These units are a project looking for a home. When I bought them I hoped to get the engine running and use it to pump a pond. An electric pump ruled the day.
The Wisconsin engine is a 4 cyl. and does not run. The magneto is removed and in need of repair. The unit turns over by hand and I beleive it mechanically sound. It was used by a local village to power the pump.
The pump is one heavy unit. It has been outdoors and I do not believe it turns. It is too heavy for a boat anchor and may be just the thing for the right person.

I found this tonight and for some strange reason I thought of using it a GT. What say you?

May have to widen the frame a little :)

I bet you won't have any lack of power, but the steering may suffer from the weight.

Within the last week there has been a wheelhorse with one of these on it parked on a trailer at a house I pass every day. It looks neat with the Wisconsin shroud in place of the grill. It looks well done and I wondered if WH ever did that or it was someone's brain storm.

Doug, Wisconsin's were never offered on Wheel Horse. But I bet that thing will do anything you would want it to do, if you can get traction.

Here in Utah we water crops through irrigation, which means either running water in canals to the fields, and taking turns with other water users, or pumping it out of a river, etc.

When I was a boy, my neighbor had an irrigation pump with a 2 cylinder Wisconsin on it. It used a crank to start it and the biggest thing I remember about it was how tempermental it was to start... a major workout!!!

Way more power than the transaxle can put to the ground!

It would look pretty cool under the Allis-Graders hood :), but I would never have the time to work on it.

My community had a water pump that was ran with a Wisconsin engine.....back in the early 40's. It pushed water into town and into a 100' elevated tower.

I have an old military generator with a big Wisconsin on it like that. Since the gen doesn't work I am considering powering something else with it.
