Ferguson TE20 - 1954

FERGUSON TEA20 – c. 1954

English Flag

The Ferguson TEA20 was one of the most versatile small tractors ever built for use in agriculture and industry. The tractor could be fitted with a wide range of attachments such as a front-end loader and a grader blade. It had a Power-Take-Off (PTO) system and a right-angle pulley drive that could be attached to the PTO for belt work.

The 2-furrow disc plough attached to the tractor was operated through a 3-point linkage designed by Harry Ferguson. The 3-point linkage system, which forced both the front and the back wheels of the towing tractor onto the ground in a scientific and balanced manner, gave more traction to the rear wheels and overcame the tendency of the plough to lift the front wheels of a tractor when in heavy going.

WA Distributors (1956): British Tractor and Machinery Co, 121 Hay Street, Subiaco.  

Technical Specifications: 4-cylinder, 4-stroke petrol engine (Standard Vanguard motor-car engine). Bore 3.19” and stroke 3.75”. Gears: 4 forward and 1 reverse.   Output at belt was 21.6hp and 15hp at the drawbar at 2000rpm. Weight 2,500lbs.

History: This tractor was purchased from Margaret Patterson, farmer, of Pinjarra. It had also been on loan to the Pinjarra Race Club for grading the track.
