Geocache Description:


Denna lokomobil är tillverkad av Marshall i England och är av den stationära typen, dvs den kan inte flytta sig av egen kraft utan behöver dras av hästar eller oxar. Den har en ångmaskin ovanpå pannan och dess syfte var att driva det stora svänghjulet. Från svänghjulet kunde man via en bred rem föra över kraften till den maskin man ville driva, t.ex ett sågverk. Lokomobiler var ganska vanliga i Sverige innan traktorn med förbränningsmotor blev vanlig.

This Steam Tractor was manufactured by Marshall in England. It is of the stationary type, it cannot move by itself but has to be pulled by horses or oxes. It has a steam engine on top of the boiler and it turned the big flywheel. From the flywheel a belt was used to transfer the power to the user, a sawmill for example. Steam tractors were rather common in Sweden before tractors with combustion engines became common.

Gömman består av en 35 mm filmburk. / The cache is a 35 mm film canister.
