1980S-ERA SWISS MILITARY PUMP
If there are two things the Swiss military knows, it’s knives and pumps. Here’s a manual water pump—used and surplus, which means it’s authentic, and collectible. Has a 20” long x 1-7/32” silver metal body, 12-1/2” long red wooden t-handle and a rubberish output hose approx 8 feet long x 5/8” dia. that has a threaded fitting and an 18-1/2” x 15/32” metal nozzle with, yep, a red wood handle. An arm with square hole and bolt for locking at desired height on the base’s heavy-duty support beam, depending on water levels, is just below the handle. Base is heavy cast metal approx. 12-5/8” x 11” and is chevron shaped. Probably dates from the early ’80s, back when the Swiss were neutral.
