The Massey after the 885 was the 200.
That was a red version of the CCIL 722.
The 722 and 742 were a quantum leap over the prior 550 CCIL and over the 885 Westward.
Fully hydrostatic drives, good cab, heavily built. big opening. Isuzu diesel power.
What's really cool? Mr. Richard Kirkby designed these swathers... I do believe they are his first project as lead, right @Don Boles
The 742, which never made it into red Massey paint was way ahead of its time. 42 feet wide, variable speed drapers, a header that floated and was split so it could follow the ground. First swather over 100hp.... Oh yeah, and it was reverse station... you know, like a Macdon TwinDirection... It also had the first version of HarvestManager (MacDon's display for their M series)....
Now, why would Macdon bring all their prior competitor's innovations into their units 20 years later?
Well... Guess were Richard Kirkby now works!
I had a chance to meet this fine fellow a few years ago, while helping Don swath canola... That was probably the most fun I ever had for a harvest time... Oh yeah, and also when I developed a real hatred for Trimble Autosteer (remember that run around, Don? LOL!!!)
When they first came out, there was 12 of them within 10 miles of Humboldt... Kinda what got KMK sales going... they moved more CCIL 742s than any other dealership in W. Canada.
FYI, the CCIL swathers were built in Portage La Prairie, MB... not even 45 minutes from Macdon's factory, which is on the south end of Winnipeg.
