On behalf of the owners we are pleased to offer for sale this professionally built and very well presented 6” Little Samson steam tractor. Based on a small prototype, it offers owners the enjoyment of a large-scale engine but at a size and weight which allows transport by a standard van or large family car and trailer. 2 adults can comfortably sit on the engine.

On the road and rallyfield these engines are impressive performers; the top gear is quite high and allows for a comfortable 6-7mph on the road without pushing the engine too hard.

The boiler is professionally built and CE marked by AJB boilers, as per the normal arrangement it is water fed through a crankshaft driven pump and steam injector. With a large boiler capacity the Little Samsons are free steaming engines and easy to get along with.

Included in the sale is a full set of firing irons, engine specific tools, oils etc. A twin axle IFOR Williams trailer for transport is also available subject to separate negotiation.

For further details or to arrange a viewing please do not hesitate to contact us.
