If the one with the half round hoop legs is a #10, then what is this one that you have pictured with the 2 wheels and 2 peg legs??? http://professionalcarsociety.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12338&stc=1&d=1336104081

the one with wheels is a #11. now all of these were designed along with there folding litters to hang. they all take up about the same room to store also. the wheeled one would sit in the cups on the squad bench or hang. or as in the case of Brendon's 63 on the floor. we have discussed the legged one before and Know one knew what it was called till James put the numbers to it. the 12 has no legs or wheels it is only a hanger. then there is the 107 which is a vary universality piece of equipment that can be a litter, stare chair, hanger or bench sitter. I discovered I have a picture that is labled #9 also.

Ed is correct that the FW #9 is one that:

1) folds in half
2) Has wheels at the front and posts at the foot
3) has an elevating head section

These are the standard portable stretcher here in BC. We have over a thousand of them in service. A great, dependable portable stretcher. We usuually bundle them with a pillow, a disposable blanket and a wool blanket.
