Hercules built 11/2 HP model GH. Built under the Arco label, these hit and miss engines are still around, you just have to look for them. Not much different than and Hercules engine with the exception of a tin cover on the crankcase to enclose the crankcase. More often than not, these tin covers are mising. They are not nescessary for the engine to run, they kept dust and pesticides out and spent oil and grease in.

As for the rig in your photo - looks like it had an electric motor on it, not an engine - perhaps a repurposed frame?

We were a Hardie dealer back in the days. All the units we serviced were orange in color. That unit is a model 99. We put a 1 horse power electric motor on one and made a pressure (400 PSI) washer out of it.

I think your sprayer probably had a Briggs & Stratton model A engine on it. I had one like it years ago.

Our engine club (NJAEMC) has one on a steel frame with the ARCO engine on it. Circa 1927 Low speed high pressure unit. it was used to spray an apple orchard, and could reach 35 feet in the air!
