The much sought after Maytag Catapult finally made its debut at the Hoosier Fly wheelers Fall Swap Meet.

The brainchild of engineer Paul Shelton, of Consuelo Manufacturing, Northwestern Indiana Division, was unveiled to cheers from throngs of onlookers.

The Catapult is the answer to many a collector's irritation at the small two stroke engines that raise the nape hair on a true engine man.

It was also used on various other makes besides Maytag, namely Briggs, Clinton, Tecumseh, and even a couple of lawn mowers and pumpkins.
