MOWING MASSEY • Massey Ferguson, like many tractor manufacturers, liked to evolve their tractor models gradually as the years and decades passed.

PRIDE AND PASSION • The MF 20 was one of the new breed of Massey Ferguson industrial tractors, and was based on the best-selling MF 135. Bob Weir went to Scotland’s Central Belt to meet contractor Dave McCulloch, and his superb example.
