U.S. FORESTERS CARRY THEIR POWER
CD 1966051 E&MP31.004
Away from their source of electricity, U.S. Foresters use the power furnished by power plants of this type to bore dynamite holes in trees to clear a swathe, and thus prevent the spread of forest fires.
Weighing only 118 pounds, these portable gasoline electric power plants furnish power for portable electric tools away from their source of electricity. They also furnish power for lights in Summer camps, fishing smacks, and motorboats laying to.
They are manufactured by the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company.
