Energic 511 Tracteur (original shape) available from 1950/late 54.
In the 1950s the new 511 tractor from Energic was showcased. It had a new in house Patissier manufactured engine (that was also used in the Energic 411 motoculteur of the time). The initial early models had a smaller steering wheel which was changed to a larger type in 1954. See more information on Energic tracteur 511 mark 2 from 1954/5 here.
Engine. Single-cylinder Patissier engine, petrol (essence), 11cv, 700cm3, Alésage x course: 95 x 98 mm, air-cooled, four-stroke with enclosed Lateral valves. The cylinder head is made from special aluminium.
(Soupapes latérales inclinéees, embiellage monté sur de forts roulements à galets, tête de bielle cémentée et rectifiée tournant sur de forts roulements à aiguilles). Culasse en alliage spécial d’aluminium.
Lubrication. By constant circulation of oil held within the sump of the engine, 3.5 litres. The circulation by pumped pressure also from crankcase compression. (Graissage par pompe incorporée).
Cooling. One large aluminium fan is mounted at the front of the engine, running on ball bearings. This system draws air into the hood circulating around the engine, ensuring cooling. this system was tested in extremely high temperatures and proved effective. (Refroidissement par air forcé (ventilateur puissant).
Starting. By hand crank, either directly on to the motor, or via the multiplicator. Both located at the front of the engine.
Air filter/Cleaner. Metallic element – (dependent upon the element that can be oil surface coated).
Steering. By worm gear.
Carburateur. Zénith with lever for easier starting. in the cold.( Zénith tous terrains, avec volet d’air pour départs à froid).
Gears. The three-speed gearbox is built within the engine offering 2 variations either 3 forward and 1 reverse or 6 forward and 3 reverse gears.12 gears were obtainable as an optional extra.
Speeds. Either 3 or 6 speed.
3 speed giving forward speeds of; 1st gear 2 kmh, 2nd gear 3 kmh, 3rd gear 9 kmh. + 1-speed reverse.
6 speed giving forward speeds of; 1st gear 2 kmh, 2ndt gear 3 kmh, 3rd gear 4 kmh, 4th gear 7 kmh, 5th gear 12 kmh, 6th gear 18 kmh.+ 3 speed in reverse.
Clutch. Multiple disc type immersed in oil within the chassis casing, very supple/progressive – pedal operated. PTO; front (revolving at the speed of the engine), side and rear (turning between 125 and 1800 rp/m). Clutch engagement for the PTO systems. ( PTO rear and side options).Embrayage est du type à disques multiples baignat dans l’huile.
Exhaust/Silencer. Fitted in a frontal position right-hand side (when in the driving position), away from the driver.
Magneto. Either Morel or Lavalette type. (Allumage par magnéto à déclic, assurant un démarrage instantanné).
Volt system. 6 volt systems (7 amps), this could later be converted to 12 volts.
Wheels. 3 options; Pneumatic Tyre wheels front 400 x 15 and 750 x 18 Rear. (Dunlop T 17, T 32 or Michelin CR) Blockage is independent for each wheel. Wheel width is regular-able between in 9 stages between 0.85m and 1.15m. These widths are obtained by positioning the wheels into different positions, facing inside and out.
Brakes. On each rear wheel shoe type, pressure by manual foot pedals, independent that can be linked.
Hitch. 3 point lift manual, automatic or hydraulic type Dynabloc.(depending upon the option selected).Breveté system S.G.D.G. (patented in France and the UK) articulated strengthened with universal fitment to all ancillary equipment. Enabling the adjustment of draft and other characteristics required to operate the implements at different depths. The Dynabloc automatic was tested some 200 000, lifting 250kgs, without loss of lift capability.
Ploughing depth. Up to 12 ins (30,48 cms) dependent upon soil conditions.
Fuel consumption. 1 1/4 to 2 litres of fuel per hour dependent upon working conditions. the tank holds approx.17 liters.(Réservoir de carburant).
Turning circle/Angle of safe working. 1.80m, it was able to operate safely at a maximum angle of 30 degrees at a width of 0.85 m.
Weight. Really depends on the tracteur set up. An example a tracteur with standard tyres + Type B relevage + with tyres full of water (78 kgs) + metal wheel weights + (92 kgs) = 875 kgs. It depends how you set the tracteur up for ploughing more weight and for lighter sparying (without 200 liters of fluide) – a lot less. With a brabant plough = 970 kgs.
Dimensions. Length 2.2 m, width min. 0.85 m to 1015 m and height to steering wheel 1.15 m. (Longueur totale 2.2 m, Largeur de 0.85 m – 1.15 m, à 1.15 m Hauteur au volant). Ground clearance front axle 37 cms and rear axle clearance 28 cms.
Optional equipment/adaptions. Energic 511 models; Electric start, lights, 3 point lift hydraulic Dynabloc, rotivator/fraise, high pressure reservoir for the the treatment of fruit trees/pulvérisateur (haute pression pour le traitement des arbes fruitiers). Trailer/remorquages. Wheel weights. Poulies diameter 180mm offering adaption perpendicular to the PTO. Hoe/cultivateur special 10 dents, winch.
Plough; Brabant mono soc 1/4 turn versions cylindrical x 2 (25 and 30 cms), version 1/2 helicoidaux (20 cms).
Model B from 1953 fitted with a winch/treuil option. (steel cable 100, 150 and 200m in length).
Model B from 1952 fitted with a Hay/grass cutter Barre de coupe option.

Rear lifts options;
****Rear lifts options*****
Type A Dynabloc automatic. Low maintenance, lifting capacity of 250 kgs, The PTO/Prise de force comes out of the back of the Dynabloc system when lifted out of the way. You can either tow from the chap/crochet on the dynabloc or the bar de outils. This system could be fitted to a narrow width of 511/2 as shown in the photo above. (Attelage type S)
Type B manual lift. Operated with a lever system pulling through gears and ratchet a cable to raise the towing hook for the ploughs etc.
You could either pull the implements/outils directly behind the tracteur or set them at an angle to suit the type of agriculture, viticulture you were operating in.
Type C hydraulic lift/revelage hydraulique. Using a 3 point system – operating through the pressure of oil through the Dynabloc, that can be infinitely variable for height and pressure.
