Massey-Ferguson Tractors (Book)
AUD $35.00

Few companies in the tractor industry make a bigger contribution to power farming in the western world than Massey-Ferguson — and few have a longer history.

This book tells the full story: the enterprise of the Massey and Harris families, the growth, from two small workshops for Canada's pioneer farmers to the world's biggest tractor company.  It is a story involving some of the farm equipment industry's most talented and successful people and the machines and tractors they built.  

Also included are accounts of the further success in the market which came when Massey-Harris acquired the rights to the distinctive U-frame Wallis tractors; the involvement in Italy of the Landini family who built some of Europe's biggest tractors; Frank Perkins in England who helped pioneer the benefits of diesel power; and Harry Ferguson, whose ideas revolutionised tractor efficiency through his Ferguson System of implement attachment and control.  

Michael Williams' authoritative account is complemented by over 125 fascinating photographs and more than 30 colour plates, many specially photographed for this book by David Williams.
