1909 Knox High Pressure Hose Wagon
This is a 1909 Knox high pressure hose wagon. It was built by the Knox Automobile Company of Springfield, Massachusetts.
About this creation

This high pressure hose wagon is a heavy duty style truck with a wagon type body, a flat front and the driver and officer seated high above the motor. The engine is air cooled. There are two 2 inch intakes on each side of the truck to feed the massive deck pipe. This wagon can carry around 1500 feet of 2 inch hose. This was a standard supply line at the turn of the last century.

This unit is very similar to the first piece of motorized that was placed into service in the FDNY at Engine 72 in February 1909.

This truck has a crank start. It also has a chain drive to the rear wheels.

The Knox Automobile Company was founded in 1898 and built passenger cars initially. Knox was one of the pioneers of the automobile industry. Knox built its first motorized fire engine in 1906. Knox built its first pumping engine in 1911. Knox left the fire apparatus industry in 1914 and went out of business in 1924. BFD552@Gmail.com.
