1975 Sperry-New Holland Combine
Imagine how a harvest might have looked to a farmer when you climb into the cab of our 1975 Sperry-New Holland combine. In the 1830s, it took 250-300 man hours to plant and harvest 100 bushels of wheat. By 1975, when the museum’s Sperry-New Holland combine was built, it took three hours to produce the same 100 bushels of wheat. Much of this time savings came from the invention of machines to do the hard work of harvesting, rather than people.
