In preparing this World-Wide Guide to MF Industrial Equipment, John Farnworth has produced a much needed reference text on this long neglected subject. This book is particularly timely given that MF badging of industrial machines ended in 1997.
It will come as a surprise to many vintage equipment enthusiasts that the book identifies an incredible 26 basic types of industrial equipment which were produced and marketed by MF. Over 250 models of these produced between 1964 and 1997 have been listed. Most are presented with an outline technical specification and a photograph. The book has been as a result of extensive research over the past three years involving contact with specialists in UK, America, Europe, Australia, South Africa and Brazil.
Additionally there are three valuable supporting chapters on early industrial equipment (pre-1964 Massey-Harris, Ferguson and early Massey Ferguson), a chronology of the development of MF's factories' production of industrial equipment, and a short history of the development of shuttle transmissions.
The book will provide a valuable reference text and identification guide for the industrial equipment enthusiast, all those interested in the general history of Massey Ferguson and most especially the growing band of Massey Ferguson Industrial equipment collectors world wide.
