Model Type A1 'Little Giant' Tractor
Boiler Material Steel
Boiler Maker Stark Engineering Ltd
Boiler Year 1998
Built Completion 2020
Fuel Coal
Condition Ready to go
Asking Price £28,495

A recently finished example of a 6" scale Tasker, built to an earlier design than the current Dream Machines Ltd miniatures of the same name but only finished last year. 

We have been commissioned to advertise this appealing half-size example of the A1 ‘Little Giant’ design, produced originally in full size by Tasker & Sons Ltd of Andover. Based on the diminutive three ton, 4NHP, 2-speed and three shaft full size, this 6” scale miniature comes out somewhat smaller than its counterparts but is still a good size and perfect for use on the road or rally field. Supplied with extensive paperwork including drawings, historical information about the design, boiler reports (including a full, commercial report offered as standard by ourselves within the sale of any ‘ready to go’ miniature traction engine – please ask for details) and photographs of the build and engine.

The boiler was produced originally by Stark Engineering Ltd in 1998. It is of welded steel construction. Although an earlier boiler, this engine can be treated as essentially a new build - it was only finished and steamed for the first time in 2020. It has also recently had an appealing, double set of water sight glass fittings fitted.

Cosmetically, we would say that it is generally good but there is room for improvement. The paint itself is generally good with some peeling in places – it is plainly finished with no signwriting which either gives the buyer a blank canvas or replicates the plain nature of some of the early steam tractors. The motion work is good, reflective of it having seen very little use since completion last year. There is a little slack in places and some of the techniques used to retain the shafts could be considered unconventional in terms of how prototypical it is, but it is well machined and nicely done from an engineering viewpoint. As standard, it is fitted with a mechanical water pump and steam injector. It also has a winch drum and cable, rubber tyres (for easy use on the road), locomotive-style pressure release valves (for reliability and easy adjustment if requested by the inspector) and a siren whistle.

It is registered for use on the road and comes ready to go. We would be delighted to hand over this engine to include a half day of tuition on its safe operation. For further details about exactly what is included within the sale of any of our second-hand, ready to go miniature traction engines, give us a call on 01392 833301.

Overall, an appealing miniature example of a popular and historically significant steam tractor presented in good running order and ready to go.
