Waterloo portable engines are regularly built in 12, 14 and 16 HP sizes. Larger portable engine are only built to special order. These engines are especially adapted for running portable sawmills, ordinary sized threshing outfits or for any other farm use. The material used in the construction of them is of the same high standard as used in our traction engines, and in the mechanical construction they are given the same attention and are in every detail as well built as any of our tractions.
In design and finish they are excelled by none. For power and durability they surpass all rivalry. They are very economical on fuel and water, built for burning wood or coal. They do not require an expert to operate. They are sufficiently light so as to be easily handled by a team of horses and are particularly adapted for rough country. For winter transportation they are easily mounted on sleighs; rear axle hub castings which bolt to the runners can be supplied for the purpose if desired.
They are fitted out with the best accessory parts such as governor, lubricator, steam gauge, two injectors, a perfectly balanced disc, etc. They are carefully worked out in every detail, with the idea of making a simple, plain and serviceable engine that with proper care should give years of service without expense.
