RE:Massey Harris Implements.

You just never know what is on your own doorstep Tom, that J I Case planter would look nice behind one of your Wallis K tractors.

You could have a hard time persuading the city that you NEED it more than they do.

Hope you get several other leads from your recent implement advert, do you want any from this side of the pond??

Malcolm.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

I'm guessing eventually when the city decides they need to move the planter it might be able to be had but Untill then it sure sounded like a definite no!

I didn't get any response on the ad but you never know. The only people that called were friends to see if I found anything... There was a guy a couple days ago that called with three wallis tractors for sale in western ND, I probably will go pick them up once we settle a price. He didn't know what models yet.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Here is another M-H implement which has come back to life this weekend, this corn cultivator came back from Ontario last year and has been sat on my trailer since December, since then it has been soaking in diesel to soften up the dried oil and grease before steam cleaning, which has now revealed a lot of original green paint. I have also removed the broken wooden pole and made up a lower tractor drawbar so it can be shown with a M-H tractor.

It has been cleaned, sprayed with diesel and oil mix to preserve the original patina.

Malcolm.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

That is a pretty fancy hitch to replace the wooden pole!!!  It looks like it might have added some weight to an otherwise light piece of equipment.  Nice intergration without destroying the original.  Looks like it would not take anything to put it back to the wood pole.

Good job, Malcolm. (like you need my approval!!)  Love the horse stuff though!!

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

You just never know what you are going to see next, at our recent Tetford and Salmonby village scarecrow weekend this M-H 735 PTO driven mower appeared outside my place with two "likely scrap men" hoping to take it away and send it to China.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

I'm hoping you didn't let them take it away. Is that your next project Malcolm?

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

This nice Massey-Harris field cultivator followed me home from Minnesota last weekend.  I haven't yet looked through the Buyer's Guides to see if I can determine what years it was produced.  If any of you out there have an idea on that, please share.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

A friend of mine picked this plow up for me this morning. It will be my first massey horse implement. Looks like it is in decent shape and the price was right.

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

I have just restored a M-H 734 Mower. It was pretty well seized up when I bought it. It seems to have taken me a long time to get to here.

I believe the Mower would have been made in Kilmarnock Scotland.

Please disregard the John Deere sign on the door!!!!!!!

RE:Massey Harris Implements.

Well done Alan,

The mower looks very nice, I know how much time goes into these projects, but well worth it when you see the end product like this. Your choice of colour looks spot on
Now what is next in line for restoration?

Malcolm
