I’ve got a brand new combine harvester…..

Today’s Combine Harvesters are amazing machines using the latest technology including satellite navigation, laser guidance, computer control with touch screens, but they essentially do the safe jobs as the first ones invented as far back as the 1800’s. They combine gathering, reaping, threshing and windrowing a variety of crops: wheat, rice, oats, rye, barley, corn (maize), sorghum, soybeans, flax (linseed), sunflowers and rapeseed.
