Shuttleworth Stationary Steam Engine F-898
Eight hp Single Cylinder
The Clayton and Shuttleworth 1893 Steam Engine is easily one of the more iconic engines created by Lincolnshire, England’s esteemed and almost historical engineering company. Even since they produced their first steam engine back in 1845, they became a significant manufacturer of similar machines in the country (the threshing machine, which they first built during the later 1840s, was another one of their iconic products). From then until the late 1930s, Clayton and Shuttleworth was a world-renowned company that even exported their products to countries such as Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. The Clayton and Shuttleworth 1893 Steam Engine was probably the last steam engine the company produced–making it a fantastic collector’s item and a valuable treasure in the world of engineering. The 1893 model is an eight-horsepower, single-cylinder steam engine, easily one of the strongest during that time.
The Clayton and Shuttleworth company also manufactured tractors from the early 1900s until its end during the 1930s. They also made oil engines, a crawler tractor powered by the gas-kerosene engine, and parts for various aircraft. Sadly, the company died during the Great Depression. Of course, the company’s legacy remains until today–and the engineering wonder that is the Clayton and Shuttleworth 1893 Steam Engine is one of their legacies.
