Information on Ford Tractor
Tractors are one of the essential farm machineries which are used in plowing lands or preparing them for cultivation. Apart from agriculture, Tractor
is also used for clearing debris, mowing, road building and helping in loading, traction, etc.
Henry Ford of the Ford Motor
first manufactured tractor in the year 1907. His primary objective was to build a cheaper tractor which can be used as a key vehicle for farm chores. After many years of experiments and under his tutelage, the Ford Tractor Company
started producing tractors in large scale globally and for multipurpose uses.
At present, Ford tractor
has a huge American fan following and a global customer base as well. The tractor
line-ups offer extensive ranges of restored models including some of the popular models like Ford 8N/2N/9N, Ford NAA, 600, 700, & 800,
Ford Dexta, Ford Super MD, Ford Jubilee, Ford Work master, etc.
The Ford N series tractors were the first ever all-purpose tractors produced between the time-period 1939-47. The first Tractor Model
of the N-series category was the Ford 2N with some utility features like an enlarged cooling fan with shroud, a pressurized radiator and eventually sealed-beam headlights. The Ford
2N eventually evolved into the Ford 8N, which officially started its production in 1947 and was produced through 1952. It was available with four cylinders, L-head engine, powered by 23.87 HP and the maximum torque rating was 84 foot-pounds at 1500 rpm.
Ford Tractor also had three speeds forward, one reverse transmission and a sliding gear. The design of the 1953 "Golden Jubilee" Tractor Model
Ford tractor is the direct result of the Ferguson lawsuit. The Golden Jubilee features the Ford-designed "Solid System" hydraulics, the 134 cubic inch overhead valve "Red Tiger" engine, and a completely new style that reflects the aerodynamic design favored in the early fifties. One of the more obvious changes from previous N-series Ford Tractor
is in the design of the grille and emblem. The grille retains the vertical elements of the 8N; the wider center bar is eliminated. The new front emblem on the Golden Jubilee, designed by Edward Pinardi, features a round, "headlight" design that became the hallmark of Ford tractors until the early 1960's.
All the N-series tractors are now displayed and sold under the “vintage” category. Many auto suppliers and service providers are available to replace or sell or rebuild Tractor
parts of these models and would readily help you to fix the problems with their collection of antique tractor parts and manuals. They have kept these classic ford tractors alive and running.
