Happy New Year!!

The pump of the month for January 2019 is the Bennett 300 and 500 series pumps. 300 series pumps have a pipe frame, and 500 series have an angled iron frame. These pumps are fairly common in the 371 and 541's. They have a fantastic style to them. Some models are hard to find and rare too. What a great looking pump. Participate if you can with history, pictures of your pumps, or old station photos with them if you have them.
