Design 6.75in 'Rider-Patent' Hot Air Engine
Power 0.5hp
Origin London, UK
Year Unknown (1890s-1920s)
Condition Full Running Order
Asking Price £12,500

A running example of a superbly ingenious piece of late 19th century design; the 'Rider-Patent' hot air engine was designed originally by the Rider Engine Co. (later Rider-Ericsson Engine Co.) in America. Hayward-Tyler & Co. were based in London and produced their equivalent of the 'Rider-Patent' hot air engine, with a few slight modifications, for this side of the Atlantic. 

Presented today in running condition, this is a 6.75 inch (diameter of the piston) Hot Air Engine, produced in London by Hayward-Tyler, and which was used originally for pumping water to an estate in Essex. It is an oily rag example which has seen some running repairs over the years but is now complete and ready to show. Although it is showing its age in places, it is all part of the charm of owning a genuine pumping engine from around the end of the 19th/start of the 20th century - we have had this one running for an afternoon in our yard and it is a pleasure to use! The engine runs well, and prospective buyers are welcome to arrange a viewing of it in operation. 

Overall, a wonderful piece of industrial history and a marvellous show piece for the rally field or a talking point in the workshop!

Asking Price - £12,500
