Yes, it is a Massey Ferguson diesel.

Ford 9N, 8N, nor 2N did not come in diesel. Ford grills have vertical slats. Ferguson grills have horizontal slats. The clutch pedal is also a dead give-away.

GrandDad used to have an old Farmall Diesel Tractor.
You had to start it on gasoline, then switch over to diesel.
Anyone remember those ?

That has been me, more winters than I can remember since about 1966. A mile of snow to plow before you hit a county road.

Until recently. Upgraded to a John Deere 4020 (96 HP) with an IH 8 foot hydraulic adjustable blade. The new blade just might weigh as much as the old Ford.

We had a couple John Deere tractors in the family which I am sure started on gasoline. And my Uncles IH TD9 crawler started on gasoline also. It is still in use today with a Holt dozer clearing snow on the feed grounds in the winter and pulling a disc plow in summer.

Yep. GrandDad’s was still running when we sold it 30 something years ago. He also had an old Farmall or Massey Ferguson that you started with a hand crank like on a Model T.

My first thought was Massey. The whole issue was smothered by the sight of the damned hay and the triggering of the memory of my undiluted hatred for baling.

My wife took that picture and it made me look so much like my Grandfather that my brother did an aging process on it on his computer. My Grandfather had an 8N also.

Many people know,..but the reason the early Massie Fergusons and the early Fords look so much alike is because Ford and Harry Ferguson were business partners before Ferguson went out on his own.

Harry Ferguson designed the three point hitch that Ford used,...and is still used today.

RC, would that, by any chance be the Twin Falls sugar factory in the background?

Irrigated ground? 2'nd cutting is surprisingly heavy to those used to dryland farming.

Quoted as the biggest "handshake deal" in the history of business. No lawyers, no paperwork, just two men with the right ideas for the time and a gentleman's agreement.

How did things work out between those two gentlemen when Ferguson went out on his own?

I'm not sure but I think those are Amalgamated's silos. They have some that look very much like that anyway.

Dry land farming? Not here. It's irrigate or watch it blow away.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

Ford started using the Ferguson System in '38. Ferguson introduced the TO20 in '46.

Ferguson probably used the income from Ford to build his own company.

I am not sure. I last saw them in 1982. I know the Paul factory does not have that style silos.

But I understood the area around the TF factory was more developed than that picture shows. Thus my question. And I have not found an image on Google with the proper perspective to confirm.

I do not know. Perhaps they are grain silos.

I was cutting trees and dragging them to the process area with a '52 8N today.

Lucky you. You got the best one they ever built. Previous models had the coil and distributor mounted on the bottom front of the engine (I think on the end of the cam shaft). Adjusting points, or even changing out a distributor cap is an exercise in frustration, leaving one wishing for a pet orangutan trained to wrench on motors.
