Tractor Time : Massy Ferguson





Not to be outdone by the American and US tractors, Canada had to come up with their own and they managed to keep up just as well.  Wherever their company HQ maybe located today Massy started off in Ontario and that's all that matters.




Massy was also the front runner in the world's first four wheel drive tractors coming out in the 1930's. In the 1950's the Massy company merged with Ferguson and got the name we know them by today.




While not as common a tractor name across the fields of the Midwest the Massy line of tractors still retains a large share of the world market and should remain a mainstay for years to come. If you want some sleek lined and hardworking tractors you just can't beat the Massy.

    1. B - Ya but I have always shortened it to Massy. My Step Dad swears that MF's are the best tractor out there. It's about all he buys these days.
