rolling through my dreams
Recent fire engine purchases I've made on Ebay for DeTruck:
One 75 foot length of 500 PSI 1-1/2 inch rubber lined fire hose with a brass nozzle - $71.00
"You are bidding on one 75 foot length of 500 PSI 1-1/2 inch rubber lined fire hose with a brass nozzle. One end has a male connector, the other end is female so you can connect multiple hoses for additional length. This used to be a cabinet mounted stationary hose connected to a sprinkler system. We took it down a while ago due to changing insurance regulations. This hose is in excellent condition but I haven’t tested it. I believe the last hydrostatic test was in 1996. It would also be great for draining a pool or basement or watering the lawn, etc."
2 1/2 INCH FIRE HOSE. 50 FT ROLL. - $14.51
"2 1/2 INCH FIRE HOSE. 50 FT ROLL. BOTH ENDS IN TACT. GOOD FOR ANY USE. INCLUDING IRIGATION. WILL MAKE BENDS AND TURNS WITHOUT KINKING."

"Morning Pride FD boots. Stock-1430, size: 8. Steel toe and soles. In good condition with some wear and tear shown on heel.(boot in pic not actual boot but same style) "

X-10 Nightowl Low Light B&W Security Camera - $26.99
"The new Night Owl Surveillance Cam is an extremely powerful black and white micro camera , attached to an extremely long and durable 60 ft. cord. Through the cable, LIVE video is transmitted direct to your TV, VCR, or any other home electronic appliance with standard RCA inputs! It has a .5 lux rating (Illumination ability) which is over 5 times greater than most color cameras! This is truly amazing as it provides "night vision" power! But the true beauty is the size! It is super small and very discreet. You can hang the camera in planter, mount to a tree, place on top of a book. It's just like a small owl! " (this is for backing the engine up.)
