The first of the 'N Series' of Ford tractors was the 9N. It included the first three-point hitch system on tractors, in the United States (Ferguson had used it on the Ferguson-Brown tractor built for him by David Brown Ltd. in the UK). A design which is still utilized on most modern tractors today.

The Hitch was designed to solve some of the problems found in the earlier Fordsons, such as flipping over if the plow hit an obstruction. The three-point hitch system was labeled as the Ferguson System; Ferguson would later part ways with Ford to set up on his own as the Ferguson Company to produce tractors. The company later merged with Massey-Harris to form Massey Ferguson.
