Do you have a picture?

Yep,I do.Sorry about that.Thought I posted them.

These were from our stand-by day at our county fair in August of 2010.
Very simple brush truck...I love it! :)
300 gal. tank,250 gpm pto pump.1-1 3/4" crosslay and 1" booster line.Dope the tank with Class A(Indian tanks too.)2 chainsaws and enough tools to keep 20 people busy.
Also carry a 285 gpm portable pump.Throw another one in and it works great to get into inaccesible water supplies.
Weighs just shy of 11,000 lb. loaded(minus the 2 folks in the cab.)
Nice looking truck, and looks to me set up very well to perform the tasks needed .

We still have a 1966 Howe pumper that is currently our reserve pumper. It still runs great. It was re-powered in the late 1990's with a diesel motor to replace the old gasoline motor, and the manual transmission was replaced with an automatic. 

Awesome!Howe built a TON of great rigs.If somebody built them like that today they would take over the market.

This is my 1956 Howe/International pumper
