Led by the Mayor of Coventry, the ‘70 tractors for 70 years’ procession was organised by Coventry Transport Museum event and attracted tractor enthusiasts from far and wide.

The first TE20 tractor rolled off the assembly line at its former Banner Lane manufacturing plant in Coventry in the UK in July 1946.

The tractor was the invention of engineer Harry Ferguson, a founder of the Massey Ferguson, which is one of the biggest names in farm machinery.

The tractor was unique in its three-point linkage implement attachment system, controlled by the tractor’s hydraulics.

Designated the ‘Ferguson System,’ this effectively turned the tractor and implement into a single working unit, replacing previous methods of implement operation.
