Ploughing Engines

John Fowler of Leeds did a great deal to develop the ploughing engine in the 1850’s, and although other makers constructed them in large numbers, Fowlers are a name synonymous with this type of engine. Mainly used in those areas of the country devoted to arable farming the engines stood on either side of a field and drew the implement progressively back and forth across the field by means of the wire rope and drum mounted horizontally under the boiler.
