Harvest time.

Yesterday was the start of the local wheat harvest... It was the arrival of the Combine Harvester that caught my attention for yesterdays pole men blog.

What a fine piece of machinery. New Holland C980 Combine Harvester. It looked new but this model has been superseded by the CR9080 several years ago.

With a cutting width of 9.15 metres it made short work of the wheat fields in front and to the left of our house.

As I was grass cutting at the time it made me feel a little inferior!!

If you fancy one there are several available on the internet  Price tag  €120,000 for a 2006 model with 1300 hrs on the clock....

I was a bit fed up when the return spring broke on our humble mower, a Wolf 'EuroTondor' of about 1980 (the house's vendors left it for us - that says a lot). So I would be terrified in splashing out the 120,000€ on this rather more grandiose SH model; but the internet sale site was fun to find.
