OptiPhil 57532 180 Fowler Gyrotiller either
Fowler Gyrotiller
I think Fowler was acquired by Marshalls of Gainsborough,
but I stand corrected. I don't know much about this beast
apart from the fact that it worked late one year near my
home and the land stayed so soft and wet the following
spring, they could not plant it !

Re: Fowler Gyrotiller
Hey Phil, the tiller looks like a machine built to scratch
the back of dinosaurs !

:-P

More seriously, is it a forestry equipment ?

:-D

I think many of these were built for export to the Caribbean
sugar plantations for tillage especially in the early part
of the 20th century.

David,

I looked around the web and found the first Fowler
Gyrotiller was first built around 1930. I think they were
designed for agricultural applications, I cannot imagine
those spinning ripper shanks would last long on forestry
applications !

I found this image at this site... there are other good
images also. They load slowly however !
