Maytag washing machine gas motors

When we see these attractive little motors on display putt-putting to themselves at tractor and farm shows, it's hard to imagine them serving any useful purpose but for many farm families without electricity in the first half of the last century it was a godsend. Imagine doing handwashing of clothes for a family of 6 or 8. Maybe one would still be useful to power a minibike or go kart. Hmmmm.
