Photo How many Ohlsson Rice Tools are out there?

I used to have a Ohlsson rice hedge trimmer.
Bought it from a guy in England across the pond.

I never did get around to getting it restored but bought
all the parts to do it, then sold it to another guy for his
Man cave. Here are some pictures of it & A pinterest link
that may or may not work for some of you.

I was searching for information about them awhile back & found
an archived post on the stack somewhere, someone mentioned
that they had a Ohlsson Rice weed whacker!!! I went looking
but cant find any info about them & this got me wondering.

How many types of tools out there are powered by this little engine??

Someone on the O&R group said that there were over 400 different applications of the O&R engine. They made a number of different engines which all look similar, but are different enough to some people. I have a dozen different O&Rs, what makes them interesting is the tools that they are on. If you could label O&R with one word it would be "cantankerous". They can be a royal pain to get running and stay running!

They share the blood of the stubborn vintage model airplane engine

I think a shovel would be 3 times faster than that O&R blower!

Here’s a small tiller I had a few years ago. Also had a chainsaw and a drill at one time.

I have a Polaris Power Pole identical to the one in post #6. It works okay, but the engine has to be stored in a warm garage or you will never get it started. I also have a Drillgine as Mike refers to in post 9. I have not found a derby tiller yet, but have a few of the tiny tiger generators, an amp champ and a couple of parts engine. My favorite is my comet C-SAW. It was 8* out when I made that video.

My wife has a pump, two chain saws, amp champ, an engine with a centrifugal clutch sprocket, and the engine to a derby tiller.

A friend has had a lot of O&R’s over the years. He has a chicken power for a bicycle tiny tiger, water pump, drill, circular saw, and I don’t remember the rest.

I had an NOS air brush compressor several years back with an O&R engine on it.

Just look at all the rechargeable battery tools available today, for the most part in the 1960s and 1970s there were equivalent tools with O&R engines.

I've owned 1/2" drill, circular saw, hedge trimmer, water pumps, generators, tiller, bike engines, radio controlled boat water-cooled engine, chain saws; string trimmer, and probably more that I've forgotten.

Does someone have a Picture of a O.r. string trimmer???
I think it would win the award for being the smallest one out there?? probably smaller than a feather-lite weed eater??

Ive just never seen one.

There was an O&R trolling motor and a small snow blower. From what I've read O&R made 1 hp and a 3/4 hp "industrial" engines. The Power Pole engine I have is 3/4 hp.

I bought this Tiny Tiger generator a couple of years ago and was told that the carrying case is original to the generator. Since then I have been told that it is and others say no, so I would like to know if anybody knows for sure if they came with a case. If it does not go with it surely works very good for the purpose. Thanks,Jim
