Previous - Next

1895. The rotter water-engine (fig. 506.) consists of a horse, frame, and wheels, on which is placed a water-barrel, and under it an iron roller. It is an excellent machine for lawns and roads, as they may be watered and rolled by the same operation; the person who directs the water irrigating the space to be rolled, not that which has undergone the operation.
