The history of the company, needless to say, is just as interesting as the tractor itself. Fowler is picture10an agricultural engineer that first made steam tractors. The company started producing fuel engine-powered tractors right after the Second World War (specifically during the 1940s-1950s period), although the company actually started producing diesel engines during the 1930s (right when the market demand for steam engines due to the demand for diesel ones).

After the 1948 model, Folwer created a VFA crawler. Only 46 were made—and only one is believed to have survived (it was bought in 2008 at more than 20,000 pounds). The VF line lasted from 1948 to 1952, while succeeding VFA line was built from 1952 to 1957. The Challenger line was made from 1952 to 1972.

Still looking for description of this image —


I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
