  • hahn fire apparatus

    Hi, can anyone tell me how many custom pumpers Hahn built?

    thanks, Mark.

                The Last Hahn

                There were approximaetly 2500 Hahns produced (custom and commercial). Over the years we purchased 8 units (1 commercial, 7 custom). The attached photos are of our last order - 2 engines and one telesquirt. The last completed Hahn - the telesquirt - was delivered the day the bank took over. It left as the bank locked the doors.

                All have 8V92T Detroits, Allison Trans, Fixed 6 man cabs, Hale 2000 GPM two stage pumps, deck guns, 5" manifold fed by two 3" valves, 6 Kw diesel generators, 1500' 5", 400' 3 1/2', Front bumper lines and crosslays, and much more.

                The engines were 2000 GPM/750 water with Fecon proportioners/120 Foam. Slide 3 is still in service as a reserve/LDH engine. Slide 2 is now in Alberta, Canada serving a mining company.

                The Telesquirt has 2000 GPM/ 500 water 50' telesquirt and is still in service.

                The engines cost approx 200K the squirt was 280K

                These engines are featured in the Hahn book by Thomas Shand and some of our older units also appear on the sites noted above.

                    Tough rides. Held up to most anything you could throw at them.

                      You lucked out. We had one on order, the cab was built and sitting on the floor when it got locked up.

                      Luckily since Hahn and my fire company are both in Berks County they didn't ask for a deposit as a courtesy to in county companies.

                          Rumor has it that the reason they went out of business was that the owner got caught with his, um, "hand" in the cookie jar. Any verification?

                            Dragnfyre - Since Hahn was COD with Snorkel we took title to the Telesquirt at the time we made the payment to Snorkel + a little extra. We knew their financial situation and took a chance that the partial truck would be more valuable than no truck. Essentially paid for the cab/chassis/pump and telesquirt at 1988 contract prices in late of 1989 with delivery in 1990. The truck was in reality 99.8% complete. Some of the work done in the last few days before delivery was rushed. It took a while to resolve the outstanding items. We took a chance and got lucky! Not sure if I would make that decision again. They made a good truck, were noce people to deal with and could build anything you wanted. True custom apparatus.

                            As far as the reason for the collapse, there were multiple causes.

                            Hahns are nearly indestructable, but as CE11 mentioned not the choice for a long drive. You can feel every bump in the road for a few days after the journey.
