How come the old guy has to shovel the coal, while the young guy drives? These machines are exactly why horses are now pets. Love it!

The next video of that Case Steamer shows it hooked to a dyno, the run was limited by the belt slippage but was calculated at 5000 lbs ft of torque, about 175 RPM, something like 170 HP.
What a beast!
