Massey Ferguson Mk 2 (717) 3 ton Tipping Trailer with drop in sides. We have owned this trailer since new, it was one of two acquired by family in the late 1950's and was in service full time with a T20, 35 and 135 until the 1980's. The main uses were feeding cattle and sheep hay and mangolds, carting corn, lugging hay/straw, muck carting and everything in between. It still has the original data plate on the back of the hand brake pillar.Towards the end of the 1980's it was getting a bit rotten and was replaced and parked up in the equipment shed. In the late 1990's we started to rebuild it and it has been something we did from time to time.
After 20+ years it is now as far as we are going to go and is as strong and serviceable as it ever has been. It has had a new steel bed and all the timber is kerouin. Not sure about the origin of the bale extension, it arrived with the trailers. It enables the trailer to carry 2 x Flat 8's on the bed, we did 6 x 16 plus 12 on top - total 108. The bale extension has not been restored and there is some kerouin left over to start that job but you will need a bit more.It was never meant to be a concourse example, we just like to see things serviceable and working so you are not looking at a perfect restoration back to original. Tipping gear good with new flexible hose. Dowty coupling and Dowty/Nipple adapter included. A wonderful item to go with your T20/35/13 for tractor runs. It would be very easy to get this back up to be a gleaming example with cosmetic work but we were not interested in that side of restoration preferring to just keep things serviceable. I have some T-bar auto hitches as well which would be perfect for the Ferguson tractor range. The item "Massey Ferguson Mk 2 (717) 3 ton Tipping Trailer" is in sale since Tuesday, August 31, 2021.
