It is perhaps not surprising that agricultural equipment formed such an important part of the history of the Ford Motor Company. Henry Ford grew up on a farm and married his wife, Clara, another farmer, at her family farm. The original Model T Ford car had a PTO that was used extensively by farmers for various tasks.

This was one of the first machines that brought power on to the farm. Ford started making Fordson tractors as far back as 1907 at their factory in Dearborn, Michigan. They are credited with inventing the first mass-produced petrol-powered tractor, which they called the automobile plough.

1984 Ford TW25 tractorTractor production continued in Cork in Ireland through the 1920s and 1930s and at Dagenham in England from 1933 to 1964. Ford bought Sperry-New Holland in 1986 and purchased the Versatile tractor company in 1988.

Ford bought by Fiat

Ford’s tractor business was bought by Fiat in 1993 and the Italian company dropped the Ford name. The company is now known as New Holland. Ford tractors were big business in the 1980s and the company was responsible for many innovations, including the use of pneumatic rubber tyres, power hydraulics and the now standard three-point hitch.

Ford tractors in the 70's

In 1965, Ford dropped the Fordson name and the tractors were now badged simply as Ford. Cabs became a factory-fit option and horsepower began to climb, reaching 120hp with the 1972 8600. The Ford 600 came along in 1975 and went on to become a bestseller across the world. The TW Series appeared in 1979 and continued until 1989 and horsepower increased again to a maximum of 105hp.

The 1987 acquisition of Versatile, meanwhile added big four-wheel-drive tractors to the range, with the mighty Ford 946 now boasting 325hp. 1987 also saw the acquisition of New Holland and the company became known as Ford New Holland. From 1996, the tractors were badged only as New Holland.

Firsts for Ford in the 80's

Ford tractors were at the top of their game in the 1980s, despite all the corporate rebranding. The 10 series introduced the sychromesh gearbox to the tractor industry and then became the Force II Series in 1985. Despite this upgrade, the 10 remained popular and still works hard on many farms today. It then morphed into the Generation III tractors in 1989. These tractors brought electronics into the cab in a major way for the first time.

From the first mass-produced Model F tractor through to the Fordson N’s work keeping farms productive while many men went off to fight the Second World War, Ford’s light blue tractors have been at the heart of tractor history. Innovations continued to arrive, such as the addition of Ferguson system hydraulics in farming tractors and then the world-beating 1000 series.

Although the Ford badge has long since departed the agricultural market, its DNA remains in the New Holland range. For many farmers, Ford represented a favoured brand. They were simple, effective and always improving to adopt the latest technologies. It is testament to the quality of these machines that second-hand Ford tractors remain available for sale today. In fact, certain models are becoming collectible and prices are actually beginning to rise. You never know — a used Ford tractor could prove to be a sound investment in more ways than one.
