Massey Ferguson is celebrating the Queen’s platinum jubilee with a striking 8S.205 finished in the colours of the 70th anniversary’s official emblem.

Supplied by South Staffordshire-based KO Machines (Massey dealer for Staffordshire, Shropshire and the West Midlands), the tractor is clad in a palette of regal purple and metallic platinum.

It also features examples of nine MF logos which have appeared over the course of the company’s 175 year history from the mid-19th century through to the present day, including the very latest version released at the back end of last year.

“We are honoured to make our own special salute to the Queen as the first British Monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee after 70 years of service,” comments Lindsay Haddon, Massey Ferguson advertising and sales promotion manager. “It’s especially exciting as 2022 also marks the 175th anniversary of Massey Ferguson.”

“The tractor looks stunning in its superb livery,” adds John Owen, dealer principal of KO Machines. “We are proud to be partnering Massey Ferguson in its platinum jubilee celebrations and look forward to taking the tractor out on the road.”

Further dates will be added over the coming weeks, but the debut outing of the tractor will be the Staffordshire county show (1-2 June) for the extended bank holiday weekend. It will also be at the Royal Highland show (June 23- 25) and the Newport show (July 9). The tour culminates at the Lord Mayor’s show in London (November 12).

If you would like your own souvenir of the platinum jubilee, a detailed limited edition scale-model of the tractor will be available to order through MF dealers.
