Following his well-received books in this ‘In Detail’ series on the Ferguson TE20 and the Massey Ferguson 35 & 65 models, author Michael Thorne turns his attention to the outstandingly successful and well-loved 100 Series of tractors. Of the 100 range, the most popular was and remains the 135. Half a million 135s were built at Massey Ferguson’s factory in Coventry alone, with production overseas on top of this figure. Another big success was the larger, more powerful 165, with nearly 200,000 sold. This model, like the 135, is among the most popular and sought-after classic tractors today, although many 135s and 165s are still in active use around the world, in spite of their age. The 100 range included a great number of other models, and in addition to the 135 and 165, which are given in-depth treatment here, important models described in detail are the 130, 148 Super-Spec, 168, 175, 185 and 188 Super-Spec. There is an extensive chapter on the implements available for the range, and another on conversions. Featuring 290 illustrations including detailed specially-commissioned colour photography of outstanding examples of 100 Series tractors, Massey Ferguson 100 Series In Detail offers an unrivaled store of knowledge for the owners and enthusiasts who care passionately about these tractors, and serves as a tribute to the people who made them.

This is the first full-scale history of one of the largest farm tractor manufacturers of all time, peppered with pictures of Massey-Harris, Ferguson, and Massey Ferguson’s historic models, collectibles, sales memorabilia, and advertisements from old farm magazines. The Big Book of Massey Tractors tells the story of the mergers and machines that formed Massey Ferguson over several decades, and—because these machines dominated Canadian farms for almost a century—in many ways it also tells the story of Canadian agriculture. Robert Pripps, a longtime tractor aficionado, describes Massey Ferguson’s battle with Ford over dominance of the farm tractor industry—a battle the company eventually won, remarkably enough, in view of its initial abject market failure with tractors. From the company’s beginnings in 1891, to its 1953 merger with the Ferguson tractor company, to its current ownership by Allis-Gleaner Company (AGCO), Masseys have played a large role in our agricultural history. The Big Book of Massey Tractors celebrates that role and showcases the machines that have helped turn the earth for over a hundred years.

James Oliver sold his first "chilled" plow in 1870--"chilled" because the cast iron was cooled quickly with water to harden the metal and strengthen the plow. And when Oliver Chilled Plow Works merged with the Hart-Parr Company in 1929, the might of capital, expertise, and engineering resources came together to create one of the most successful and revered small tractor manufacturers of all time. This book follows the Oliver tractor from its inception through its development over the years, until the last model rolled off the assembly line in 1976. A story of entrepreneurship and industry, of machinery and American know-how, this illustrated history captures the spirit of Oliver farm equipment as its tractors and crawlers, hay balers and threshers turned American farmland to gold. Throughout, brilliant color photographs and historical images bring the story of the Oliver tractor vividly and vibrantly to life.
