This live steam-powered traction engine, painted in red and blue tones, is based on those found on the roads at the height of the steam era. This is based on a general purpose traction engine which would’ve been involved with forestry, haulage and agriculture during the late 19th/early 20th century.

This can be either moved or used stationary. It can move forward and backward, with a flywheel that can be started in both rotational directions. The boiler has a diameter of 45 mm and a length of 185 mm, capable of holding 230 cm³. The brass boiler has been polished and nickel-plated to a high gloss. The accompanying water level gauge is designed as a show glass and invites you to take a closer look at the process in the steam engine. The tractor has chain steering and a transmission clutch. The detachable geared transmission allows the mobile steam engine to be used as a stationary one as well. The run time is approximately 15 minutes with a full load of our dry fuel, Witabs.

The steam engine is delivered fully assembled, making it ready to use immediately.
