The Classic Working Steam Engine Locomobile

This is the working 1:8-scale version of the classic steam-powered locomobile used by European farmers at the turn of the 20th century for threshing and plowing. Imported from Germany, the locomobile has a 2" diam. brass boiler that produces hefty steam to drive the double-action, dual-flywheel cylinder in forward or reverse. The chain drive translates the rotation of the flywheels into power for the groundwheels, and the engine has a partitioned smoke chamber at the front to collect the condensation and allow the smoke to escape through the hinged smokestack. The intricately detailed model has a sight glass that acts as a water gauge to indicate remaining water level, and the locomobile also has a precise pressure gauge, spring-loaded safety valve to prevent over-pressurization, chain-pull whistle, steam regulator, steam jet oiler, water drain tap to simplify cleaning, and decorative gangways and ladder. Dry spirit tablets are required to heat the boiler which holds enough water to operate the steam locomobile for approximately 15 minutes. 8 1/3" H x 6" W x 10 1/4" L. (5 lbs.)
