I just brought a Fergusson TO-20 home yesterday. The previous owner took good care of it. I was york raking my driveway and after turning around for another pass the rake would not lower. I sat there for about mintues playing with the lever to engage pto and playing with the raise/lower lever for the hitch. Finally it went back down and i finished up. I went back out theis morning and after my 2nd pass it did the same thing but this time it wasn"t budging. Any ideas? Thanks

I was just told it is a to-30 not a to-20 by the previous owner if that makes a differnce.

Remove the right side round side cover and you will see the Control Fork hanging down from th top into the oil. Move this Fork GENTLY back-wards and For-wards with the engine running using a long steel screwdriver or such to keep your fingers out of the oil....this should free the Control Valve...be careful when you move the Control Fork any implement on the 3 point may crash down. If the Hydraulics don't start to lift and lower then the Control Fork will have become detached at the bottom end and will require re-attaching to the Valve. If you would like more information with some pictures about this, just email me and I will send it....John(UK)...fergusontractors@hotmail.com

Never park the tractor with any implement on the 3 point and without the Engine running as this can cause the control valve to stick now it is getting older..Besides that it is dangerous leaving it like that, someone could interfere with the controls and get injured when it drops...John(UK)...fergusontractors@hotmail.com
