THE SEAGRAVE COMPANY.

THE SEAGRAVE COMPANY.

It goes without saying that the Seagrave company is in tune with the times. He developed the spring-loaded water tower, the country’s first and only fast-rising water tower. By a man simply turning a crank, the tower is raised to the perpendicular in five seconds; the springs do the job. One of these towers was recently completed for New York City; but, before shipping, it was tested by the Columbus fire department and found to be a great success. Ease and speed of lifting. the complete control of the winch at all times and the direction of a water jet by a single operator were warmly welcomed by all the leaders present. The tower is pivoted on a ball-bearing turntable, which is equipped with a gear to rotate it by the operator, without leaving the turntable. The Seagrave company also proved that the self-propelled fire apparatus is not a theoretical problem, but a practical machine for any department. The company produced and brought to market the first true chemical engine combined with an electric motor and a flex wagon – not a refurbished passenger car, but built from the ground up for fire-fighting television glass. One was tested a few months ago by driving 100 miles over hills, rough roads, through ravines, over embankments, through small streams – all without a hitch or crash. A large city in the North West placed an order with the company for three of these machines. The Quick Grape Aerial Ladder has been improved by raising the Aerial Ladder by approximately 18 inches. above the turntable – doing so with standard ladder equipment, about the healthy height of an ordinary service truck and thus eliminating all toplnavi ness and the danger of tipping over. Seagrave fire is not designated from thcorctK.nl points, but practical observation and experience gained in fire departments from the smallest to the largest towns across the country and through testing and development in its own factory, resulting in the production of the most usable devices. The Seagrave is standard worldwide, and the proof of this is clearly demonstrated by the large number of contracts completed over the past year.
