About this item
This book takes up the story of Massey Ferguson tractors from 1957, after the merger of Massey Harris and Feguson and when the new name and red and grey colour scheme was used for the first time. The book brings the reader right up to date with the latest developments as well as a look into the future. The author describes the early models that were to establish Massey Ferguson's reputation for rugged reliability and adaptability. The 35 and 65 models of the 1960s led to the larger 1100, 1085 and 1155 models. In the 1970s and 1980s, greater demands for comfort saw the arrival of the 500 and 600 series. Overall, the range covers requirements from the basic and popular to the tractor powerhouses of modern industrial farming. With a wide range of modern photography covering both preserved and working examples, this is a fresh and comprehensive view of the one of the agricultural world's most popular tractors which puts the tractors in the perspective of the time they were built as well as retrospectively.
