In 1911, the company introduced its first six-cylinder engine. Two more cylinders were added to the basic Type 5 / 10 motor. Although bore and stroke remained unchanged at 5-1/2 by 6 inches, horsepower was increased to 100 - powerful enough to drive an 800 gallon-per-minute gear pump. The first Type 12 (1911-1925) pumper was delivered to West Orange, New Jersey, later that year. The Type 12s pumping capacity was later increased to 900, then 1000 gpm.
