People who are mad about vintage harvesting don't just collect the machines, they put them to work at events like the Casterton Working Weekend. The most interesting examples of vintage combines, threshing drums, binders, balers, pole elevators and other harvesting equipment, ranging from the days of a simple reaper to machines from the 1950s, were filmed over three years of the event. There are also comments from the enthusiasts who lovingly own, renovate and maintain them in working condition.
This programme includes rare machines from Holt, Claas, International, Case and Massey-Harris. A range of John Deere equipment are also featured, including a 1929 12A combine, the company's first self-propelled combine, the 1946 Model No 55 and a contemporary 116W wire baler.
A fine selection of equipment for anyone interested in harvesting and its history.
