Rather unimpressive at first sight, this tractor was sold more than half a million times – WIKING fashioned their Ferguson TE based on the original, legendary British classic! After all, little Fergie packed a might punch at the time. No wonder that it is deemed a major accomplishment in the history of British tractor design to this day and has become a legend of agriculture outside of Britain as well. Its introduction revolutionised agricultural engineering as it was the first to feature the seminal three-point hitch invented by Ferguson. Its powerlift hydraulics allowed it to lighten the workload in a whole new range of tasks. Today, a remarkable 85% of all tractors produced worldwide are based on Harry Ferguson’s one-of-a-kind idea. Thanks to the power of 23 / 25 horses delivered by petrol or diesel engines, Fergie became the best-selling tractor of all time between 1946 and 1956. This market success encouraged Harry Ferguson to merge with Massey Harris as early as 1953 – giving birth to the powerhouse tractor maker Massey Ferguson. In Germany, little Fergie, rolling off the line 517.649 times, was a rather rare sight, as the tractor market was crowded by a host of strong competitors ranging from Deutz and Fahr to Normag and Hanomag & Co. This fact alone makes “Little Grey Fergie” a classic that is seldom seen, but always electrifying – mesmerising enthusiasts at tractor conventions all over Germany.
