Antique Ferguson Tractor: Ferguson TO-20

[Ferguson TO-20 Parts]     [Return to the Shed]

This picture is a 1948 model. The first TO-20 rolled off the production line in 1948 with Serial Number 1. It was an immediate success - they were reliable and priced competitively with Ford's new 8N. Due to their extreme reliability, many of the TE-20s were used in Antarctica by the British exploration program. Three of them (especially equipped) carried the famous Sir Edmund Hillary expedition on a 1,200 mile trip to the South Pole.

  • To Sue, You can look on the lft side of the motor just aboe the oil pan and it will have a cast number of Z120 for a TO20 and No. Z129 for TO30. If the oil filter is inside the oilpan it a TO20. There should be a tag next to the steering post with a TO ser. no. If tou find all of these check w/www.montesequipment.com/ as they handle the continnal motors for Ferguson. Good luck. Bob

  • Help please! We keep getting different opinons on what our tractor is. Some say it is a T0-30, some say it is a T0-20. How do we tell the difference? It has an internal oil filter if that helps and there are numbers all over the darn thing. Which ones tell the year and model? It is 6 volt and cranks over slow and has very weak spark. Are the valves adjustable on it and does anyone know what they should be set at? Going to put a coil and new battery in it this weekend. Links would be great! Thx

  • About 1950 we had a Ferguson model 20-85 and it had a loader LUO with manure forks it had arms that lvered on brackets where fenders mount. It had a bracket that fit on rear 3 point hitch arms with a pintle hook. The manure spreader was Ferguson too and had a pintle hook hole. The loader was quite light but very, very efficient. could unhook by lowering hydraulics and just drive ahead , load in a couple of minutes and backup to spreaderand hook up again without leaving the seat. You could take the loader off in minutes just leaving the main brackets.

I ordered that book for it but the book says that this 1950 TO-20 is suspose to have a 6 volt system with a generator. Mine has a alternator and is 12 volts. Did Ferguson built a 12 volt system?(Ferguson, not Massey ferguson) Could this tractor have been changed over to a 12 volt system are is my tractor not a 1950, TO-20. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Thanks for creating a great tractor Harry. Our farm has a 51 TO-20. We use it for mowing, plowing, pulling the hay wagon, hauling logs out of the woods and general mayhem. If and when it finally dies I'll be sad but I'll definately try to find another one just like it.

It was partially restored but the name plates for the side of the hood are missing. I checked with the local Massey dealer and they have a Part number but it is no longer available. Any info on where to order restoration parts would be greatly apprecated Thanks, Rob S.E. Ky.

  • My father purchased a TO-30 in 1951, and a used 1950 TO-20 the same year. Both are still running great and I use them mostly for my gardening. They both have been rebuilt, but the hyd. are original and still work amazingly well. I also have two six foot Ferguson disc harrows, two 2 bottom turn plows by Ferguson, and though in bad condition in the woods, a Ferguson single row ear-type corn picker. Would be glad to hear from any other Ferguson owners worldwide. These pieces of equip. have a great functional and sentimental value to me as I grew up on the small famile farm using them. Thanks, Scott Jernigan...Windsor, N.C., USA.

Did not know much about it except it ran and it was a Ferguson. To my suprise after searching the web pages, I'm a proud owner of a 1950, TO 20 Ferguson s/n-17446. I would like to know if anyone has had any dealings with one that has been changed over to LP gas? I have consider changing it back to it's original state but was advised not too. Does anyone know if changing it back to gas will hurt my fregie? And like many others does anyone know were I can find a manual?

Anyway, with the help of discussions here, I think I can probably figure it out. (How come so many folks ask about models and serial numbers when the information is right here?)

  • My dad bought a To-20 in 1950 and I have it now. It still runs great and even though it was used hard through the years, it has only been overhauled once in 1964. In response to Ark's questions, I converted mine to 12v about 10 years ago. I used a 12v Ford car generator, but if you use an alternator, use a small one off a 4 cyl. as a big one will drag the tractor's engine down. I kept the 6v starter and the and the fast spinning starts the tractor so fast that it hasn't burnt out in all these years. I will eventually have to have it rewired to 12v. As far as your coil is concerned, it's ok. You'll have to pick up a ballast resistor at your local parts store. As it is a generic type item, it costs less than $10 usually.

  • I am the proud owner of a TO-30 Harry Ferguson. The hydraulics on the old girl could not lift the implements and when they did lift it would bleed off very quickly. A friend and I tore the hydraulics out and had everything repaired. However, the machinist who repaired all the parts said that there is a schematic of the "proper putting back together sequence" or else things will break again. I have looked through my service manual and found no such schematic. Can anyone help?

The TO-20 is very similar to the ford 9N at the 2n, The TO-20 however is more powerful than the ford. This tractor has the overhead valve Z-120 continental engine which has been a very reliable engine over the years.
