I don’t know what these are called but I am going to call it a donkey =) They are used everywhere but you see them most in rural areas. They run at such a low rmp that you hear a thud, thud, thud as they puttle along. I would guess that most farmers are deaf. Water steams out the top which I guess is the coolant that you regularly need to top up as there is no cap on it. You can see the size of the fly wheel which I guess allows for the low rmp. I haven’t seen one being started yet but would like to.
