What was the first production tractor to feature a 3-point hitch?
Answer: Ferguson-Brown model A
History of the Ferguson-Brown model A
The first production tractor to come with a 3-point hitch was the 1936 Ferguson-Brown model A. The Ferguson-Brown Company was a British agricultural machinery company formed by Harry Ferguson in partnership with David Brown Ltd. The Ferguson-Brown model A tractor was made from 1936 to 1939 with only 1,356 being produced.
In 1938, Harry Ferguson took a Ferguson-Brown tractor to America complete with a range of 3-point implements. Harry demonstrated the tractor with his 3-point hitch system to Henry Ford. Henry was so impressed that he and Harry Ferguson sealed a deal with a handshake. The outcome of this agreement was the famous Ford-Ferguson model 9N tractor.
First Trivia Question, June 17th 2017: What was the first production tractor to feature a 3-point hitch? Winner was Marcy Jones of Dorr, MI.
