This engine is an accurate model based on the Burrell
Agricultural Engine "Prince" a 7hp single cylinder tractor, works no
3728. Delivered new on the 23rd of August 1916 to J. Hardy of Blackmore,
Essex, the engine survives in good working condition and is to be seen
regularly at steam rallies up and down the country during the summer months.
With its open motion, spoked flywheel and lack of cover for the driver this
is the traction engine in its most basic form.
"Prince" remains largely original.. Because of
the relatively high initial cost of agricultural engines, many smaller
farmers could not afford to buy their own, useful though they were. It was
not uncommon therefore, for farmers to engage the services of a local
contracting gang who would, in the summer months, set about the annual tasks
of threshing, bailing and sawing, and come autumn ploughing the fields,
ready for the next seasons crop!
