The Great North Run Vs Nick

The Great North Run is definitely one the counties most notorious half marathons.

Our Sales Director Nick, is taking on the run to raise support for the charity, Lindsey Lodge Hospice,  https://www.lindseylodgehospice.org.uk.

TractAir and all our staff will be giving our support to Nick in his mammoth task to run the 13.2 miles.  We wish him all the luck with this achievement.  We plan to cheer him on and raise as much to help with supporting not only our chosen charity but the charities which the Great North Run provides support to every year.

Give it up (and a minute of your time to help https://www.justgiving.com/Nick-Constantine/ ) for our keenest runner, Nick.

About the Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

Our Daycare Unit provides specialised nursing and medical care for up to 14 patients daily, with around 70 patients on our register at any one time.

Our purpose-built ten-bedded In-Patient unit, was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in July 2002. A variety of accommodation is provided to suit patients’ needs and all our rooms have en-suite facilities. Some patients visit the In-Patient Unit for short periods to enable us to monitor and control their symptoms. Some patients will be admitted for care at the end of their lives when it is not possible to care for them at home.

The Lymphoedema Clinic began in 2004 and treatments are carried out by specialist nurses and therapists over 3 days each week.

Support for the unit is a continuous battle so many thanks to Nick for supporting our cause.  We wish him all the luck on crossing the finish line.

Serious Parking Problem.

Something fun  for today.

 

I can not imagine how you would even get the trailer up there, unless it was being towed by a helicopter.

TractAir Team Wins First Prize

What an Evening, Team TractAir took an early knock when our previous victor Alex Constantine was hit with a black flag. He never really recovered and our number 2 Richard Daddy was left to take the reins. Our opposition took us by supprise on a number off occasions with a really good precision driving and aggressive tactics. We pulled back despite a number of aggressive attempts to take the lead. It was Richard Daddys Team who’s relentless pursuit of victory, paid off with a 1st place trophy. Despite the intense heat of the day (28 degrees) it was a thoroughly enjoyable event.

After a few celebratory drinks in the winners circle its back to normal tomorrow.

We would like to thank our organisers, who kindly hosted and paid for the event.

TractAir’s Baby – Air Brakes for Agriculure

[easyrotator]erc_63_1374063862[/easyrotator]

The model name came form Tractor, England 20 horsepower (not the true power delivered but from a formula based on engine size, see tax horspower).

The TE range of Ferguson tractors were introduced in England in 1946 following 30 years of continuous development of “The Ferguson System” from 1916. The first work wsa to design a plough and linkage to integrate the tractor with its work in a mannor that was an egineering whole. The automatic control system is now employed ny almost all tractor manufacturers worldwide. A British patent was applied for by Harry Ferguson in 1925 and granted the following year.

By the early 1930s the linkage design was finalised and is now adopted as international standard category 1. Just one prototype Ferguson System tractor, known as teh Gerguson Black, was built to further technical devellopment and for demonstartinf to potential manufacturers. During 1936 the first production Ferguson tractors were built in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, by the David Brown Company. This tractor, the Ferguson Model ‘A’, incormporated Harry Fergusons’s ‘suction side’ hydraulic control system, the key to solving sensitive automatic control of three point mounted impements and patented on 5th February 1936 (patent no 470069). The combination of Ferguson’s converging three point hitch, patned on 3rd July 1928 (patent no 320084) with his ‘suction side control’ valve is the key to the success of all subsequent Ferguson and later Massey Ferguson ‘Ferguson System ‘tractors, the most important of which ar eht e TE and TO 20 models. (It was the production of the Model ‘A’ that led in 1939 to the David Brown line of tractors). [1]

In order to get volume production with lower costs, following a demonstration of his ctractor before Henry Ford Senior in October 1939, Ferguson made a gentlemenns agreement with Ford to produce the Ferguson tractor in Detroit starting in mid 1939. About 300,000 of these tractors, know as ‘Ford Fergusons’, were produced up to 30th June 1947.

During the War years the Ferguson design team developed many improvements to both tractor and implements and started to make arrangements to manufacture in the United Kingdom. The agreement with Ford in 1938 was to include production at the Ford plant at Dagenham, Esses, but the UK Ford company would not do it. By 1945 Ferguson had made a manufacturing agreement with the Standard Motor Company of Coventry to produce a Ferguson tractor incorporating all their latest improvements and to be known as the TE20, i.e. ‘Tractor England’. As well as allowing Ferguson to get his tractor into full production, the deal was of great benefit to Standard as the tractor would be built in its huge ‘shadow factory’ which had been an aero engine plant during WWII but was now staning empty and was of no use to what was a reatively small car company. Standard developed a new wet -liner engine for the tractor, whcih would in turn be used in Standards road cars, such as the Vanguard.

Production started in the late summer of 1946, nearly a year before the last Ford Ferguson came off the line in Detroit in June 1947. The break with Ford left Harry Ferguson and his US company with impements to sell but no tractors. To make up the gap until the new Ferguson factory in Detroit started in October 1948, over 25,000 Coventry-built TE20s were shipped to th USA and Canada. The TO (Tractor Overseas) 20 was virually the same as the TE20.

Coventry production up to 1956 was 517,651 units, with about 66% being exported, mainly to Continental Europe and the British Empire but to many other countries as well. To the above figure must be added TO production at Ferguson Park, Detroit. Including all ‘Ferguson System’ tractors from May 1936 to July 1956 brings the figure to approximately 1 million.

TE20 Front View

Harry Ferguson merged his worldwide companies with Massey Harris of Toronto in July 1953, three years before TE and TO20 production ended, hence the change of hame on the serial plate to ‘Massey-Harris-Ferguson’. The Ferguson 35 replaced the old line in the US in 1955 and the TE20 in the UK in 1956, production in the UK starting in September of that year following re-tooling of the factory.

Variants.[1]

The first TE20s ran on petrol. There were later versions that ran on Tractor Vapourising Oil (TVO), simetimes called ‘petrol/paraffin’, which in Australia was known as ‘power kerosene’. Some were converted in the UK to use a 3-cylender Perkins diesel engine.

TE stood for Tractor England.
TO stood for Tractor Overseas.
