Restored MF muck spreader

Massey Ferguson marketed a number of Manure spreaders under there own name. Also commonly called a Muck speader. These were made by outside contractors and originated from Harry Ferguson's idea of offering his tractor tractor with a complete range of accessories and implements to compliment it.

The spreader was driven by the Power Take Off and was pulled by the drawbar.

The Massey Ferguson machines were built with a sheet metal hopper which tended to corrode if not cleaned out after use and stored under cover.
