Personally i don't think it would get much use. engines wold have to be portable to use it and a lot of them are fastened to a trailer.

It is a good idea, but I have to agree with Mr. 2day, I think few people would use it. Once most of the big engines, the ones that could really show off, get set in to the display area they probably won't want to move them around a lot. I often move two big gooseneck loads of engines to our local show, help my buddy with another two loads, and by the time they are unloaded I am already sick of moving them! And, most everybody wants to run an engine slow and they run fine, but when they try to run at rated speed they often find it won't do it or run like crap if they do. Anyone can make one sit and run all day, few of them can get it to pull the rated load. I saw firewood with a 7-1/2hp Galloway running about 80% speed, anything slower and you just don't get anything done.
