The steam traction engine was the predecessor of the gas tractor. It was used for belt and drawbar work. The steam engine used fire to heat the water in the boiler to make steam. It then used the expansive force of steam in a cylinder to create power. Prior to gas combustion engines, steam engines were used to power machinery. Then in the mid 1800's to early 1900's, the need for a better way to transfer power brought forth a flood of ingenious devices. Thus enters the gasoline engine. Otto was probably the first practical gasoline engine. Gas engines were used to power many items such as sugar cane mills, grist mills, corn shellers, water pumps, drag saws, washing machines, butter churns, meat grinders, fruit presses, run line shafts, and then pumps and small power plants. Hundreds of companies produced gas engines with horse power ranging from 3/4 HP to the 600 HP Snow.
The steam engines at the show will be kept busy powering a sawmill, threshing machines, power-eater, Baker fans, steam engine games, and spark shows at night.
