Dare to Compare
This exciting series of programmes digs deep into Massey Ferguson’s film archive, bringing to the screen rare and original films depicting machines from the 1930s right up to the present day. The series builds into a unique record of the impact Massey Ferguson and its predecessors made to agriculture the world over.
Volume Twenty One introduces the short lived but highly regarded 600 series, a technologically advanced, comfortable, reliable and powerful range that was introduced into the hostile agricultural machinery market of the early eighties. Our first film draws upon the similarities between farming with 600 series tractors and racing rally cars to illustrate why in both pursuits a working partnership between man and machine is needed to guarantee success. Then a fantastic film that dares to compare MF tractors with similar models built by Ford, John Deere, Case, & David Brown among others. We finish off with the mighty 800 series combine ensuring a happy ending to harvest time.
Whatever your specific interest, you will be certain to find something fascinating in this unique series as we move from vintage machines, through the classic era and then to the sophisticated machines of today.
