Would you agree with that or not Ted, Roy?

1966 MF Supplement

Description: Massey Ferguson Range Supplement Sales brochure covering the MF35 Loader, 17 Trailer, 18 Trailer, 702 Transport box, 701 Transport box, 723 Post hole digger, 721 Multi purpose blade, 727 Subsoiler, and 65 Rotary Cutter with pictures and spec on the machines  dating back to 1966.


I really pushed the boat out on this one. I just hope it’s worth it. I’ve only ever seen a photo and short video for the Ferguson training school. I’m desperate for any information I can get on the place. If I had a time machine it would be the place I would go an attend one of the courses.

* twitter question – banana loader on a 35x

Posted on May 16th, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

Hi All, a couple of days ago I had a question via twitter. OK let me stop right there. Twitter is the way of posting 140 characters of text onto a website. most people use it for “i just got out of the bath” or “now I’m on the train” comments. It’s accessible from computers, mobile devices and smart phones. So I thought I’d have a go at quickly putting down my tractor thoughts or comments as the main articles take a little bit longer and a bit more thought in writing.

The window on the right hand side of the website displays the last of 8 or so of the most recently published posts. I can link to pictures and websites from within them. OK so now you know what twitter is, sorry of you already knew.

I had a question from @arjendj ( a user on twitter) and there question, “do you know a banana loader will fit on a 35x” I was pretty sure it could as I’m sure I’ve seen a picture of one.

FE35 with loader

This picture came from a book The complete book of Tractors and Trucks, published by Hermes House and written by John Carroll & Peter J. Davies.

I know there was a later loader produced with uprated hydraulics etc buy I don’t know much about it. I checking the web and found a site selling a manual for an FE-35 loader it also sells a reprint of the

Ferguson Implement & Accessory Adaption TE20 to FE35 Manual

TE 20 to FE 35 adaption Manual

Which I’m sure will also have the banana loader in and a compatibility rating with the FE-35. When it arrives I will let you know.

I’d love some comments and feedback on this issue so please if you are knowledgable about an FE-35, MF 35 or MF 35x or have had any experience in this matter please get in touch.

Where do you get your manuals from? with the increasing cost of the originals what’s the best place to get Ferguson and Massey Ferguson Manuals.

* Manual Madness

Posted on April 30th, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

I wasn’t going to post anything today (working on some articles) but when I saw this I couldn’t believe it. The world has lost the plot. I didn’t think these where particularly rare examples?

* 9S-KE-20 Manual

Posted on April 23rd, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General, Manuals.

As you may or may not know last year I was given a 9S-KE-20 spring tine cultivator. Having this website sometimes has it’s advantages.

Free Implements

I asked and one of the FoFH members kindly sent me a photocopy of the instruction manual for the implement. I never thought I’d get an original Instruction manual.

Then last week I saw one on Flee Bay but it went for £33 a price that is just to rich for me. Now what normally happens in these situations is everyone that owns one of these items then sees how much they are worth and a flurry of others then appear. My theory was correct and within a week 2 other copies of the Instruction manual were listed, one of which I now own. I plumped for the earlier larger format (8.5″ wide by 10.75″ high) manual from 1948, which incidentally is Ferguson Publication document 16 (FP/16/5/5,000/4/48).

It was originally supplied by

If anyone has any more information about Norfolk Tractors LTD I’d love to know more.

I’ve also collected a parts manual for the same item.

I still have 2 spring broken to be replaced so if you have an parts please let me know.

Happy Easter one and all.

* Plough Manual

Posted on December 11th, 2008 by ploughmyfield. Filed under Manuals.

I know people search this site looking for plough information. 
So here is a gem of a link for you. I have Nev to thank for this. Nev from the FoFH forum. He came across a link to a site which has on it lots of ferguson manuals. It seems to be an American site as most of the manuals are from the ford ferguson days.

There is one manual about the servicing of a ferguson mouldboard plough. It is listed page by page. I’ve stitched the pages together and saved them as a PDF document. It makes Fascinating reading. lots of terminology, problem solving setup. 

I’ve never seen a Ferguson manual like this. does one exist?
