The Wilesco steamroller Old Smoky
We have been producing the Old Smoky steamroller in this form since the mid-1960s; it was the first mobile model steam engine in the Wilesco range.
This model of a mobile steam engine was based on a widespread steam roller that was used in road construction until the 1950s.
The color scheme hasn't changed since the 60s!
Mobile as well as stationary steam roller
Catwalk, chain steering and gear coupling are natural details of our Old Smoky. The coupling - operated by a rod on the left of the driver's cab - enables the steamroller to be operated as a stationary steam engine. The Old Smoky with its 230 ccm tank is strong enough to pull accessories in mobile operation as well as to drive drive models in stationary operation. The aluminum roller wheels of this steam scooter are anodized and painted.
For indoor as well as outdoor use
Our Wilesco steam roller D365 is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use. Since the Wilesco D365 has a flywheel that can be started in both directions, it can drive both forwards and backwards, and it is steered via a timing chain. The chimney of the steam roller smokes true to the original during operation. The running time with one charge of original Witabs dry fuel is approx. 15 minutes. When using other makes of solid fuel, the running time may be slightly shorter.
Steam roller also available as a kit
We also offer the D365 as a steam roller kit . This kit (D375 / D376) has the same "features" as the already assembled steamroller. With this kit you will find out up close how steam engines are built and work step by step on the combination of all the individual parts. The kit can also be easily assembled by inexperienced steam engine enthusiasts, thanks to the detailed, richly illustrated assembly instructions. The approximate time required to assemble the steam roller is three to four hours. It is advantageous if it can be installed without interruption as far as possible. All individual parts of the steam tractor were subjected to careful quality control before they left our steam engine factory.
Please note: The kit of our steamroller Old Smoky is not available in the color combination black / nickel!
A wonderful and highly recommended souvenir of the old days for all steam engine fans.
2 WITABS dry fuel are included in the scope of delivery of this steam engine, but please do not forget to ensure optimal steam enjoyment with your D365 for fuel replenishment.
