The Big Massey
 
I just received an email that the new MASSEY FERGUSON IDEAL will make it's NA debut at the Western Canadian farm progress show next week. I am excited and am making the 6 hour treck for sure.

In a way its not surprising they would do this in Western Canada, its the only place in North America where Massey/Challenger out sells Gleaner, I'm told by 3 to 1.

Haha, That"s what I was told. I guess AGCO does surprisingly well on the Prairies.

Certainly an Endangered species. I think our local Case dealer sells more combines than Agco would sell Australia wide.
Gleaner seem to be the ugly duckling at Agco

your service should be 1st class then as no waiting list couldn't help myself rod lol

I hope they put that new combine on display with the biggest and best flex header that they have in the arsenal. AGCO's Dynaflex draper looks to be a mighty fine machine.

Heard something real disappointing yesterday, this ideal combine might not even be badged Massey Ferguson. I hope Ideal will not become its own separate AGCO brand. All the effort they put getting rid of old brands like Allis and White only for them add more again. Makes no sense to me, this might mean the end of Massey combines in Canada. If i can't buy a Massey combine then AGCO can kiss my business goodbye.
