COMBINES TURN 70 Massey Ferguson intro- duced the first totally integrated, self propelled combine in 1938 (inset). "While other manufacturers hung equipment on tractors," says Kevin Bien, Prod Mktg Mgr, Massey Ferguson, "Massey Harris' Chief Harvesting Engineer Tom Carroll designed a harvester with a dedicated power unit that supplied all components from the cutter bar to the grain cleaning system with large front drive axle and rear axle steering." However, the key to the combine's success, explains Bien, was the careful synergy achieved between each individual component. "That was as vital to the success of that first machine in 1938 as it is in our current Class VIII machines (shown above.)."
