Back to additional machines



The engine was described as a "crude oil traction engine", which meant that it could be powered by "all types of crude oil available on the market", although paraffin too could be used as a fuel. The engine was produced in six different sizes ranging from 5 hp to 20 hp. A characteristic of this type of engine was its good fuel economy.


Application area


These engines were specially developed and adapted as a power source for stationary threshing machines, wood splitters, cutters, etc. The model on display in the museum is mobile, but the Ideal engines could also be supplied as stationary, without a chassis.
