1901 Waterous Steam Pumper

Our 1901 Waterous steam pumper is rated at 600 gpm.  It is pulled by 2 horses and is fully operational.  Normal boiler pressure is about 90 psi now, although originally it ran at over 160 psi at full speed.  It is fueled by wood or coal.  Coal is required to get enough heat for full output.  The pump has been rebuilt.
