A superb 5NHP Single Crank Compound Burrell which wants for nothing.

We are delighted to have been commissioned to advertise Burrell No. 3918 ‘Victoria’ for sale. Manufactured originally in 1923, it is a late example which we are told, remarkably, has never been derelict. It therefore retains a huge amount of originality which, combined with diligent maintenance and care in more recent years, has resulted in a historically accurate, but mechanically excellent, 5NHP traction engine. The care it has received throughout its life shows in the smaller details such as still being fitted with largely the correct fittings and oil caps throughout.

We have pedigree documented from when it entered preservation in the 1960s. The owner at the time was a keen film maker (as well as being a traction engine owner) so took great delight in combining the two hobbies and producing large amounts of video footage of this engine! There is some wonderful footage of the engine attending Pudsey Rally in 1967 available on YouTube. Understandably, the engine has been painted since then, but it shows the engine being enjoyed in early preservation which is nice to see.

In more recent years, it has been subject to restorative work to ensure it continues to be enjoyed for generations to come. In 2013, a firebox was fitted commercially, and this is described to be in excellent order. The remainder of the boiler is also in good order with the most recent hydraulic certificate having been carried out in 2014 (presumably following the boiler works at that time). Mechanically it wants for nothing and is in good order throughout. It is a standard single crank compound arrangement with two drive speeds. It is a relatively small engine at 5NHP which makes it manageable and a pleasure to drive. The paint is excellent and it has been recently fitted with new rubber tyres for comfortable use on tarmac and hard ground.

A fantastic opportunity to own a well-sorted Burrell. Viewings are available and we encourage any prospective to view in person where possible. Potential buyers are also more than welcome to employ the services of their own boiler inspector if they wish.

Asking Price - £175,000
