About this creation

Seagrave Fire Apparatus is the oldest' continuous manufacturer of fire apparatus in North America. Seagrave was founded in Detroit 1881 by Frederic Scott Seagrave.

Seagrave built its first motor fire apparatus in 1907 and its first motor pumping engine in 1912. These first Seagrave pumpers had pumps built by Gorham that were mounted in the ear of the apparatus. Starting in 1915 Seagrave stopped using Gorham pumps and
started using Rees Roturbo centrifugal pumps. These were mounted in the middle of the apparatus.

A triple combination pumper is a pumping engine that carried its own hose and chemical booster tanks. It does not need to be accompanied by a hose wagon like a steamer. The larger size of motor fire apparatus allowed combination apparatus to be built. The first triple combination pumper was built in 1909 by The Tea Tray Company, also known as Accurate Fire Apparatus, on an American-Moor truck chassis. It served in Middletown, New York.

It is quite weird to tell about civilian stuff that they look bad-ass, but this car is really dangerous looking. It would fit to some Chicago gangster from 1930s. And the last photo is really great looking :D

Quoting Maxime MaxSamAlex Great job! We can see a lot of work has been done on this, liked the bit of history, and that's a very well-made model! Did you design it with a picture, or by memory?
I reviewed a lot of photographs. I have never seen one of these other than in a photo.

As usual, brilliant. I really like the "vents" on the side of the hood, nice touch. You really nailed the look of this rig. Great work!
