Very little information is available concerning the Fey company, which was based in Augsburg, Germany. It is thought to have operated from 1920, and over the next twenty years or so it produced a number of different models of rotary motor-cultivator ("Bodenfräse" in German). The first of these was an unsuccessful four-wheeled 24 hp machine, which soon gave way to a new lightweight design. By 1927 there was a range of machines available from 5 to 15 hp, the manufacture of which was continued by other firms until the 1950s.
