A trio of Root & VanDervoorts

Post by Triumphline on Mon Sep 20, 2010 12:24 pm

I finally got a few of my R&Vs out together. They are all Triumph Line L Line engines. From left to right: 1912 AL 1hp; 1913 BL 2hp; & 1914 GL 12hp kerosene.

That 1914 GL is a nice bit of tackle,

What is the size of that flywheel?

Hi Paul,
the 12hp flywheels are 40 inches in diameter and weigh 385 pounds each. I always forget how big an engine it is until I actually have to move it Shocked

Some specifications of the L Line engines:

Each flywheel of the 12hp weighs more than the little 1hp!

That 1914 GL looks an awesome engine.

I bet that does take some moving around.

Nice Photo's

The two little R&Vs and the little one make for a nice big load.

A few shreded wheat would have to be had at breakfast time to move that about then, its a lovely looking engine all the same.
