We’ve a Massey 65 and a 165 multi power both owned since new. I can’t remember the exact years but the 65 is well over 60 years old.
Also another 165 owned since new.

Got a richmond and chandler chaff cutter like the one pictured on farm. No longer working could do with a bit of a restoration to get it going

Floor mounted pillar drill, made for the Air Ministry in 1942, had it rewired a few years ago and working fine.
Chaff cutter in barn, no idea of age. Nicholson hay turner - never seen it work but remember father talking about it.
oh, nearly forgot the hay pole and sweep stored in the shed.
 
Our old but still functioning Hydraulic Ram. First installed on the farm in 1908 and still running today. Original ram pump has now been replaced by a newer Blakes Hydram but old one still in place. Original cylinder head still functioning but very rusty now. Original windmill possibly predates the hydraulic ram so probably 19th Century.
