The MF 701 Baler was an early model trailed baler that was originally a Massey-Harris model. The baler is fitted with a Armstrong Siddeley single cylinder diesel engine to drive the baler as early tractors had no PTO or were of inadequate power to drive it. The optopn of a V.O engine or PTO drive was offered on the Massey Ferguson versions.


The price in 1959 was (from a 1959 MF UK price list)[1]:

  • PTO driven - & 690
  • V.O engine - £ 790
  • Diesel engine - £ 845
