Thinking Tractors Part One - Dawn of the
Electronic Revolution

Part One of the first two DVDs in a 4-
part series covering the Massey Ferguson
3000 series from its birth in 1986 to
the range’s replacement in 1994.

The modern tractor as we know it today
was born in 1986. In this programme we
tell the story of how this came about
and how Massey Ferguson became the first
tractor manufacturer to truly embrace
electronics in agriculture.

We follow the story as Massey Ferguson
produced the first production tractor
with electronically controlled three-
point linkage in the form of the 4000
Series in 1979 and then took this and
improved it on the 2005 and 3500 Series
of tractors in the early 1980s. But
this was only the beginning as the
company was about to take a giant leap
forwards with the introduction of the
new 3000 Series in 1986 which bristled
with electronic monitoring and control
systems. Using previously unseen
archive footage we see how the very
first prototypes were tested and
developed to produce the world’s first
‘thinking tractors’ and how these were
then launched to the farming public
alongside the smaller 300 series

From now on farming would never be the
same again!

To follow later this spring are Parts
Three and Four. Part Three - Extended
Family will cover the introduction of
new models including the 3100 series.
Part Four - End of an Era will cover the
final new models in the 3000 series plus
the Dynashift transmission and the
replacement of the whole range in 1994.
