The first two pictures are of my recently-acquired (after years of waiting and searching) Daisy-Matic Fire Bucket Truck. It is in excellent condition - missing only one of the two original plastic firemen. It runs well and the original plastic and tin construction is in excellent condition. I'm really happy to have this hard-to-find piece in my collection finally.

The third picture is my BIG Fire Ladder Truck made by IDEAL. It only has one B/O feature, and that is the searchlight. Otherwise, it is a totally-manual truck. The ladder raises and lowers, and rotates, and the wheels remove with nifty lug nuts. It's a great piece that is reminiscent of the iconic Doepke pressed-steel truck, but made primarily of hard plastic.
