Agriculture Aveling Cogs Engineering Figures Machinery Porter Technological Traction Tractor Facets


EDITORS COMMENTS
This illustration from the late 19th century showcases the intricate design of an Aveling & Porter Traction Engine, a remarkable piece of machinery that revolutionized agriculture in Britain around 1880. The eight figures in this illustration highlight the key technological facets of this steam-powered traction engine, which was a significant departure from traditional farming methods. The first figure depicts the engine's boiler, where water was heated to produce steam. The second figure illustrates the engine cylinder, where the steam was used to create mechanical power. The third figure showcases the crankshaft and connecting rods, which transferred the power from the cylinder to the wheels. The fourth figure demonstrates the gear train, which allowed the engine to transmit power to the wheels at different speeds. The fifth figure highlights the clutch mechanism, which enabled the engine to be disengaged from the wheels when not in use. The sixth figure illustrates the driving wheels, which provided the traction necessary to move the engine and any attached implements. The seventh figure showcases the cab, which provided a space for the driver to operate the engine. The eighth and final figure illustrates the flywheel, which helped to regulate the engine's power output and maintain a consistent speed. This illustration offers a fascinating glimpse into the complex engineering behind the Aveling & Porter Traction Engine, a machine that transformed agriculture by making it possible to pull heavy loads and plow large fields more efficiently than ever before. The intricate design of the engine, with its cogs, gears, and other mechanical components, is a testament to the ingenuity and innovation of the engineers and inventors of the time.
