Farming has came a long way since I was a back on a tractor. My first harvest job was in High school in Tonkawa for John Lucas on an open cab Gleaner Combine. Man I ate a lot of dirt.Finley we got a John Dear 4440 with AC and a cab. It was like a dream. Now I look at these $500K rigs displayed here in Enid and Im totally blown away at the technology. They are so big that they have to have 6 cameras or more to see everything that is going on. The machines are Monsters. The Transformer Movie has nothing on these boys. I met one man who mad a small Bobcat looking making that would eat a 200 foot redwood like a kid chewing gum and four wheel drive tractors that I cloud ride a house under.
This is one show I plan on attending every year just as a guest to get the thrill of big machines and technology.
This machine her will eat the lunch of anything in its way. It looks simple but it is anything but that. It on a track like an army tank and you can raise that head and drop it on a mammoth tree or even a house for that matter and it will chew it up into quarter size pieces. NO JOKE! I seen him do it.
The guy sitting on it is its inventor and he is simply an engineer genius. Iv seen a lot in my life but Iv never seen a meaner machine. Dont let its size fool you, you wouldn’t want to get in its way!
