Fordson was the brand name of a range of tractors manufactured by Henry Ford, the multi-talented American motor tycoon. Apart from being a successful businessman, Henry Ford was also an inventor and his first Fordson tractor was put into mass production in 1917. By 1925, he had made over half a million of them, used not only in the USA and Canada but in Britain as well. As a result of the US recession of the 1920s and 1930s, Ford moved production to the Irish Republic in 1929 before moving again to Dagenham in the UK, which was to become the home of the Ford Motor Company for decades afterwards.

The Fordson Power Major was produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1952 to 1961. It was a development of the Fordson Major tractor, which had been introduced in 1948. The Power Major was powered by a 3.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that produced 52 horsepower. It was a popular tractor with farmers in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world.
It was a versatile tractor that could be used for a variety of tasks, including plowing, harrowing, mowing, and transporting goods. It was also used for construction and other industrial applications. The Power Major was a well-built and reliable tractor, and many examples are still in use today.
