The Combine Harvester
Home > The Combine Harvester
Jonathan Whitlam
This book tells the complete story of
one of the most significant
agricultural inventions of all time –
the combine harvester. Starting with
the early straw walkers and rotary
models, author Jonathan Whitlam charts
the chronological evolution of these
complex machines which soon became
indispensable to the cereal farmer.
The author shows how the combine
developed into the huge modern
machine, capable of processing
hundreds of acres of wheat in a day.

The story of the combine harvester is
meshed with the cereal harvest,
starting with the first mechanisation
of the harvest with the sail reaper,
moving through to the binder and then
the threshing drum. The book describes
the early arrival of the combine
harvester in the shape of the reaper-
thresher in the USA and then smaller,
more compact trailed versions that
were also used in Europe. The self-
propelled combine arrived in the
1940s, which is when the idea really
began to take off.

The book looks at the various
different makes of combine harvester
such as those produced by Case, New
Holland, International Harvester, John
Deere and Massey Ferguson and
discusses what the future holds for
the combine harvester, including
advanced designs and driverless

Accompanied by a wide variety of new
colour photographs, this book will
appeal to farm machinery enthusiasts
and those interested in the
development of modern industrial
