Massey Ferguson Farm Implements and Machinery Part 1 1958-1970
In the period 1958-70 Massey Ferguson developed an outstanding range of implements and machinery that worked as a team with an equally fine succession of tractors. The farmer could be sure to find in the dealerships the mechanical aids that were just right for his circumstances.
In order to achieve this, the company had to have a great diversity of machines available. Dennis Burston and George French indicate the scope by selecting original or authentically restored implements representative of the period and coupling them with appropriate tractors. They are filmed doing the work for which they were designed. The great age of the MF 35, 65 and 100 series as well as the early balers and combines is brought to life again. This is the first in a three-part series.
