Would anyone know the original color of a Harry Ferguson Horse-Drawn Sulky Plow?

Thanks,

Billy

I didn't know there was such a thing as Harry was trying to help the farmer do away with the horses. I would be interested to see what one looks like if you would post a picture. Thank You Richard

Well, we're not positive it's a Harry Ferg. There is no brand name or emblem on it but there are several casting numbers that all begin with the letters HF. Someone told us that stood for Harry Ferguson. We'll try to post a picture soon.

None of my Ferguson books mention any horse drawn equipment or implements.

He created a plough in 1917; patented the draft control in 1925; and built the Black tractor in 1933. In between, he converted A Model Fords for farm and tractor use.

Check his biography HERE.


P.S. The thought just occurred to me B Kyle, that if you are in North America it would be highly unlikely you would have anything made by Harry Ferguson from the horse drawn era. In the early 20th century, Harry Ferguson was busy with his inventions in Ireland (building and flying aircraft) and in England. I suspect his first US manufacture would be the pre-war(?) Ford-Ferguson tractor and first export from the UK would probably be the TE20, post World War II.

Thank you for the excellent information. I'm not sure what our Sulky Plow may be. The casting numbers all begin with HF and someone told me that stood for Harry Ferguson. We'll keep searching.

This is the Sulky plow we've been talking about. The only ID marking is casting numbers that all begin with the letters HF. Can anyone help us identify the manufacturer?

Thanks,

Billy

B Kyle, I did a Google search earlier today and could not come up with anything that acted like what they were talking about had anything to do with HF initals. While you know what the plow looks like if you try it maybe you can find something close to what you have. I must say after seeing the others today yours is in better shape than any I saw today on Google. Good luck and if you find out anything for certain please let the forum know what you found out. Thank You Richard

Something about that plow reminds me of McCormick?

I wonder if the "HF" is not misleading you - the "HF" could relate to H???? Foundry as a parts supplier to another plow and agricultural manufacturer??
