Red Combines: The Authoritative Guide to International Harvester and Case IH Combines and Harvesting Equipment

    By

    The first axial flow combine transformed the industry and was hailed as the most significant piece of farm equipment built in the 20th century. The axial flow used advanced technology to process crops faster and more efficiently than anything else on the market. The axial flow started with research done by a rogue Swedish engineer in the 1950s, was continued in secret by a group of dedicated engineers from East Moline, Illinois, who did their work in a top-secret garage that only a select few were allowed to enter. The book tells the story of how extensive research and development allowed IH to build a new machine that took the market by storm. Done with dozens of interviews of engineers, salespeople, and customers, the book captures the behind the scenes drama and the cloak and dagger encounters with rival companies personnel and machines. The dramatic text is accompanied by more than 300 archival images, concept drawings, sketches, and new photogrpahy of the machines and men at work.
