We are pleased to offer for sale, on behalf of the owner, this well-presented half-size Tasker tractor to the popular ‘Little Giant’ design.

Key Features:

  • The boiler is a commercially made, welded steel boiler by John Rex Model Engineers. It was built to a high standard and has been maintained well. Please speak to us about boiler testing options going forward.
  • Two-speed, single cylinder arrangement with slide valve actuated by a Stephenson’s link.
  • Mechanical water pump and steam injector fitted for filling the boiler when in steam, as standard.
  • Foster mechanical lubricator and Tasker type pressure release valves. There is space for a whistle, should the buyer wish to add one at a later date.
  • Well-built to a consistently high standard throughout.
  • Steam tractor fittings including motion covers, solid flywheel, belly tanks and rubber tyres.  
  • The paint is smart in a black livery throughout.
  • The wheels are fitted with tyres for a smooth and comfortable ride on the road as well as the rally field . It has also been fitted with a double seat meaning driving can be enjoyed with a friend!
  • This one is registered for road use with a current V5C.
  • Includes a half-day tuition session, if requested by the buyer. 

Overall, a superb, smaller half-size miniature which has been maintained to a high standard throughout its life.
