What ran the washing machine between good old-fashioned elbow grease and electricity? The answer: a stationary gas engine. These small motors came in a variety of sizes and horsepower. They ran all kinds of useful appliances such as: water wells, oil wells, stationary hay balers, and yes, even washing machines. Stop and see the variety that are displayed and running at the show. From the smaller ones pumping water and running washing machines, to the large 3-cylinder diesel motor used as a power plant, there’s something for everyone to see.
