Sugar Cane Jalopy

sugar cane jalopy

This basic engine mounted on a cycle cart is very versatile. It runs on diesel.It is used for turning generator alternators and tube well ground water extraction. The engine is manufactured by indigenous factories in the Punjab, especially Jullundur and Ludhiana. The price is right and maintenance is simple. If the machine is attached to a flatboard on wheels it turns into a roofless vehicle which is known as a Gadda Car.

Here it is used for extracting sugar cane juice and selling to eager customers at gathering points like cinema halls and office complexes. It is a very soothing drink in the summer months. Lime juice and ice is added to the green sweet juice.

When the day is done the sugar cane juice seller connects it to the wheels of his cart with a belt and away he heads home in his self made jalopy.
