Old Lister engine powers homemade tractor in Africa
Sammy Kiritu got in touch with us a few weeks ago with an unusual request…based in Nakuru in Kenya Sammy had purchased an old Lister Petter engine from someone in his local town, with the idea of using it to power a homemade tractor.
Having purchased this engine, which was previously used for grinding maize, he took it upon himself to modify the old engine from air cooled to water cooled, at home without even the basic engineering tools required.
Sammy got in touch with us for some engineering advice and guidance, which were of course happy to provide, however, looking the video below it seems as though Sammy has done an impressive job on his own.
The tractor has already been put to good use working on his farm and in the local village.
