Putnam Hose Company 3, in Bennington, operated with this unusual Ranger pumper than was built on a 1984 Mack-MS chassis. It carried 750 gallons of water and was rated to deliver 1000 gallons per minute. It was replaced in 2004 with this Smeal that is built on an International 2-door chassis. The water tank and pump have been increased to 1000 and 1250, respectively.
