Stationary Engines

Over 100 stationary engines


Some are quite rare, mainly the older one-off handbuilt ones. We are presently sorting out the stationary engines. They are mainly in one area but are to be found also in the huge back shed.

Steam & Traction

In our collection there is 4 Traction Engines :

Garrett,

Burrell,

McLaren

and a John Fowler.

 

We also have a restored Dubs 0-4-0 Steam Engine built in 1873


There is :

  • a restored engineers railway jigger from 1895
  • a motorised jigger
  • large steam engine headlights
  • platform furniture including 3 baggage trollies

Fenton tells me there is another engine in bits lying around somewhere

Earthmovers

Early tractors, earthmovers and agricultural machines…


Graeme Craw, the collector, was a contractor building some of Auckland’s important roads in the 1950s, including the northern approach to the Harbour Bridge, and Scenic Drive. Consequently, he amassed a large amount of earthmoving equipment, and developed a great appreciation for the early earthmovers that literally shaped the face of New Zealand with the Kauri Industry.

We have early tractors, 1909 Fitch Four Drive, a range of Allis Chalmers, Caterpillar, Farmall, Fowler, International Harvester, Case, Ferguson, Fiat, Aveling & Porter and many rare, unique bulldozers

Many are unrestored.

We also have scoops and graders from every period, some made in NZ (Thames, Christchurch), others being the only known surviving model of a certain type.
