Let’s mobilise!

Here’s a quick video of the mobilized “maize sheller” I described a couple of posts below. For the techies out there it’s run by a diesel motor at the back, with 2 clutches, one for the barrel de-sheller on top, one for driving the rear axle. There are no WOF’s or MOT’s in Uganda, mercifully for the owners of these contraptions but worryingly for anyone unfortunate enough to stray within range of them. However spot the side mirror and tiny little reflective patches for increased visibility – and a headlight for when the pleasures of whacking corn from the cobs goes on into the wee hours.
Brilliant, and yours for only 4.7 million Ugandan shillings (NZ$2,400).
