A very well made Traction Engine/Steam Roller Trailer to suit a large 6" or smaller full size engine.

​The large load space is enclosed by a front seating box, and convenient hinged-drop panels on the rear and sides. The seat box doubles up as a secure storage area and houses the battery for the rear flashing beacon. The tarp is getting a bit tired but a few minor repairs will see it last a few more years.

​The underslung stainless steel water tank carries approx 250 liters and is filled via 2" fill points at either side, the tank is also equipped with a level gauge, drain tap and feed pipe to the engine.

​The brakes on the front wheels are operated via a handle that can be reached while sat on the engine.

​Dimensions (Approx):
Length: 10' (drawbar 2' extra)
Width: 4' 6"
Height: 4' 10"
Seat height 3' 10"
Seatbox overall: 4' x 18" wide x 14" deep.

​Overall a very well thought out trailer that has proven itself a useful asset when using an engine on the road. It has carried us to and from the pub on more than one occasion!

Available separately is a 4 wheel flatbed car trailer which was used to move the roading trailer when not behind a steam engine. This is just over a year old and as you would expect is in great condition. The load area is 8' x 6'.

 

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.
