We are pleased to offer for sale this lovingly cared for Aveling and Porter 10 ton Roller. “Pride of the Road” In a line-up of Aveling rollers this one with its recently refreshed paintwork stands out from the crowd. The engine has just had a new set of tubes fitted and new steam test so is ready to roll and be enjoyed.

Slide valve Aveling rollers are a popular engine for both newcomers to full size steam and those with experience. Their free-steaming and powerful nature mean they are an easy engine to drive and a days roading or on the rallyfield is no hardship.

The engine is presented in very original condition retaining a ¾ length canopy and working scarifier. Included in the sale is a set of firing irons and newly made and fitted tarpaulin sheets.
Mechanically she is in fine fettle but like many is a bit noisy in the gears.
There are 8 years left on the hydraulic test and a new annual steam test will be conducted for the new owner.

As many people will know this genuine, honest roller that comes from a well-respected home. The somewhat unexpected sale is for genuine reasons and it is important the engine goes to a good home.

Viewing by genuinely interested parties is welcomed and we ask all initial enquiries are through us.

 

Important Note: We recommend when purchasing any steam vehicle to employ the services of your own boiler inspector for independent advice and not solely rely on previous test reports.
