Shows, Working Days,

Having attended shows for several years with tractors and now the combines,I'm always amazed at the stories and experiences of others to many to list on this site for sure, without doubt the Dorset show brings with it a chance to meet people from all over the world who have experience in the machinery on display, you get to realise the global brand that was Massey Ferguson during that time, a truly incredible story.

Here is a selection of pictures from various shows and working days, moving these combines around as you can imagine is fairly costly so as a busy working man I have to limit the outings every year and also with the width of the combines about 11ft 6 on a 10ft cut few hauliers will want the job!.

Another shot of the Bath and west show!! Unfortunately now this premiere event has scaled down what was a fine selection of machinery offered by individuals every year! Perhaps the many thousands of visitors attending this show have lost interest in what was basically the original format for the Show.Agriculture.
