A staple in the farming community, huge combines are seen in fields all across the country. Called a combine because it brings together reaping, threshing and winnowing into a single machine - this marvel of modern engineering is a sight to behold. It allows huge swaths of crops to be harvested efficiently, by a single operator who’s often guided by sophisticated equipment such as GPS.
Tricky to Transport
Though your combine is adept at chewing through fields at an impressive rate - it can be tricky to transport. The removable heads can reduce its width considerably, but it still stands quite tall. Therefore, securing it on a flatbed trailer requires the right know-how, otherwise the risk of it tipping is far too likely for comfort.
A Professional Task
You’re probably accustomed to driving your combine from one field to the next, and you may even take it on the road for short distances (with the required slow-moving vehicle sign affixed to the rear). This is a far cry from loading it onto a trailer, and driving it several states away or even farther. This type of undertaking requires professional help, and A1 Auto Transport is the ideal choice.
