Ferguson TE-20 Tractor 1946 onwards (TE-20, TO-20, TO-30, TO-35, FF-30) Enthusiasts' Manual (Book) AUD $39.95

An insight into the history, development, production and uses of the world's most iconic tractor. In 1917, Harry Ferguson developed a method of attaching a wheel-less plough to a tractor in such a way as to reduce the dangers of the machine turning over. By 1925 the plough was in production .4-1 the USA, and Ferguson set about developing a tractor to incorporate the hydraulic linkage which effectively integrated the tractor and the implement. After failed ventures to produce the tractor with David Brown and Ford in the USA, in 1946 Ferguson and The Standard Motor Company established production of what was now known as the Ferguson TE-20 in Britain. Over the next ten years, more than 793,000 examples of this iconic machine were produced in Britain, France and the USA. With its revolutionary three-point hydraulic linkage, Ferguson had always seen his tractor as part of a complete farming system and during the TE-20's life, more than 100 Ferguson implements were designed specifically to couple to the tractor. This Haynes Manual describes the development of Ferguson's TE-20 and The Ferguson System, providing a fascinating insight into how this apparently humble machine helped to mechanise and revolutionise farming across the world. Aided by numerous archive images and photographs of restored examples today, the fascinating text describes: •The Ferguson Story — the design, evolution and development of the TE-20 tractor •The Ferguson System — a comprehensive listing of the numerous official implements designed to integrate with the TE-20 •Anatomy of the TE-20 — engines, transmission, steering, axles, hydraulics, implement linkage, electrics, bodywork •The farmer's view — mechanisation of farming, the Ferguson at work, farmers' recollections of the TE-20 •The owner's view — finding, restoring and operating the 'little grey Fergie' today Models covered 1946 onwards TE-20, TO-20, TO-30, TO-35, FF-30.
