1924 Fordson F

The Fordson F was the first tractor released by the company. It was produced from 1917 until 1927, and is often looked at as the most influential tractor of all time. Tractors of competitors were becoming very complex, and were fairly expensive. Fordson created the model F with the simple farmers in mind. They kept things very simple, and most importantly, inexpensive. This allowed small farmers who may have been a bit skeptical to buy a tractor for the first time.

The majority of the Fordson Fs were manufactured in Dearborn, MI, but about 7,600 were manufactured at a factory in Cork, Ireland. For the first three years of production, the Model F had a Hercules engine. This engine had four cylinders, natural aspiration, and was run on distillate fuel. The engine was liquid cooled, and put out about 20horsepower. In 1920, Fordson changed the engines to a nearly identical Ford engine.

It had the same general styling as other Massey-Harris’, but the width between the front two wheels could be adjusted. The tractor was five feet tall and had a wheel base of sixty-six inches.
