We have a range of interesting engines and motors on display at the Faraday Museum of Technology, many of which are examples of what would've been used on farms to operate shearing sheds and water pumps.
The Fullagar engine is a massive and impressive piece of machinery. It was used to supplement power during peak times and was a life saver after the 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake supplying power for displaced families in temporary accommodation at Nelson Park.
