  • Spring Tine Cultivator.....parts needed....
  • It is an SKO-20, Dearborn 13-2. I broke an end off of one and could not locate the piece, I will be needing the shovel BO-150-A, a sweep adapter 9544 and a spacer SKO9552. Does anyone know if these parts are still available from a dealer or will I have to search on line for used parts? Dave

  • Ferguson/Early Massey Ferguson Implement Parts
    The most valuable tool you can have when restoring a Ferguson implement is the parts book. Trying to buy parts for Ferguson implements from an AGCO dealer can be particularly difficult when the dealer tells you he has no parts book for the implement or parts are no longer available. The truth is, many parts for Ferguson implements are still available, if you have the correct part numbers. Many people working the parts counter today are not aware that many Ferguson implements became Massey Ferguson implements with new number designations replacing the old Ferguson designations.
    Knowing the later Massey Ferguson number for a Ferguson implement will lead you to the Massey Ferguson parts book that contains the parts for your Ferguson implement.
    Let's say you needed parts for a Ferguson S-KO-20 spring tine cultivator. Your AGCO parts man might tell you parts are no longer available. If however, you told him you needed parts for a Massey Ferguson 220 spring tine cultivator, he would pull up the parts book on his computer and you would see an exploded view of an implement that is exactly the same as the S-KO-20 cultivator. Unfortunately, most of the people working the parts counter today have no knowledge regarding Ferguson implements. Sadly, this problem began shortly after the Massey Harris-Ferguson merger when Ferguson parts books were replaced by new Massey Ferguson parts books. I recall going to a Massey Ferguson dealer when I was a boy to get parts for our Ferguson 9-BO-20 tiller and being told by the parts man that parts for that implement were not available. When I pointed out that our Ferguson tiller was exactly the same as a Massey Ferguson 37 tiller sitting in front of the dealership, he found the parts we needed were not only still available but in his parts bin.
    While many parts for Ferguson and Massey Ferguson implements may no longer be in production, having the correct part number allows the parts person to search data bases of obsolete parts companies as well as the inventories of other dealers.
    Here is the article in part.

  • Ferguson Furrows magazine dated August 2010 has a crossover list by Bob Sybrandy. The Ferguson S-KO-20 cultivator is the same as a Massey Ferguson MF 220 Spring Tine Cultivator. You might find parts at a dealer. Good luck. Roy
    Found this also in a archive on another board,

  • I also have the SKO-20. I believe, from what I've read that the MF 220 is the same cultivator. I believe that Robert Sandusky, the Ferguson guy Ferguson furrows magazine, not sure of spelling on that last name wrote an article about this same exact question. A MF dealer should be able to get the parts with a different model to look up. My dealer has a older guy at the parts counter to help out. Some dealers with new kids have no clue and just say no longer have parts for that item.
    I have notes in my books and could look later on this and maybe link the article. I'm about to run errands now with the wife.
    Good luck.

  • Thanks for the link. I cannot get the contact info for the seller for some reason. It appears as if he has everything for the cultivator except what I am looking for but I would like to contact him and ask. I even logged in to CL and attempted to search the ad number. No luck. DED

  • Well, first the good news, if it is a Model SKO-20, it is a FERGUSON-SHERMAN, if it is a 13-2, it is a Dearborn, but nevertheless, parts are interchangeable. The bad news is these implements are no longer serviced, meaning they no longer make parts for them. You can try Scott Deppen in Halifax, PA, formerly Sweigard Bros, and he advertises parts on the ADS forum or look hom up in the LINKS. He may have some used parts for you. Next alternative is to find a used implement and swap out parts with it. Lastly, you can get new parts for cultivators AG Supply, et al but you will have to plan on doing some grinding and custom fitting to get them to work.

  • Simple, place a call to a dealer and find out for sure. Then start looking for used ones or a complete different one and keep yours for parts.
