Daniel Massey started making farm equipment in 1847 as the Newcastle Foundry and Machine Manufactory in New Castle, Ontario, Canada. The fledgling company made some of the world’s first mechanical threshers. Danie’s son, Henry George “Harry” Massey was the one who renamed the company in 1879 to Massey Manufacturing Company. The company quickly became one of the most well-known Canadian brands and sold its equipment internationally. Then in 1891 it merged with rival company A. Harris, Son and Company to become Massey-Harris. In addition to threshers and reapers, the company started making tractors in the 1930s.
The 1930s is also when British agriculture machinery company Ferguson-Brown started making tractors. Massey-Harris and Ferguson-Brown merged in 1953 to become Massey-Harris-Ferguson, but shorted the name to Massey Ferguson five years later in 1958. Old-time farmers might even be able to remember what became a popular jingle for the company: “He's a get-up-early, keep-'em-rollin', Massey Ferguson kind of a man.” In 1995 Massey Ferguson was purchased by AGCO Corporation, which remains its parent company to this day.

Getting the most work possible out of each piece of equipment is a must, which means that equipment has to be kept in good working order for peak performance every day.
Any piece of equipment that sits idle when it’s needed because it needs repairs is like opening up your wallet and letting the wind carry off your heard-earned dollars.

Get all the Massey Ferguson® Tractor Parts You Need from Abilene Machine
Massey Ferguson tractors have been a leading brand-name around the world for decades. Some even claim there are more Massey Ferguson tractors in existence than any other brand, though these claims are difficult to verify.
Massey-Harris was smart to merge with Ferguson-Brown back in the 1950s. Ferguson was the company that invented the three-point linkage or three-point hitch that allowed hitched implements to be powered by hydraulics and controlled from the tractor rather than with separate controls. When the Ferguson patents finally expired in the 1960s, the company’s three-point hitch system became the industry standard. Other innovations included the first tractors with single-wheel brakes that allowed for tighter turns by braking the inside wheel, as well as tractors with four-speed gear boxes with integrated differential and hydraulic systems.
The Massey Ferguson line-up of modern tractors today includes two models of sub-compact tractors, three models of compact tractors, three models of utility tractors, five models of mid-range tractors, and four models of high horsepower row cropping tractors. This is why you’ll find more than 860 replacement parts available through Abilene Machine.

The Massey Ferguson® Combine Parts You Need are Here at Abilene Machine
Massey Ferguson (when it was Massey-Harrison) revolutionized grain harvesting thanks to an engineer at Massey named Tom Carroll. His work allowed Massey to produce the world’s very first self-propelled combine in 1938. They called it the No. 20. Unfortunately, this first prototype was so expensive to make and so heavy that it wasn’t practical to mass-produce it. After a few years of adjustments, however, the Massey-Harris No. 21 Combine was mass-produced to great success.
Today Massey Ferguson offers two models of axial rotary combines, two models of flexible draper heads, and three models of corn heads, along with pickup heads and flex heads.
