Dowdeswell is a family business that has been making ploughs for more than 40 years. The company is based in Southam, Warwickshire and was founded by Roger Dowdeswell when he realised that his own plough was not ideal for the Blue Lias Clay he farmed on in Warwickshire.

Dowdeswell originally made a linkage for a Caterpillar crawler, which allowed him to use more contemporary ploughs. This new linkage was such a success that soon Dowdeswell’s farming neighbours started to ask him to make one for them. He branched out into making linkages for other manufacturers and then licensed their production to a third-party engineering company.

Dowdeswell then designed a plough for use with his Caterpillar crawler to fill a gap in the market at that time. This was the DP1, the company’s first plough. This was a fully mounted three or four furrow offset model with an A frame. The success of this model led to the foundation of Dowdeswell Engineering in 1970.

Work was carried out at the Dowdeswell farm until the company decided to move into volume production in 1974 with the DP7. That year also saw the company winning the prestigious Burke Trophy for its range of reversible ploughs. The company expanded in 1980 when it bought forging premises in Birmingham and then bought Petit, a disc harrow manufacturer, in 1984. In 1985 it bought the manufacturing plant of Howard Rotivator in Norfolk. These purchases allowed the company to reposition itself as a more rounded tillage equipment manufacturer.

New Dowdeswell plough range for the 1980's

The late 1980s saw the company launch a new range of ploughs. These ‘Delta Furra’ models offered an adjustable furrow width and also an innovative parallel link alignment set-up that the company patented. This was designed to ensure that the ploughs would move in a straight line behind the towing tractor. The Delta Furra design formed the basis for the range of ploughs currently offered by the company, which are robust and easy to use.Dowdeswell 170 MA in 9 furrow format. Ploughing on-land only, manual adjustment,

Current plough range

These current ploughs include models from three to nine furrows. The DF170 is particularly impressive. At the more compact end of the range, the DF 100 works across three to five furrows and is perfect for use with tractors ranging up to 140hp. Next in the range is the DF 105, designed for used with four to six furrows and with tractors up to 190hp. The DF 141 can work with eight furrows and is designed for use with tractors up to 320hp. The DF 145, meanwhile, has the option of being used either for on-land or in-furrow ploughing. It also works with eight furrows.

The company also produces a front furrow press linkage, furrow press arms and a furrow press. The Harrow range, meanwhile, has the Speed Harra and spares for the 77, 84 and 55 Series disc harrows.

All Dowdeswell equipment benefits from the founder’s own farming heritage and is built with the practical needs of farmers uppermost in mind. The quality of construction is such that a used Dowdeswell could well be a sensible investment.
