I’ve had 2 days of fun with Fergusons. On Saturday 31st August 2013 I was invited by Seb Littlewood, Head of Rural Life, to drive a TED-20 belonging to Beamish Museum. The event, Agricultural power from the past aimed to have many agricultural demonstrations going on around the site over the four days. My small part was driving a Ferguson and 3ton trailer with various loads of cereals to stores and threshers etc. It was a fab day and a lot was achieved.

On Saturday 31st August -Sunday 1st September Brian Pickering, Ferguson Club Vice Chairman, organised a working weekend just outside Boroughbridge. I was able to take my TEF-20 and a 10″ 2 furrow General Purpose plough along. As it wasn’t a competition I was free to experiment with lots of different settings ahead of the ploughing events coming up in the next couple of months. A big thanks to Brian for organising This event, looking forward to seeing you at Newark

* Check out the Barn

Posted on December 20th, 2012 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


Last weekend the Family was in Durham at a 1st Birthday party. Why am I telling you this? We had to make a stop at Beamish Museum¬†and as we where waiting in the staff car park I spotted a new barn being built. The barn wasn’t that interesting apart from thinking what Ferguson things you could put in it when it is finished. No, the contents were far more important. I know they have one ferguson tractor (the one behind) as I fitted a MIL loader to it. It looks as though there is a second and from the front and back wheels an early model. The pictures below were as close as I got (For now) a closer inspection and report when we are up there at some point over christmas. Seb would you like to comment, Beamish Transport Online, not really your thing but would you like to comment?

* Falling behind – Updates

Posted on June 11th, 2012 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


I’ve been falling behind of late with my website and I’ve got loads to update.

  • It was great to spend the evening at Beamish and watch them plant turnips.

Shame it wasn’t a Ferguson tractor they were using, they have one! It was in the workshop having the hydraulics looked at. The mechanism jammed on the seed drill and it needed dismantling and cleaning out.

  • Single furrow plough purchase

 

  • Springtine cultivator restoration
Well I’ve got the undercoat on most of the parts. I’m brush painting as I have a tin of paint.
