  • Fergusosn T AO 28 Plow
  • I just bought a T AO 28 plow and need some help trying to figure out how to make it work. It appears to be complete and in good condition. I don't know where to hook the little turnbuckle part above the top link, any pictures or a place to obtain manuals would be great.. I plan to use the plow on my old 2N someday, just playing, Thanks in advance, Richard

  • Thanks to all that replied to my question with some very good info. I haven't begun to work on the bracket that goes on the tractor yet (that will happen this winter I hope). If anyone has a detailed drawing or large very clear picture that you are willing to share that would be great. I have found a copy of a copy an old manual that is not very clear that I'm going to try to use if I don't find anything better, it will be a hit and miss operation at best.. If you have such a picture or drawing please send it to me via email or post it here for all to see and use, thanks, Richard

  • OK Richard-
    I contacted my good friend John Farnsworth in the UK who wrote the book on the Ferguson Implements. He has these two pages from the manual to share and I added his comments as well. We hope this helps you out. Seems you may have a rare plow there. I'd also like to suggest you go to the FENA club and join them if not already a member. You can find a quick route to their web site on our LINKS forum. I will email you the scans as well so you can save them and print out.

    Hi Tim-

    These pics should help. Our UK model was TAE 28. There was a later trip bracket mechanism which was more compact and bolted on to the four studs round the PTO it was exactly the same principle but with no attachment to the top link as shown here as it was very rigid on the four bolts. We had two such on our farms at home in my youth we did not have the long version as shown here

    Regards,
    John

  • Richard, I also have one of those Ferguson two way plows but mine is not complete. I do have the parts book and it looks like that turnbuckle is connected to a chain which is attached to a bracket that maybe is attached around the PTO area. I can take a picture of this part if you would like. I would also sell mine if anyone is interested.

  • Richard-
    Wee have numerous scans of original parts and implement manuals here in our MANUALS forum for FREE download. Have you checked there? I'm not fully understanding what you mean by 'turnbuckle part'. The 3-point lift system is just that. You have the two lower lift arm attachment points and third one connects a top link arm to the tractor from the plow. You need the top link arm if you don't have one. All 3-point implements require it to be hitched. They are sold everywhere tractor parts are. Here is a LINK to one that may be of help to you...

  • Re: Fergusosn T AO 28 Plow
  • Tim, thanks for the reply, The plow in the link you provided is not what I have. The plow that I'm trying to figure out appears to be the one that will flip over when you raise the three point at the end of the field, maybe I have the umber wrong it's hard to read. I did find some pictures of the plow on my laptop but they don't say anything about how to hook it up. The turnbuckle thing is on top above the top link hook spot and it appears that it will hold the plow somehow and make it flip. I'll try to get the pictures over to this computer then try to post them.. It looks as if the plow will work if I can mount it on the tractor correctly, thanks, Richard

  • Re: Fergusosn T AO 28 Plow
  • I misunderstood. Is your plow like this:

    If so, caption says it is ID'd as Type 60-E, same as the Model T-AG-28. Used primarily in England when Ferguson went there to build his TE Tractors. I might have the A&O Manual for it, but all my manuals are in storage and I'd have to look next time I'm at the barn. Meantime, go to the FENA group and ask David Lory and Robert Sybrandy.

  • Re: Fergusosn T AO 28 Plow
  • Morning Tim, the plow in your picture is exactly like what I have but when I make the picture bigger to try and see the hookup it gets too fuzzy. I attempted to contact the FENA Group but could not get thru to them something about domain problems.. I think my plow will work if I could just figure out how to put it on the tractor correctly.. If you find your manual maybe you could make a copy of the pages that tell about how to hook it up, there is no hurry, I don't have any land flat enough to plow anyway I'm just playing and trying to help the neighbors once in a while, Again Tim thanks for your help, Richard
