RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Here is an MH implement a bit more modern than what Malcolm has to offer!!!  It's a post war Massey-Harris 720 mounted PTO drive fertiliser spinner broadcaster shown on my MH MH 744 tractor.

Correct me if I am wrong folks but I don't think you had this type of fertiliser spreader in N America - at least I have never seen one at shows or in N American literature

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

I had my MH 50 tractor out today at a show and had my MH 30 low volume sprayer on it.  This I bought last autumn.  A hard to find item as usually they are rotten.  This one is in very good order but was without the PTO drive pump.  I advertised for one, got one reply from a chap who had just scrapped the sprayer but kept the pump. 

The sprayer was made for MH by Fisons Pest Control, one of  our earliest and largest pesticide manufacturers in the early days of such products.  They also made a sprayer for Fergusons of which there was a very good fully restored specimen at the show today.

I am keeping this sprayer in its original condition - just spraying it with oil to preserve those MH decals

I think, from brochures I have seen, that your MH tractor mounted sprayers in N America were a different style to these????

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Here is a nice little MH 26 Grain Drill that followed me home the other day!!  The insides look better than the outside.  It was a great barn find east of Indianapolis. 

It has always been shedded until this summer.  With no rain all summer that was not a problem either!! 

I had been looking for the small one for a long time and now we can get some wheat or spelt planted!!

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Well I am looking for some information today.

I just recieved in the mail today all the way from Quebec. I bought it hoping it would fit my Massey chain lift plow. It looks close but have not tried it yet.

So does anybody know what this share really fits? It was advertised as fitting a #7 walking plow. There is a #7 cast into the face and on the back side a part number that I think says P97S.

If anything it will look good on the shelf!

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

I have a chance to buy a pulverator plow near my home in north east wi. It is a  3 bottom, missing all coulters, other than that looks to be complete. Just how rare are these in the US, Would it be worth it even though I don,t  really have the room to store it inside? any thoughts on this would be helpfull.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

They are pretty hard to find. I think I have heard of a little over 15 of them over the years and more are out there.

I have been in the market to buy one for a while so if you would want to sell it let me know I would be interested as I have a big soft spot for those plows!

and if the plow has been outside before it probably would not hurt too much for it to be outside for a couple more years. Although it is not ideal storage, keeping it outside at your place is better than it being lost to scrap. Although it doesn't sound like that's the case here.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Well, this is newer than most of the implements in this thread, and it's MF and not MH, but still part of the family.  The latest piece of equipment to arrive here at the farm.  "Little Brother" decided he didn't have room for it, so he brought it over here from Ohio earlier today.  (I traded him some cash for it.)  He insisted on seeing it mounted on one of the tractors, and the 1100 seemed most appropriate.   Here it is with Jeff at the wheel.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Nice find John!  Looks good on the 1100 as well.  I would question the driver's abilities and skills but other than the barn, it looks like you have him in some open spaces!!  LOL!!  He looks pretty proud that he was able to put the plow in the hands of a person who take good care of it for future generations!

Once you dry out lets see some dirt fly!!

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

John,

That makes up a very nice rig, and in my view the more exquisite because it is all original.  I really like to see things in their original working clothes no matter how rusted or tatty.  Oil it over and it will look great.

What have you got your eyes on for the next shed entry ...................?

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

John,

A very nice original pair, hope we see some pictures later in the year of them working in the field. Work and enjoy them, clean and oil them well and put them back in the shed till next time.

 How about a "Massey Working Day" at your place?? it's a long time since The Great Planting and Harvesting, so just sowing the seed of thought in your mind for another great Massey event.

Malcolm.
