* A-TE-61 Installed

Posted on July 18th, 2014 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

A couple of nights ago once all my other jobs where completed I had time to fit the newly arrived hinged seat to my tractor. I was in two minds when the seat arrived, should I paint it or not? After oiling the hinge, washing the seat completely and giving it a rub over with a scotch bright cloth I decided it didn’t look to bad and I was going to put a cover over the seat anyway. So I left it as it arrived.

Overall I’m really pleased with it. I do still have some questions though. Why is the seat a different design to the original Ferguson seat was it a modification to the original or was it supplied as a completely new item. I suspect it was a new item to replace the original seat and spring, why do I think that? I can’t find any weld where the original spring would have been modified with the extra shape. There are additional holes in the part of the spring that bolts to the tractor. originally it was at the seat end the adjustment for seat position was. The weld on the seat looks to neat for an on farm job! see what you think from the comparison picture below.

* A-TE-61 Complete

Posted on July 4th, 2014 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


So I’ve had for a while a very good reproduction set of footplates that would have been fitted to a TE-20.

My set came from Phil at  There are some great pictures here of the footplates once they where painted and fitted.

Well now I’ve added the hinged seat to my collection to go with the footplates.  I went to visit a guy recently who had a hinged seat fitted to his TEF-20 and it looked great. The TE-20 seat was very different to the 35 hinged bucket seat. originally a TE-20 seat had the hinged part welded to it and the spring underneath was…… I don’t know that yet. Was it a new spring or a welded section added or possible a section bolted on. I’ll find out when my seat arrives. A hinged seat came up on eBay and I was the highest bidder. I can’t wait to fit it. You can read below what Ferguson thought the hinged seat would offer the tractor driver.

Here are some pics of the seat to come.
