'New' Major - diesel
On offer is the ‘other’ Classic British tractor of the 1950s:
The Fordson ‘New’ Major – Diesel !
This is a 1952 model with 40 HP 3.2 L four cylinder diesel engine,
Dual range, 3 speed + reverse transmission (i.e. 6 forward and 2 reverse gears)
strong (Cat 2) hydraulic three point linkage
(with sleeves for Cat 1 implements),
low mount drawbar,
1 3/8” PTO shaft,
Side PTO pulley.
I was in the process of restoring this tractor for hobby farm use
but I have too many projects on the go and
the Minister for War & Finance has declared that something has to go!
Engine starts reliably and runs well.
Gearbox has a few growls but all gears engage easily and work.
Hydraulics are strong but will drop slowly when engine is off.
Steering is light and direct.
The paintwork is poor (but nothing is hidden by new paint)
The body work a little rough in places, but complete.
Fitted with a shade canopy (note: not a certified ROPS).
Rear tyres are worn but will last for years of hobby farm use.
Front tyres worn but replacements included (see below).
Please see photos as well as this description.
Work done on this machine since purchase in 2012:
New parts included with tractor:
(Most are quality Sparex and Agriline parts from the UK)
All this for less than some are asking for very ordinary “Grey Fergies”.
This 40 HP machine will easily handle a 5’ slasher, 6’ grader blade, Cat 2 ripper/pipe layer etc.
Plenty of work left in this old girl!
