Photo Lindsay Air Compressor, Briggs W :0

After 21 hours on the road, 1,048 miles and a blizzard that lasted 2 hours @ 15 mph, My Brother Larry and I returned from New York this morning.

Not just another Lindsay for the collection but one with a Briggs W engine, # 1134 . I've had my hopes for this one for 6 years and I finally got the email ( Thanks Bob! )
Another model represented in the Briggs/ Lindsay product line.

Very nice Randy! I was wondering if you went this weekend, with all the snow and below zero temps.

Thanks Everyone ! In case you think you remember this Lindsay, Look in the Sept.04 issue of GEM on page 17
Mr. Bob Naske is the one who brought it out to it's new life at shows and also gave me first shot at it years ago.
This makes 12 Lindsay units in our collection, between my son Thomas and I with 10 being Briggs powered, one electric and it's gas counterpart powered by a Merkel Motorwheel engine.
I'll get it on youtube once it warms up a little.

Wow ! Randy,

That's quite the find you have there ! I didn't know there was a Model W powered Lindsay. It appears to have the same basic cart, but a different tank and different wheels! I hope to see it at Coolspring sometime !
