Massey Ferguson tractor

A Massey Ferguson tractor helps harvest tomatoes near Napier in the early 1970s. Massey Ferguson was created by the merger of two tractor manufacturing giants: Ferguson and Massey Harris. Massey Ferguson tractors were first imported into New Zealand in 1950s and became very popular. They incorporated the Ferguson system, where implements were attached to the tractor by a hydraulic mechanism. The tractor in the image is a Massey Ferguson 135, a model first imported here in 1966.
