* A-TE-109A, Wheel Girdles 11″ with Lugs

Posted on August 15th, 2014 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


Apart from exhibiting my tractor at a show, something I have never done, I have no Idea when these Ferguson Wheel Girdles will ever come in useful. I wonder what they are like in the snow?

I bought them from the great Auction site as they where going for a song. I did have to collect them from Norfolk some 4 hours drive away from Sheffield. So I coupled the collection with a visit to some friends who lived locally. More than anything its a tick on the list of another Ferguson accessory to add to the list. One slight problem these 11″ girdles are meant for 11×28″ types as fitted to MF35’s. I have the smaller 10×28″ tyres fitted to my TEF-20. Anyone have a 10″ set in as good a condition they would like to swap?

strangely included with the girdles where these two pieces of metal that the guy said came with them when he bought them. I wondered what they are for, Anyone know?

I thought at first they may be the tool to tighten up the girdles once in position on the tractor but the two bars don’t fit together.

    You are correct regarding the odd bars you have they are designed to be used to pull the girdle together around the wheel as they are quite snug

  2. Keith McGrath Says:

    Your right Tim,they were used to tighten the girtles around the wheel after reversing on top of them and liftung them up around the wheel,a nut and bold is then put through the bar with all the holes to secure them,Harold from “Ferguson on The Farm” is filmed putting them on his Ferguson for better traction when he was leveling earth with the Ferguson blade on the front of the tractor as far as I can remember
