Hercules

Many print and internet sources state that all Fageols drivetrains used Hercules engines. “They are wrong,” says PBM Vice President, Tom Shafer.

It is true that 1930’s Twin Coaches used Hercules engines, but the post-war ones are stamped “Fageol”. These post-war Fageol engines were made in the Kent, OH factory Twin Coach plant.

Hercules was not too far away in Canton, but there was no association.
