plough - "The Belfast Plough"
Known as the Belfast Plough, this was the result of Harry Ferguson's
inventive streak, assisted by Willie Sands' engineering ability. It was
designed for use with the Eros, a tractor conversion of the Ford Model T
By 1917 the plough was ready for demonstration as the first wheel-less
plough. The first demonstration took place at Coleraine in front of the
farming public. The new wheel-less plough for which great claims had
been put forward, had made its very first appearance. The plough
production model cost £28.00.
On the arrival of the Fordson Model "F" Willie Sands made a very clever
conversion kit, so that the plough could be fitted to this tractor.
