is a classic 1938 Ahrens-Fox Model HT pumper. It features the distinctive front mounted piston pump for which Ahrens-Fox is famous. This HT features a 1000 gpm six-cylinder piston pump and a 935 cubic inch Hercules HXE engine with no muffler that produced an impressive 210 hp. It has a four speed manual transmission. It is capable of 65 mph. . The most distinctive feature of this Ahrens-Fox is the spherical air chamber above the pump. The big silver ball is to dampen the pulsations cased by the piston pump. Although rated at 1000 gpm, the Model HT often could pump more than this. The Model HT was the pinnacle of the Ahrens-Fox pumper design. For its day it was a huge pumper. It is 28 feet in length with a wheel base of 212 inches. It weighs approximately 20,000 pounds. In 1938 as new it cost $12,000. The first Model HT was built in 1937 and delivered to South Saint Paul, Minnesota. The last was delivered in 1952 to Tarrytown, New York. A total of only 67 Model HT pumpers were built. Of these 26 went to FDNY. Only one of these survives and is in the collection of the New York State Museum. New Orleans purchased four Model HT pumpers in 1948. These remained in front line service until the 1970ís and were among the last HT pumpers in service. Ahrens-Fox of Cincinnati, Ohio, was active in the fire apparatus industry from 1910 to 1956. The Ahrens-Fox name was resurrected in 2002 and is now used under a lease agreement by HME Incorporated of Wyoming, Michigan, a suburban of Grand Rapids. Ahrens-Fox apparatus is highly prized by collectors and a significant number of "Foxes" are in the hands of collectors and museums. BFD552@Gmail.com.
