Martin Pope By Robin Page 3: But now he is selling his unique collection of Ferguson tractors and a selection of implements, all designed by the Northern Irish genius Harry Ferguson, the maker of the greatest ever British tractor. For the uninitiated, the original Ferguson is instantly recognisable: The first one was produced in and many are still going today. At 79 he is reluctantly letting them go. Five weeks ago he sold his collection of mixed vintage tractors; on November 14 his Ferguson collection goes under the hammer at Roudham in Norfolk. The fact that Paul has collected more than 80 Ferguson tractors and about assorted Ferguson implements and machines is in itself remarkable. He was born the son of a thatcher in a Suffolk cottage with no electricity, no running water, an outside loo and squares of newspaper for lavatory paper.
Dave spent several months this past winter putting all of the research together. If you have any questions, you may contact Dave directly by calling Evolution of Harvesting Grain with Combines Threshing The development of what we Americans call a combine spans years but acceptance was not universal. The evolution moved by spurts in different parts of the country.
The working innards came after learning about using threshing machines.

History[ edit ] Three-point linkage on a TE20 The model name came from Tractor, England 20 horsepower  not the true power delivered but from a formula based on engine size. The TE range of Ferguson tractors was introduced in England in ,  following 30 years of continuous development of ‘The Ferguson System’ from The first work was to design a plough and linkage to integrate the tractor with its work in a manner that was an engineering whole.
The automatic control system is now employed by almost all tractor manufacturers worldwide. A British patent was applied for by Harry Ferguson in and granted the following year. By the early s the linkage design was finalised and is now adopted as international standard category I. Just one prototype Ferguson System tractor, known as the Ferguson Black, was built to further technical development and for demonstrating to potential manufacturers.
During 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 and patented on 5 February patent no The combination of Ferguson’s converging three point hitch, patented on 3 July patent no with his ‘suction side control’ valve is the key to the success of all subsequent Ferguson and later Massey Ferguson ‘Ferguson System’ tractors, the most important of which are the TE and TO 20 models.
It was the production of the Model ‘A’ that led in to the David Brown line of tractors. An English Ford-Ferguson in Suffolk Ford 9N Ferguson tractor at an orange orchard at Palinyewah, New South Wales , Australia During the war years the Ferguson design team developed many improvements to both tractor and implements and started to make arrangements to manufacture in the United Kingdom.
The agreement with Ford in was to include production at the Ford plant at Dagenham , Essex, but the UK Ford company would not do it.

Hough Loader Legacy Frank G. Hough’s front-end loader innovations are still on the job today. The simple curves in the loader arms increased wheel clearance, allowed for larger carry loads and improved the bank-digging capabilities of the machine. Front-end loaders are so commonplace that they blend into the mechanical landscape at construction sites. Most farms, many estates and even some suburban homes are equipped with at least one.
This ever-practical tool is designed principally for loading bulk materials and excavation, but it gets used for everything from hoisting engines out of pickup trucks to scraping away sod for a new flowerbed. Who built the first tractor loader is anybody’s guess, but it was likely the result of an enterprising farmer’s desire to find an easier way to load manure. Some primitive tractor-mounted loaders used winches to raise and lower the bucket, while others employed more tenuous gear-driven mechanical linkages.
Hough pronounced Huff , a young engineer in Chicago, believed in the potential of hydraulics and pioneered a much better way in the early s. With his initial invention, Hough excavated the footings for a material-moving legacy whose contributions included the first production wheel-tractor-mounted front-end loader, first integrated wheel loader, first four-wheel drive loader and the largest mechanically driven loader, among many others.
Motoring Ploughing the Ferguson furrow Farmers were wary of tractors until a young Irish engineer seduced them with one that was both safe and reliable. Those of more advanced years will relate the name to the original little grey “Fergies” which would run on paraffin and came with a comprehensive tool kit – one spanner, which fitted everything. Younger types might think of the latest Massey-Ferguson behemoths which can cost more than an entire smallholding.
Whatever the model, the man to thank for the machines that helped to revolutionise agriculture is the late Harry Ferguson, a studious-looking engineer who was born on an Irish farm in , but couldn’t stand the sight of muck. He was never interested in improving his technique with a pitchfork, but he did have a fascination with all things mechanical, and at 18 he set up in business with his brother, fixing cars and bicycles.

Paul Rackham, of Camp Farm, near Thetford, in Norfolk, England, sold what was considered to be the most complete set of vintage Ferguson tractors and implements in the world. The model was the first ever machine to be fitted with converging three-point linkage and a hydraulic lift incorporating automatic draft control- a system now at the heart of every modern tractor.
It is thought to have inspired the four-wheeled drive developments carried out by Harry Ferguson Research Limited. Cheffins auctioneer Oliver Godfrey said: He is also famous for becoming the first Irishman to build and fly his own aeroplane and for developing the first four-wheel drive Formula One car.

Other common farm equipment manufacturers like Minneapolis-Moline, Massey-Ferguson, and Case also used paint color to brand their products. Case tractors are commonly found in the gray color.
