5 HP Economy After Restoration


This is me standing next to my pride and joy. I bought this 5 HP Economy in 1993 after my father-in-law located it for me. It was my first, and I was told that it was a Hercules - thus I painted it green. I later realized that it was an Economy. :) Oh well, live and learn! It will stay green as long as I'm around just to remind me how much we all have to learn about "old iron."

The darn thing got too heavy to load and unload into my utility trailer so my son DJ welded up a trailer for it that could be pulled behind my truck. Pictures of my green 5 HP Economy on its trailer will follow in the spring. (See Mini Engine Show.)
