Description: Massey Ferguson's Thinking Tractors Part One
|Massey Ferguson's Thinking Tractors Part One - Dawn of the Electronic Revolution|| |
From Tractor Barn, the first DVD in a 4-part set covering the Massey Ferguson 3000 series from its birth in 1986 to the range's replacement in 1994.
In this programme they deal with MF's early electronic controls on the 4000 series of 1979, improved in the early 1980s with the 3500 series. 'But this was only the beginning as the company was about to take a giant leap forwards with the introduction of the new 3000 series in 1986 which bristled with electronic monitoring and control systems.'
Using previously a wealth of unseen archive footage they show how the very first prototypes were tested and developed to produce the world's first 'thinking tractors' and how these were then launched to the farming public alongside the smaller 300 series machines.
Stephen and Jonathan claim that 1986 'is when the modern tractor as we know it today was born.- Massey Ferguson became the first tractor manufacturer to truly embrace electronics in agriculture.
