3,307,996 – That’s a Lot of Tractors


The February meeting of the Coventry Society is a talk from local speaker, David Walker, on the subject “3,307,996 – That’s a Lot of Tractors”.

David Walker is a former Massey Ferguson employee who has researched and written about the history of the factory in Coventry.

David’s talk will provide an unparalleled insight into what it was like to work in the service department of the world’s largest tractor manufacturer during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Joining Massey Ferguson at Coventry as a technical author in 1966, David went on to become heavily involved in all aspects of supporting the company’s products, carrying out everything from writing the service manual for the MF 1200 tractor to providing technical advice to its dealers, issuing service bulletins and troubleshooting on territory as a regional service manager.
