The “Victor” Motor Chemical Engine
The motor chemical fire engine, an illustration of which is on this page, is designed for use in small cities and towns and also for the outlying districts of large cities. It is known as the “Victor” and is the product of the W. S. Nott Company, of Minneapolis, Minn., who have been in the fire apparatus business for the past thirty-six years. The car is equipped with two 30-gallon chemical tanks, a 20-foot extension ladder and a full complement of minor equipment, in fact everything that is necessary to extinguish an ordinary fire. The durability and efficiency of the machine was demonstrated recently when one was driven from the factory to the Iowa State Firemen’s Convention at Iowa City, Ia., and return, when the roads were in almost impassable condition, due to heavy rains. The same car was driven to the Minnesota State Firemen’s Convention at Pine City, the North Dakota Firemen’s Convention at Wahpcton and the Wisconsin State Firemen’s Tournament at Rice Lake, a total distance of close to three thousand miles. All of these trips were made without the slightest mishap. The North Dakota and Minnesota Associations gave the Nott Company a vote of thanks for exhibitions made with the machine at their conventions.
