Massey Ferguson is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with an extra-special tractor livery showcasing the colours of the 70th anniversary’s official emblem.
Clad in regal purple and metallic platinum, the MF 8S will appear at various events around the country. It will debut outing will be the Staffordshire County Show (1st and 2nd of June) on the extended Jubilee Bank Holiday.
Other events include the Royal Highland Show from the 23rd to the 25th of June and the Newport Show on the 9th of July, with further dates to be added.
The tour will culminate at the Lord Mayor’s Show in London on the 12th of November, where the tractor will take part in the famous parade alongside the Worshipful Company of Farmers and the NFU.
“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,” said Lindsay Haddon, Massey Ferguson advertising and sales promotion manager. “It’s especially exciting as 2022 also marks the 175th anniversary of Massey Ferguson.”
Highlighting this double celebration, the tractor features examples of Massey Ferguson logos which have appeared over the course of the company’s history. These nine logos reflect the evolution of the brand’s identity.
The MF 8S used in the celebration is being supplied by South Staffordshire dealer KO Machines, which supplies Staffordshire, Shropshire and the West Midlands.
“The tractor looks stunning in its superb livery,” said 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.”
Readers who would like their own souvenir of the Platinum Jubilee can purchase a limited edition scale model of the tractor through their Massey Ferguson dealer.
