Pictured above is my ‘All Purpose Steam Truck’. I am
getting up steam to go for one last ride before putting it away for
the winter. Using a 5 HP boiler and a 4 HP engine, I can get up to
10 M.P.H. I often use it for cutting firewood, grain grinding, and
a little steam cleaning. It is very popular at the Shows and seems
that every young person at the shows wants to ride – of course –
the parents ride along too. I am in the process of building a new
improved one and hope to model it after an English steam truck.
With the gas shortage, steam may come back in style again. Courtesy
