Richard Hornsby & Sons was an engine and machinery manufacturer in Grantham, Lincolnshire. The company grew into a major manufacturer of agricultural machinery at their Spittle Gate Works. The firm went on to produce steam engines used to drive threshing machines, and other equipment such as traction engines: their portable steam engine was one of their most important products and the market leader. Very few of the early machines built by Richard Hornsby & Co. survive, but examples of the major types are still to be found.
No other example located.
