* Happy Birthday

Posted on February 19th, 2012 by ploughmyfield. Filed under News.

Happy birthday to me. To celebrate I’ve bought myself a present, an original Ferguson part to fit to my tractor. It cost me more money in postage than it did to buy. It’s part number 4297 the Shaft from the levelling box to control the height of the right hand lower link arm. Essential when ploughing. (I don’t think my modern replacement currently fitted is the correct length!)

Engineer 1260

I’ve been reading a proper website this week on the subject of Ferguson Tractors. It’s Jeff or 1260Engineer.

Jeff’s Blog

I’ve known Jeff for a few years from his days at Holland Brand where he was one of the engineers. Jeff’s background is Airplane’s and he brings a refreshing preciseness to all he does, reading his blog posts will confirm this. I last referenced Jeff’s website in an article in 2009

I get really inspired and depressed at the same time when I read all the wonderful things Jeff is doing and the time it must have taken, knowing I am lucky if I can grab a couple of hours a week in the garage. It’s taken me a good few weeks to fit two stabiliser brackets. The jobs seem to be growing.

Well done Jeff Keep up the great work, another TE saved from distraction. 687,00 hits in a year! are you sure  that’s more than 1882 hits a day!

John I. Fearn (Agricultural) LTD

I am making progress with the history of a second Ferguson dealer although my search has been limited to the internet and a couple of phone calls.
see the section on the Right under Dealers for all the information I have discovered to date.

720/721 Manual Confusion.

I have to say Massey Ferguson & Massey harris implement numbering is so confusing. I was looking for an implement manual 720/721 cultivator and came across a 720/721 Low volume sprayer, 720 mounted spinner broadcaster. 720 snow thrower, 720 disc harrow. Why did they all have the same number? can anyone please give reason behind the numbering? I can’t. Oh well I now have a 720/721 Massey Ferguson low volume sprayer manual, Great!!
