The colloquial term “Ferguson 28” is widely used in Australia and New Zealand for later models of the TE-20 including the petrol TEA-20 and diesel TEF-20.{{Fact|date=March 2009}} “Ferguson 28” has never been an official tractor model designation. Initially the TE-20 had the “Continental” Z120 23HP engine, as did the Detroit built TO20 introduced a year later. The 80mm bore “Standard” petrol engine was phased in in mid 1947 as the TEA-20. Approx 3,000 of the 20,500 tractors built to December 31st 1947 being TE-A 20s. Subsequent to the introduction of the 85mm bore TE-D 20 in April 1949 the petrol engine was also made with 85mm bore which increased its power to just over 28hp. The term “Fergie 28” refers to the nominal horsepower of the later range of tractors. To benefit from the reputation of the later models in the used tractor market, the 23HP TE-20 is often advertised simply as TE-20, only very rarely is it referred to in Australia as a “Ferguson 23”. This term is unheard of in the UK.

The Ferguson TE 20 was built from 1946 to 1956. The model had a range of engine options and specials for differing markets. The actual numbers sold of some versions was very low. The TE stood for Tractor England This was Ferguson's third attempt to build a cheap simple tractor after his JV with David Brown to build the Ferguson-Brown failed to sell as well as expected due to cost. Then his JV with Henry Ford produced the Ford-Ferguson, which sold well, but then Harry Ferguson and Henry Ford parted ways.

Model historyEdit

Ferguson 28Edit

The colloquial term “Ferguson 28” is widely used in Australia and New Zealand for later models of the TE-20 including the petrol TEA-20 and diesel TEF-20.[citation (source) needed] “Ferguson 28” has never been an official tractor model designation. Initially the TE-20 had the “Continental” Z120 23HP engine, as did the Detroit built TO20 introduced a year later. The 80mm bore “Standard” petrol engine was phased in in mid 1947 as the TEA-20. Approx 3,000 of the 20,500 tractors built to December 31st 1947 being TE-A 20s. Subsequent to the introduction of the 85mm bore TE-D 20 in April 1949 the petrol engine was also made with 85mm bore which increased its power to just over 28hp. The term “Fergie 28” refers to the nominal horsepower of the later range of tractors. To benefit from the reputation of the later models in the used tractor market, the 23HP TE-20 is often advertised simply as TE-20, only very rarely is it referred to in Australia as a “Ferguson 23”. This term is unheard of in the UK.
