That is great to hear David, nice to have things stay in the family like that and to still have operational. They do seem to start easily backwards if they don't start on the first bump still I find it physically easier to start than any crank handle or rope start engine but you just got to have 10 minutes or more to warm it up and coax it into running in the right direction.Hello Nathan,
I enjoy looking at your videos, my Hornsby is 4HP and looks similar to the one above being started. It came from my Uncles farm, my Cousin who would have been eighty nine this year had never seen it running.
I had it going for a couple of hours in 2011 for it's hundredth birthday, as in your video it tends to start running backwards.
Hello NathanIt would appear at times that I am hijacking this thread and turning it into the Nathan Woodruff's Youtube Channel promotional thread
That's glorious. Do you see many Ruston's in your part of the world? I would not imagine so.This was my Ruston Mark CR17 running for the first time I've owned it at a local show last month.
Beauty. It's on like Donkey Kong by the soundsWhen i do get time i will challenge you for rights to this thread!
A Marino mower from a few years ago. It has a BSA Power Unit as an engine. I think it was called a Mowall. Not sure off the top of my head.
I should get a belt for it one day but I'm worried the dog will run after it and cut his leg off. Probably better off left as is.
PS: It did have a belt. I hope it's still with it.
Hello NathanI like how it the harvester is being driven that makes a great display. I have seen a couple of early harvesters with a pulley set up so they can be driven without towing them I wonder if that was done so they could be used as just a seed cleaner. Also the blue contraption in the back ground is that a seed cleaner or thresher? Great to see working display
