First Septic Truck in Minocqua!

LaFrenier’s First Pumper Truck is Hanging Tough!

Mark Hartsheim sent a link he found on Craig’s List. The homemade  pumper truck was in service starting in the 1950’s. The pump was a diaphragm pump, not very efficient, but it served its purpose for many years by replacing the buckets  used before that. After years of septic service, the septic truck, modified once again, serviced Minocqua’s  sewer mains for Lakeland Sanitary District #1 by flushing water into the mains to keep the sewage flowing.
