Sandstone Estates has a well-known and comprehensive collection of classic and vintage tractors. We first came to the attention of the vintage tractor world in 1999 with the inauguration of The Great 100 Working Event which set in motion a number of events around the world where different countries attempted and in most cases succeeded in breaking the world record for the maximum number of pre-1966 tractors working in one field at one time. Massey Harris is a pre-eminent brand in the world amongst tractor collectors and we are fortunate in having quite a number of these models. We decided to concentrate on bringing two of them back into full working order, a 744 and 745. Both have been restored by Chris Wilson.
The reason for this is that these tractors are often deployed on the farm as required to carry out various tasks. In fact this is a programme that is gaining momentum.
