Of all the companies that built motorized fire apparatus in America in the 20th century, none has acquired the cult-like devotion accorded the unique products of the Ahrens-Fox Fire Engine Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. With its front-mounted piston pump surmounted by a gleaming spherical air chamber, the Ahrens-Fox piston pumper projects irresistible aesthetic and mechanical appeal. Apparatus buffs, aficionados, and collectors have all but elevated the truly distinctive A-F piston pumper to deity status. It's been over half a century since delivery of the last Ahrens-Fox pumper, but the Ahrens-Fox legacy lives on. Walt McCall's eye for history and detail have lovingly documented the 45-year history of this iconic engine.
