Working Out the Kinks of Steam Plowing

Steam plowing moves past John Fowler’s two-engine system of steam cultivation

Fowler Five-Furrow Balance Plow
A Fowler five-furrow balance plow that was still at work commercially in the 1960s. The engine is a 1919 18 nhp Fowler (no. 15363). The plow is just beginning its return run, while the now-idle engine behind it has already moved forward into position for its next pull.
