George Fowell seemed to have very close connections with France, but I'm struggling to find much early history of the firm. They were believed t...

Re: French Dumper

Looks like George Fowell were producing dumpers for the French market - I wonder if this model spawned the similar types shown in some of the brochures on this thread? I had a drive of this one (which either came back to UK or never went to France!) a couple of weeks ago: http://www.classicmachinery...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Australian manufacturer AT Harman

Found some images of the products of an (unknown to me) Australian maker AT Harman.
Seems they were active from the late 1880s until early 1970s, dealing in, repairing and eventually manufacturing new machines.
