Fergie Tractor Weathervane. There were over 500,000 Little Grey Fergies built between 1946 and 1956. There are still some that have survived and are being used or restored. The TE20 was so successful that the Ford company named it the Grey Menace as its sales quickly spread across the world.
The famous Fergie Tractor TE20 was designed by Harry Ferguson. It became known as the Little Grey Fergie. The TE20 name came from Tractor, England 20 horsepower. There is a monument in Wentworth at the junction of the Darling and Murray Rivers in Australia. It commemorates the time in 1956when both rivers flooded and a fleet of little grey Fergies was used to build levee banks to save the town. They are today a sort after collectors item. They were and still are a really brilliant machine.

How Fergie Tractor Weathervane Works
The arrow and figure revolve on a ball bearing over a stainless Steel Shaft. The weathervane is powder-coated. Like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
No Mounting Bracket when only the Weathervane is required. Purchasing the suitable bracket makes installation easy and enjoyable
