McConnell Tractors was formed in 1989 as part of McConnell, LTD. with the purchase of Massey-Ferguson's 4wd articulated tractor. McConnell had been formed in 1961 by Ward McConnell. His company purchased the Marshall Tractor Co. of England, (formerly Leyland), and sold it in 1985.[citation (source) needed] McConnell bought the Chisholm-Ryder Company in 1986, which manufactured combines, bean harvesters, grape harvesters and converted Farmall tractors into High-Crop models. The United Company, makers of in-plant corn equipment, was purchased in 1987. In 1987, they began redistributing re-manufactured Kubotas.[1]
MF 5200 4WD (McConnell) brochure

MF's factory in Brantford, Ontario, Canada manufactured the MF 5200 tractor, and McConnell transferred manufacturing to their plant in Kinston, NC.[2] McConnell continued building the 5200 for Massey Ferguson, and then began selling it in yellow-livery under the McConnell-Marc name.

In 1994, McConnell Tractors was purchased by AGCO, re-uniting the former 4WD tractor company of Massey-Ferguson with the rest of Massey-Ferguson. AGCO re-styled the tractor and renamed it as Agcostar.

After the sale of the tractor manufacturing division, McConnell later started a new division called McConnell-Marc Tractors which imported Jiangsu and Jinma tractor models from China under the McConnell-Marc brand.[3]
