I notices they promoted their three point hitch without mentioning the Ferguson System.  :deadhorse:

I've never seen a Jubilee with live PTO.  Must have been a rare option.  I grew up on 861s and live PTO was standard on those.   We had both gas and diesel 861's.  Dad didn't like to change implements, so he had a tractor for almost every implement.

Kris, You could get them with a 2 stage clutch so you had live PTO and Hydraulics. That was of the big selling points for the Jubilee series.

Especially if you had a mounted corn picker and sheller, I remember Dad installing and removing ours every year, what a pain.

The two stage clutches for  " live  PTO "  could really pinch nerves in the lower torso and legs also with all after noon brush hogging . Sometimes having selective memory has its benefits . That  is how good beer gets involved .

Our 861s had the two stage clutch but in that video there was a separate hand actuated lever on the left side of the tranny for the live PTO.   Sure wish my Ferguson had that......  :(

That brings back a lot of memories. I grew up( what little growing up I did) in a share croppers family, we furnished the equip. and labor the land owner furnished the land , seed fert. and such. Daddie bought a new John deere one row, lost two crops straight. They come got the little john. Now comes the 53 ford, You couldn't tell that man anything, two rows at one time shoot. I used to love breaking ground with it. Memories Freddie

Being the owner and user of both an 850 and a Fordson Dexta I really enjoy watching those old advertisements. Thanks for posting the link.

Well in all my years of wrenching on these old units, Inever saw a double clutch in front of a 4 or3 speed trans in the earlt Fords. Only selecto speeds and 5 speeds? Even my 1958 1841 industrial doesn't have a bouble clutch..
