And the parts keep coming...
25th October 2017
Over two years on from the closure of the plough manufacturing side of Dowdeswell Engineering, Dowdeswell parts services are still going strong and producing new parts to keep the remainder of the over 28,000 ploughs which Dowdeswell Engineeering produced in working condition.
Many customers are surprised that we can still supply ‘off the shelf’ parts for DP1 and DP2 ploughs produced back in the 1970’s.
It is also quite regular for a phone call to start with ‘can you still get parts for a DP6’ or ‘l have a very old DP7’. Most of these ploughs were no longer in production when l started working here 30 years ago which is testament to the design and build of the ploughs.
Parts only become obsolete when they are no longer economically viable i.e. the plough is worth less than the cost of the replacement part.
We do however still supply some sub-components and repair kits of major parts such as beams, headstocks and turnover arms, so it is worth a phone call before deciding to scrap your plough.
Production of Genuine British made wearing parts at our sister company in the Black Country continues as normal.
We still have the ability to design and update new/modified wearing parts to adapt to the changing needs of our customers.
