Me on my second ‘Greyfergie’

I had better introduce myself and my “better half”. My name is Don and my long suffering partner in crime is Phyllis, we have been together now for 33 years, and between us we have 14 children, 29 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren.

When I acquired my Greyfergie Phyllis told me in no uncertain terms that she was not too impressed with a heap of rusting metal in the garden. However as time went by and it started to look a bit more like what it was first supposed to be she became accustomed to it and has even driven it.
I acquired my Ferguson TE20, on 9th June 1994. It carries the serial number 121333, was originally built in 1950, and was a petrol model. The engine was changed in 1953 for a Perkins P3 Diesel, also it was changed from 6 to 12 volt. This tractor was in a terrible condition and needed a lot of work done to restore it to its former glory. To see this in more detail go to the restoration page.

Sadly this and my other tractors have now gone as I am unable to look after them or use them due to ill health however the following pages are dedicated to my TE20 as it was once a major hobby and whenever possible after restoring it to its former glory it was used as first intended.

Please have a look round, enjoy the photos and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me
