1927 American LaFrance Deluge Wagon
This a 1927 American LaFrance Type 31-4 Deluge Wagon. It is a large hose wagon that features a 32-foot telescoping water tower.
About this creation

This unique apparatus was built using and American-LaFrance Type 31 two-wheel front drive tractor with a four-cylinder engine.

The Type 31 tractor was offered with four and six-cylinder motors. These were used to motorize formerly horse-drawn steam fire engines and ladder trucks. Others were used for newly built aerial ladder trucks. Three were used to build deluge wagons like this one. One similar horse-drawn deluge wagon was motorized with a Type 31 tractor.

The 32-foot water tower is among the smaller water towers built. It has a two-section telescoping mast. The apparatus also has two side-mounted turret pipes and a large hose bed. It is feed by nine intakes. It does not have pump. It weighs 18,400 pounds when fully loaded and is 30 feet long.

The American LaFrance Fire Engine Company Ltd was founded in January 1904. The name of the company was changed a number of times, but for most of the 20th Century American LaFrance was a dominant force in fire apparatus manufacturing.

American-LaFrance struggled in the 1990 sand early 2000s. The firm was sold a number of times before going out of business in 2014. BFD552@Gmail.com
