Ferguson Production Changes


What year is that Fergy?

One of the most asked questions of Fergy Club members is "How do I tell what year my Fergy is?"

There were 517 651 little grey tractors assembled, with production finishing in 1956. Petrol, diesel, Kerosene and Lamp oil models were made for different markets. (Check the link below, left for details). Their serial numbers, on a metal plaque behind the steering wheel, will let you know when your particular tractor was manufactured.  In addition, there are numbers cast into the transmission housing that will give you year and month, if you know what to look for.

Here is a list of serial numbers and year of production.

         1948: 20895
         1949: 77773
         1950: 116462
