The article presents information on the hot bulb tractor engines invented in Great Britain. Farmers used tractors with hot bulb engine because of its reliability and ability to burn any liquid fuel. Some of its disadvantages are its awkwardness to start, inefficiency and rough-running. When the engine reaches its working temperature, it is turned over manually using the heavy flywheel.
