Massey Harris was formed with the merger of the Massey and Harris companies, both major manufacturers of harvesting machinery in Canada.
In 1917 Massey Harris began marketing the Big Bull which was built by the Bull Tractor Co. in Minneapolis Minnesota. In 1918, Massey Harris entered into an agreement with the Parrett Tractor Co. of Chicago, IL to build and market Parrett Tractors in Canada under the Massey Harris name.
Massey Harris pulled out of the tractor market in 1923. Henry Ford’s Fordson tractor was rapidly gaining market share and there was an economic recession which led to the demise of many manufacturers.
By 1938, Massey Harris Company was among the top five companies in the tractor industry. Models such as the 101 Super and 101 Junior, Model 81, Model 11 Pony and many more. In 1953, Massey Harris merged with Ferguson, after Harry Ferguson parted ways from Ford, to form Massey Ferguson.
The last true Massey-Harris tractors ended in 1958. After that, tractors produced by the firm were based on the Ferguson line of tractors.
