Ferguson Tractor Jack ?

Question on how the Ferguson tractor Jack works.

I know it lifts the tractor up off the ground when you raise the lift.

But, say now you are widing the rear tires and front end. My old Ferguson TO35 lift will gradually go down in a while with a load left on it in the raised position.

You could not afford for the lift to go down while you are turning around the rear wheels or adjusting the spacing of the front end.

What insures the lift stays up while you are doing your work??????

I have used a 6x6 post that fits under the lift arm/jack connection area as a safety. This will keep the arms from going down if the engine is turned off.

Regards leaving the tractor running... I found no need because my hydraulics do not leak down.

If you work UNDER the tractor, by all means use jacks to stabilize!!! But I removed both rear wheels and diddled with them and the tractor did not budge during the working time.

I would assume they treated it like any other 'jack'. While it is still up, put jack stands or blocks under it? No extra gas burnt, and safer, and walk away for a month! I found 2 you tube videos with people using it, didn't see any extra chains- Humm. N forum? forgot the name of the site with all the manuals, I bet someone put a fergie jack manual in there.

I had instructions and the only chain it showed was the itty bitty one connecting front and back pieces of jack.

Thanks guys,

That explains why I did not see a safety lock or tie up safety chain.

Would be hard too take filled tires off turn them around and reinstall, if tires were locked 2 or 3" off the ground.

Just leave the motor running and be sure there is gas in the tank.

Just don't stop half way through the tire change and go to lunch, tractor would be on the ground when you got back.

There wasn't any chain to hold it up just a light chain from front to back to hold the front part in place till it started up. You could hook a chain from the top link pin to the rod thru the lift arms to hold it but there wasn't one provided. We always left the engine running so we could raise and lower the tractor to match the height of the fluid filled rear wheels rather than lift them.

I believe there is a chain that ties it up.

So some type safety chain, to insure it does not fall.

I am sure you must be right, I have watched a video of them lifting the tractor using the brackets, but I did not remember seeing them attach a safety chain.
