Yes they had one with a small 'A' frame lifting frame added on top of the water tanks. Arrived a runner but was allowed to rust away out in the open at Meola Rd as it was not of interest to the fire or military sections. Not 100% sure it survived.

A number of these tanker units passed over to the old forest service fire squads and eventually two of them came into the possession of the Fire Services Historical Society at Ferrymead.
However after some years the committee of that society deemed them to not be in their aegis as their collection was headed down a simply NZ Fire Service path and so they were moved on, I'm not able to recollect whereto.
They were similar but distinctly different in appearances so I think you'll find that there were at least two variants.
Three variants actually - fire engine, tanker and pumper.
