Was outside today, getting ready for winter. Time to drain the fire fighting equipment before it freezes. This was a nice straight forward job to build and works well. The year after I built it we saved a neighbours house (and probably ours too) from a fire coming up the hill. We don't have any fire department here, we are on our own. It has a 120 gallon tank and pumps about 12 gallons per minute. It hangs on the back of my Land Rover which has a heavy duty plow blade on the front and 12 ply 16.5" tires. It won't stop a crown fire but is really handy for a ground fire.

Four bolts to undo and it comes off the trailer and can be put in the back of a pickup.

Is this what you had in mind?

My wife's idea.

George,

It is the most beautiful place I have ever lived. When we saw this place we both agreed if the house was at all livable we would buy. When the weather is nice in the Caribou Country it just can't be beat.
