About us

A family run & owned business, established for 150 years.

Established for 150 years, E.Bowden & Sons is a family run and owned business, located on the edge of Dartmoor in Bovey Tracey.

The business has developed from its blacksmith days where it made Agricultural machinery and implements and even produced a show-winning patented rake.┬áIn 1946 the company took on the David Brown Franchise, developing quite a network of customers around the Dartmoor area and further afield. When David Brown turned to Case, the company decided to take on the Same – Deutz Fahr dealership until 2012.

Throughout our time many machinery franchises have been held and many still remain. The Garden machinery soon became a big part of the business and we have been STIHL dealers now for over 25 years. We are currently dealers for a range of quality garden machinery including STIHL, Viking, lawnflite, cub cadet and many more.

Our latest addition to the business is the franchise for TGB ATVs which so far have proved very successful providing quality at a reasonable price. Our parts department is well stocked with a variety of agricultural and Horticultural spares (see the parts tab for more information on what we stock).

The business is currently owned by Henry and Derek Bowden and our exceptional level of expertise, ranging from old to new, in agricultural and garden machinery service and sales is reflected by our customer loyalty and network. Being a family business it is in our interests to provide a genuine service with your interests at heart.
