Default Stover #40 Mill

I finally got all the frozen parts freed and everything working on the Stover #40 Feed Mill and I just finished painting it. Although there was plenty of original paint on it to copy I think it didn't come out well, as the colors look like John Deere not Stover. My problem now is that after researching it, it takes at least 6 H.P. to run it and I'm wondering if I can demo it with a 2 H.P. using small amounts of grain in it? All I have are four 2 H.P. FM Dishpan engines, one each of the four variations they made.

Nice grinder. You can demonstrate it with a 2hp. engine, but you won't be able to feed it very fast at all.

I think the green and red should both have been a little darker, but at least it has paint on it! You can demonstrate with 2hp, but you will only be able to sprinkle the grain in or else you will kill the engine/throw the belt off. Above all, go out and have fun with it! You'll eventually discover a sweet spot with it or else have an excuse to buy a bigger engine!
