Some of his Fordson tractors
FFA Member Stephen Mageean - Ford 5000
Portaferry - Co. Down - Ireland
Hello my name is Stephen Mageean. I am from Portaferry in Co. Down, Ireland.
I originally purchased the tractor from William Bell tractors in Tyrone. They informed me that the tractor had worked at a Power Station in England which is the reason for its pre-restoration brown paintwork.
The engine work was carried out by our local Agri contractor Brian Honer. You can see the low loader taking it to his workshop to start the mechanical work which included fitting a new clutch.
When Brian had completed the mechanical work and the tractor was back at our premises, I fitted a power steering kit, a king pin repair kit and a new radiator.
Next was the paint. Neil Morrisons was the person for this and a first class job he made of it.
A new set of Goodyear’s were fitted and with the end in sight my father’s help was needed in cladding the cab.
FFA Member John Meerlo
Fordson Super Major / Milk Churn trailers
Dear Ford and Fordson friends. My name is John Meerlo I live in the north-east of Holland.
Back in the early seventies the farmers in Holland delivered their milk churns to the factory by tractor.
For four years from 1970 till 1974 I did this work, I drove a Fordson Super Major with two wagons, all together I transported 280 milk cans.
In 2003 I bought myself a Ford Power Major and my own old wagon the same wagon I used to deliver with back in the seventies.
After three years I collected 150 milk cans from all kinds of different countries such as Sweden,Denmark,France,Ireland,Belgium,Germany and Canada.
I often go to Oldtimer shows and that brings up a lot of good memories.
By my kowing there are only two persons in Holland that have restored this combination with milk can transport.
Sincerely John Meerlo
