The whole running thing I cannot help you with.

My granny has one that hasn't been started in years. Parked because it kept developing water in the hydraulic system.

What size tractor. If you are looking for something in the 20hp and up range, like most older (ie 50's, 60's) orchard tractors you prolly won't find a decent one below 2500.

Midwest Auto Rv is your best friend, it is free....Also check out their website Autorv.com

4sd's Bro here.


~Fort Madison, Ia (mapquest it)
~It's a Ferguson, alot like a Ford 9N, but with overhead valves
~3 point? check alont witha homemade-ish front loader
~Getting it running and transported would probably be the biggest part, as for monetary, you would have to talk to our granny, she owns it, but it hasn't moved in a few years.

my grandparents used to use it to cultivate a pretty good sized garden.

We have a small disc that goes with it, it has a tow bar attatched to the 3-pt. hitch right now, there is also a blade for the 3-pt that they used to use when grating their driveway.

we will call granny this weekend and get a price.

Just curious what type of Fergy, I have a TO-30. They are great tractors. My dad rebuilt the motor in ours back in the early 80's. Only prob we ever had is we never fixed the chargin system, so we have to plug it in sometimes.

Easy to still get parts for if ya serach teh web or common things can be bought at most local tractor places.

Oh the model, on ours at least, has the a plate riveted by the gauges with the model # on it.

It is one of those Fergy's that looks like the old Ford "N" series of the '40's and 50s.

I have seen tons of the Ford N's but this Ferg is the only one like it I have seen.

My grandpa gave me the skinny on it a few years before he passed on.

Henry Ford and this Ferguson guy had the same design patent on these tractors and sold them under the "Fordson" brand.

Evidently Ford and Ferguson had a falling out and split business with each other and each was legally allowed to manufacture and sell these tractors.

Ford kept making them with the flathead I-4 and Ferguson did some other stuff with his, hence why this one is OHV.

That is all I really know.

I will call tonight, and ask her if she would like to sell (Probably)

It will probably need a bit of work, it has been sitting a few years.
