Default Crossley Horizontal - what model?

Hi,
I've been in the back of a shed full of stuff. Liked the look of this Crossley but, I have no knowledge of such items.
Flywheel is a disk type rather than spoked and its 22" dia.
Round item and pump casing on top and at right hand are nothing to do with Crossley.
Clearly heavy - but, how heavy.
Value?
Mike

Looks like a 1040. Crossley didn't hold back on the iron and they are heavy!

Hello I have a Crossley much the same and it is a ph 10/50 which is very heavy you also got a 10/30 and 10/40. I have a parts book /instruction book reprinted by David Edgington but no mention of weight.

I'm hedging towards a 1050, the writing is quite small in comparison with the block.

How heavy? the 1050 is a serious lump, I don't have exact weights, and no doubt someone will correct me as soon as I say, but 350-400kgs, or thereabouts, they are very heavy for their size, 1030 and 1040 not too bad, but still heavy size for size with other makes.

Value will depend on condition. I sold a 1030 for 280 early this year, which had a weak mag, but I cannot recall seeing one of the bigger variants in this range selling, again, someone will no doubt comment in detail.

Paul.

Its a 1050, weighs 860lb(~380Kg) Heavy. Have not had much luck on typical pricing but, certainly these are not expensive.
