Title: Hahn Fire Apparatus
Post by: Frank B on April 29, 2003, 09:54:03 PM
I am compiling a collection of Hahn fire truck photos. I have about 40% of all Hahns made and would like to recieve more. If you have any Hahn photos or know of any Photographers that do please e-mail me at Frank808323@msn.com I also have a data list if you need to locate information on a Hahn truck. I would like to  obtain photos of older Hahn rigs. Thanks!

Frank, I have several photos of Hahn rigs, but most are in my computer.  Would posting Hahn pictures on this thread be OK for you?  I would be interested to see from your delivery list any rigs that Hahn made for the US Army during WWII.  I know that Hahn manufactured many of the rig bodies that were assembled and placed on Ford and Chev. chassis but have not had any luck finding info.  I have only 3 pictures of WWII Hahn Army rigs.  Attached is a photo of a 1982 Hahn-Fire Tec, 1000/500/60 from the US Army at Arlington Hall Station in Arlington VA.

The Hahn pumper up top from Arlington Va went to Ft. Belvoir Va and ran as Engine 65. I will try to post a pic of it painted red. I am a firefighter at Ft. Belvoir and found a lot of old photos and i am in the process of scanning them.

We retired this Hahn several years ago and it was a hard running truck.  The strange thing about it was it had an 8 cylinder Cummins marine diesel for a power plant.  I've never seen a marine diesel in a truck.  It was a trick to drive also because of the short windshield, it was like looking out a tank turret.  But it was a tuff truck and we ran the wheels off of it and logged over 100,000 miles before we auctioned it off.  We'll never get that kind of use out of our new Quantum's but they don't make real fire trucks anymore.

We had a 1980 Hahn/Fire Tec 85' truck at Fort Bragg. That thing stayed broken. Brakes, hydraulics, and of course the ladder. My home town had two. A 1980 100' truck, and they still have a 1982 1250 engine. The engine company said if Hahn was still in business they would have purchased another Hahn in '97 when they got a new engine. The truck company generally liked their truck but it was too small for all the equipment they carried but that's how they had it made that wasn't Hahn's fault and again there was the ladder issue which all Hahn trucks had.

Yeah, thats it. I drove that back from getting fuel one day and parked it. A couple of hours later I went to get my gear from the truck and just happened to notice the valve stem cap on the left front wheel. It was melted. I put my hand on the wheel and couldn't touch it the wheel was that hot. All the wheels were that way. I reported it to the AC and we took it out of service. The next day they took it to the shops and they pulled the wheels and when they did the drums on the rear were broken and pieces fell off. The wheels were what was holding them together. No kidding. Buy the way it also had a 20 gallon foam tank and a Feecon APH 1.5 round-the-pump foam system which was a big help on the 1994 fighter crash on the Green Ramp at Pope AFB. For ground ladders it had only a 24, 14, and 10. We took a 16' a frame from a crash truck and lashed it on up over the foam tank.  It also had a 8V92T and a Jake brake. It was a easy driving truck considering its size.

The Center Point Fire District where I worked had two Hanns that were mid 70s model trucks.  They gave good service for many years.  I made a long medical run in our second in territory in a driving rain storm one night.  It was hilly and it took for EVER to get there.  Thank goodness the patient was still alive when we got on scene!  I love a straight shift though!
