  • Ford 9N/2N Ferguson Mower
  • Hi all! My name is Bryce, I frequent the Yesterdays Tractors Forums. I am 16 years old, and I have 16 tractors, Farmalls, JD's, Ferguson TO-30, and one of my favorites, and 1945 Ford 2N.

    I was recently given a mower by a friend. He bought the mower thinking that it would go on his 8N. He DID get it on there, however he said "stuff just wasn't right"?? It has a serial tag on it, and all I can make out is that it is a Ferguson mower, and there is a 6 in the model slot (along with other numbers/letters, they are just un-readable).

    So, here's what I know:

    Belly mount,
    5 foot,
    2 V Belt Driven,
    Came with two different size pullys for the PTO.

    Looks to be all complete, and like said, he says he had it on his 8N, and had it working, but didn't like it because he "knew" it was only supposed to be on a 9N/2N.

    So, I have never heard of a "Ferguson" implement built for a Ford tractor. I thought all the "pre breakup" stuff was Dearborn, and then after the two split, Ferguson had Ferguson implements, and Ford had Ford stuff?

    Will this fit on my 2N? Is it worth restoring and sticking on there? I think if nothing else it would be cool for mowing roadsides and stuff... I'll keep my JD's for knocking down hay! :)

    Thanks, Bryce

  • Ferguson sold all of the implements for the 9N/2N tractors so you are "historically correct" by using the mower on your 2N. After the split between Ford and Ferguson, Ford had to come up with their own implements to sell. Some of the implements that Ford subsequently manufactured had to be modified slightly to avoid copyright and patent infringements from Ferguson. The 2N also used some of Ferguson's engineering ideas such as the 3 point hitch system.

  • Just to add up, after looking around on this site a little more, I found the Implement Manuals section... AWESOME!

    I have determined that it is a Ferguson PEO-21 Mid Mount Mower, for the 9N/2N. Going out to the meadow right now to see if it looks like I have all of the mounting equipment... I think I do! SO excited! :)
