Fowler showmans "Repulse" s/n 15652 of 1920 CU 977

John Fowler & Co. (Leeds) Ltd were engineers of Leathley Road, Hunslet, Leeds, in West Yorkshire, England who were founded in 1863 by Agricultural engineer John Fowler. Fowler & Co produced traction engines and ploughing implements and equipment, as well as railway equipment. Fowler & Co also produced the early Track Marshall tractor which was a tracked version of the Field Marshall tractor. British Railways Engineering Department locomotives ED1 to ED7 were built by Fowler & Co.

John Fowler was an agricultural engineer and inventor who was born in Wiltshire in 1826. He worked on the mechanisation of agriculture and moved to Leeds in the 1850s. He is credited with the invention of steam-driven ploughing engines. Fowler original sold products built by several other firms but in 1861 formed a partnership Fowler & Hewitson with a William Watson Hewitson in Leeds. Hewitson was also a partner in Kitson & Hewitson, and it was next door to Kitsons works that the steam plough works was built. On Hewitsons death the Firm was renamed Fowler & Co. in 1863.

Fowler's built a vast range of steam tractors, Steam rollers, traction engines and lorries, a number of which have been preserved and appear at shows throughout the summer season. They also built a few Showmans engines the last of which were built in the 1930s. No. 19782 Lion a B6 type in March 1932, No, 19783 King Carnival II in April 1932, with a year latter No. 19989 Onward in April 1933 and finally No. 20223 Supreme in March 1934.[1] The production being mainly rollers and road locomotives in between these.

Fowler ploughing engines (operating in pairs) being an impressive sight hauling a 5 furrow balance plough across a field.

Fowler diesel enginesEdit

The Fowler company started looking at the Diesel engine  market in 1929,as the steam market declined.  Diesel engine development was led by Harry Cooper, who had been in charge of internal combustion engine development at Fowlers since 1902. Cooper was killed in a motor accident on his way home from the 1934 Ipswich Royal show.  The company then appointed combustion engineer  Freeman Sanders later that year. Cooper had designed the Fowler diesel engines that were fitted to the Fowler lorries and crawler tractors. The production of lorries was abandoned after the 1932 Salter report placed an upper limit on the allowable maximum axle loading, the Fowler lorries were too heavy to carry a sensible payload at these limits.    Sanders contribution to Fowler diesel engines was the application of his 'Swirl Chamber' combustion cylinder head. Everything below head level was still pure 'Cooper'. The 6A Diesel engine fiitted to the 75 hp tractor and 80hp Gyrotiller remained as Cooper designed it, Sanders had no input into this design.  By 1936 Sanders had been appointed engineering Director.

Other machineryEdit

Fowlers diversified away from just building steam engines, with machines such as Concrete batching plant, road scarifiers and Diesel powered road rollers.

Another product was the Fowler Gyrotiller which was a range of large crawlers similar to the Holt / Caterpillar machines fitted with a rotary "plough" (Like a modern day power harrow). This was built in several sizes. The design was built under license from the inventor Norman Stoey an American manager of sugar cane plantations in Puerto-Rico. The rotary "Cutters" worked to a depth of 20 inches (510 mm). Units of 225 hp / 170 hp and 30, 40 and 80 hp. But falling sales lead to the end of production by 1937.

War yearsEdit

The firm was engaged in building Tanks and other war related heavy machinery for the Ministry of Supply and was then effectively Nationalised in 1941, when the Ministry took control. Following the end of War, the firm was sold off.

Post war declineEdit

Fowler FD2 (SEDavis)

A very original un-restored Fowler FD 2 belonging to S.E. Davis & Son Ltd. collection

Fowlers & Co. were taken over by the Sheffield firm of Thomas Ward Ltd in 1946, before being sold to British Leyland in 1975. Thomas Ward had bought Marshall, Sons & Co. of Gainsborough in 1936, and the operations were merged to an extent with Fowlers building Crawler tractors based on the Field Marshall tractor from Marshall. Thomas Ward bought Fowlers the firm from the Howard / Rotary Hoes Ltd business who briefly owned the company in 1945 and developed a smaller crawler fitted with a Rotavator unit. This machine was the Fowler FD2 crawler tractor. The company was known as Fowler-Marshall for a period.

From the late 1940s and 1950s Fowler's built a range of crawler tractors, the last model being the Challenger 33 of 125 hp.

Main article: Fowler Challenger range

In 1949 they built a rail locomotive based on the Fowler VFA crawler for use as a works loco. Records show 46 being built with only 3 sold in the UK. Only one is believed to survive and has been restored. The is loco was for sold at the end of September 2008, for over £20,000.[citation (source) needed]

See Track Marshall for later crawlers that evolved from the Leyland era of the firms ownership.

Preserved MachinesEdit

Fowler Steam EnginesEdit

There are hundreds of Fowler engines in preservation in the UK, listed in the The Traction Engine Register. As Fowlers were also a major exporter of engines to the former British colonies in the 1800 & early 20th century an number survive in places like Australia and New Zealand in preservation and in India, Pakistan, Africa and South America as rusting remains. some of these are being repatriated to the UK & restored by collectors as few original UK engines remain to be restored.

Please add any known machine details to the list from the UK or other countries (please note the country resident in if engine is non UK based).
