4 inch scale Burrell 6nhp agricultural engine - stock code 8508

We sold this one earlier in the year - having run it through the summer the new owner has decided that a 3 inch scale engine would be a more manageable size for him. Photographs opposite and words below are from the previous listing.

A well built 4 inch scale Burrell agricultural engine; meticulously maintained by the previous owner (there's even a tool for removing fusible and tubeplate plugs for the annual boiler inspection) it's in good condition and runs very well - there's a short clip of it running in the yard earlier this week here.

Nicely turned out in maroon with vermilion wheels, paintwork is in good order, the brightwork comes up well. Two speed with differential, road wheels have bonded rubber tyres making it a comfortable engine to drive on the road.

The boiler has had ultrasonic survey, hydraulic and steam tests in recent days, with certificate issued for same.
