Large Massey Harris Collection

Postby skwimjim » Tue Apr 08, 2014 1:15 pm

This is my wife's grandfather's collection of mostly Massey Harris, some Farmalls, and some other odds & ends. Sadly, he auctioned off most of these in 2005 (when these photos were taken). It got to be too much to take care of them all. He still has about 20 of them though. These were taken on his farm in Stockton, IL. Beautiful country there...

His pride and joy (which he still has) is this dual Massey 44 concoction made from two tractors, articulated by hydraulics. It was featured in "The Big Book of Massey". It will pull six 16" bottom plows.

Maintaining that fleet would be a full time job, a fun one though. Thanks for posting.
