Between 1981 and 1991 the Ford Motor Company produced one of its most successful and enduring tractor ranges. This decade of evolution saw the introduction of a synchromesh gearbox, enhanced drive comfort and finally electronics. These two programmes tell the story of the Ford Series 10 range from its origins i9n the 6X range of 1964, thorugh to its replacement by the 40 Series in 1991, using both contemporary footage and actual films made for Ford when these tractors were new.
Part One looks at the first incarnation of the Series 10 with highlights such as forage harvesting with the 7610 and a ploughing marathon using a 7710 with front and rear ploughs.
Part Two completes the story with the Force II and Generation III tractors with footage from the main Ford tractor factories, a British led tour of the USA and the 8210 III with ElectroLink electronic hydrauluic linkage control.
No less than three variations of the Series 10 tractors were produced during those ten years, plus a range of compact tractors that fitted into the number series and shared similar styling to the larger machines. These programmes show well how the design evolved with the original Q cab followed by the updated Super Q version, plus the cheaper AP and LP cab options, as well as some of the more unusual models and variations such as the 4110, 7910 and 4610T. The development of the 7810 model is also followed as it was somewhat reluctantly put inot production in 1987 and then quickly became the best selling tractor of the whole range.
Presented by Stephen Richmond Part One also features the restoration story of an early 6610 while Part Two looks at the restoration od Stephen's own 7810 III.
