Corn Grinder Accessory for My Eclipse Engine
« on: June 29, 2019, 06:10:57 pm »
I've been looking for an accessory for my full sized Eclipse engine to take to shows.  People attending the shows seem to like to see the engines doing something, but the accessories are heavier than the engines!  I needed something that I could pick up and move easily.  I found this corn grinder at a local sale, and it already had the belt drive pulley on it.  It seemed the perfect match for my Fairbanks-Morse Eclipse engine.

As Jan said ... Nice set-up and nice to have an appropriate load to run.

My son loves to see corn grinders.
Perhaps extend the cart, so the two are married together?

You'll have to get him a small burr mill  ;) this one was only $20 at Mt. Pleasant

I do have a 2 HP dishpan FMZ garden tractor.  https://youtu.be/CebZ_mRCIEQ
I could belt it up to that.

This is a great paring Doug. I like that the corn grinder is proportional to the engine. I think it would be cool to put the corn grinder on a small cart like the one on your Eclipse.  You could pull it behind your Eclipse Engine Cart.

This set up was made for the same reason
