4" Garrett Traction Engine
We are pleased to offer for sale this stunning 4” Garrett Traction Engine, built in 2011 the engine has been very well looked after and runs beautifully.
The Garrett is a large and powerful engine, we have driven a few over the years and are always impressed at how well they go on the rally field and road. Compared to the equivalent Foster or Burrell, they are a heavier built engine and a slightly more complicated build which would explain why there are considerably fewer built than the other 2 makes.
This example is one of the finest we have seen; quality of the build is to a very high standard and there must have been countless hours originally spent on the paintwork. It is one of the best running engines we have had in with hardly any noises coming from the motion when ticking over at any speed.
The CE marked boiler was built by AJB and water fed by a a crankshaft driven pump and steam injector. The boiler comes with a history file including previous boiler reports done by a professional independent inspector.
The engine comes with the attractive riding trolley which has been well set up for use on road runs with the additional water tank and lighting. It also comes with a full set of firing irons, coal, bottle of oil and an enjoyable day’s tuition if required. We like to sell engines ready to rally so you could pick them up from us and go straight to an event if you wished.
We are happy to consider all steam and vintage vehicles in part exchange. Delivery and export can also be arranged.
