Fordson - The First Generation
Home > Fordson - The First Generation
This DVD tells the story of the very
first generation of Fordson tractors
from 1917 to 1951. Using both
contemporary photography, interviews
with experts and also some previously
unseen archive films dating from the
1930s and 1940s, we show how the Fordson
tractor evolved from its early
beginnings in the USA to its domination
of British agriculture.

The first Fordson tractors were both
rugged and innovative and despite
becoming gradually outdated as the
decades passed, the design proved to be
ideal for the difficult conditions
experienced during the Second World War,
and the Major verison did much the same
in the immediate post-war period of
material shortages and general
austerity.

Never before has this story been shown
in such detail on a DVD and this
programme shows just how important this
tractor design was at the time it first
appeared and the following three decades
- and indeed how relevant it still is
today due to the fact that it was
responsible for introducing
mechanisation to so many farmers in
Britain.

Without the Fordson, farming today would
be very different indeed!
