Default Florida Flywheeler's 2018

Florida Flywheeler's 2018
February 21st-24th

Flywheeler's is a 300 plus acre outdoor event focusing on the mechanization of Florida over the last century. Lots to see and do for men and women, boys and girls of all age's

It is a dry camping event so come with full water and empty dookie tanks. Golf carts will be available for rent but bring your own powered contraption if possible. Anything goes up to 5' wide, really!

Last picture quantifies the previous picture, har!

Just a note to remind those attending Flywheelers that once you get in here during the day during the show hours of 9am 4pm, you cannot go back out during those hours unless it is an emergency, so I would suggest that you stop somewhere and get your supplies before you get here it saves a little frustration, otherwise you can go back out after 4pm to shop.

Featuring Implements, Stationary Engines & Ferguson Tractors

Our 7th annual semi-organized Bluebird rally. We have worked with the Flywheelers staff and have again been graciously provided with our own dedicated Bluebird area. We had a good attendance in 2017. If you like old engines, tractors, cars, motorcycles, parts, bric-a-brac, flea markets, food, stuff, displays, period villages etc., come on down. A great time to do as little or as much as you would like. 240 acres of fun! Lots of things for the ladies to do to and you don't need a 'Bird to attend!

We would like to have a head count of those that plan on attending.

Leave your info here or contact Ryan Saari at: ryansaari@tampabay.rr.com.

When this engine is running and you are standing anywhere near the building you can feel each compression stroke under your feet.



This Snow engine is 400hp @ 120rpm. It has double acting 4 cylinder 4 stroke with a 20" bore X 36" stroke that is over 40,000ci displacement. It runs on natural gas and was used to pump natural gas from wells to gas supply businesses. It's flywheel is 12' in diameter and weighs approximately 12 tons. This one was in use until 1977.

Sally and I will be attending.
We have been looking forward to this for a long time.
Any problems with bringing pets?
We have a Golden Retriever that loves a attention.
