The Ferguson Tractor, this common sight seen on farms up and down the country. There are none of the luxuries found in the tractors of today, not even a padded seat for the driver, The sign measures 30cm x 40cm.
It was Harry Ferguson's most successful design, commonly known as the Little Grey Fergie
. It was manufactured from 1946 to 1956. It was a light weight but effective design.
During 1936 the first production Ferguson tractors were built in Huddersfield, Yorkshire by the David Brown Company. This tractor, the Ferguson Model 'A' incorporated Harry Ferguson's 'suction side' hydraulic control system, the key to solving sensitive automatic control of three point mounted implements. The combination of Ferguson's converging three point hitch, patented on 3 July 1928 with his 'suction side control' valve is the key to the success of all subsequent Ferguson and later Massey Ferguson 'Ferguson System' tractors.
In order to get volume production with lower costs Harry Ferguson, following a demonstration of his tractor before Henry Ford Senior in October 1938, did a gentlemen's agreement with Ford to produce the Ferguson tractor in Detroit starting mid 1939. About 300,000 of these tractors, known as "Ford Ferguson" were produced up to 30 June 1947
By 1945 Ferguson had made a manufacturing agreement with the Standard Motor Company of Coventry, England to produce the Ferguson tractor incorporating all their latest improvements and to be known as the TE20, i.e. 'Tractor England'.
