Ploughing engine taking coal brought out by the horse and cart
Two 18 hp rope engines by Fowler known as a ploughing engine they were purchased in pairs complete with a Balance plough, Cultivator, two Water carts and living Van. Grandfather purchased these around 1915-16 difficult to get them because of the 1st war. Father remembered that they came in basic form no brass or add on’s. Two men and Monty Holt went up to Fowlers works, Leeds I think, and drove them back to HP with two of Fowler's engineers to demonstrate and set them right. Grandfather had a pair of 5hp Fowlers that they brought from Spratton to HP however they were not man enough on the heavier ground, so they were traded for the 18hp models.
