Apparatus Information

  • With under 50,000 miles, this piece of apparatus has lots of life remaining to respond to emergencies in your department.

  • Changes in NFPA in 1991 significantly increased fire fighter's safety when operating a fire truck. Buying a used fire apparatus newer than this year will bring those safety features into your firehouse as well. The enclosed cab which was required in 1991 and forward brought fire fighters out of the elements of weather, and into the safety of the fire apparatus cab.

  • The light tower on this vehicle will provide excellent scene lighting on your response. Whether lighting a wreck scene, or making sure your fire fighters have the light needed to prepare for work, this truck can provide that.

  • William Besserdich and Bernhard Mosling believe their two pioneering four-wheel-drive inventions together have the power to positively transform the performance of vehicles on the rugged roads of early 20th century America. Their groundbreaking designs include the automatic locking differential responsible for transferring power from the front axle to the rear axle (patented 1914) and the front driving axle with improved steering and drive capacity (patented 1915). Besserdich and Mosling decide to present their four-wheel-drive designs to automakers Case, Ford, Jeffery, Kissel, Packard, Studebaker and others. Despite the promise of performance, the automakers decline the opportunity to produce vehicles using the Besserdich/Mosling components. The rejections from industry leaders inspire Besserdich and Mosling to take charge of their ideas. They use the designs as the foundation for the Wisconsin Duplex Auto Company, founded May 1, 1917. The duo quickly obtains funding to develop and produce their first four-wheel-drive truck prototype, known as Old Betsy. By 1920, the successful prototype propels the company's early growth. To meet the demand for the powerful first production series Model A truck, the Wisconsin Duplex Auto Company moves to a new, larger facility in Oshkosh, Wis. and becomes the Oshkosh Motor Truck Manufacturing Company.
