Ferguson TE-A-20

~~~~~~~~

The little grey Fergie is sixty years old this year, and to celebrate the occasion we are going to bring you photographs and some of it's history, plus special pages on restoration.

Since the invention of the wheel, nothing revolutionised farming in Llyn, as much as the little fergie tractor. For the first time ever smallholders could afford to buy a tractor, before this, only a handful of the larger farms on Llyn were owners, such as Penarfynydd, that had a Fordson Major.

Harry Ferguson designed this tractor specifically for smallholders and market gardeners. The first model came on the market in 1946, shortly after the war, and soon became a great success.
