Two years ago Sue Morgan had an idea of forming a chronicle of British combine photographs, some of these older models from companies no longer in existence are still used to cut a few acres, and in this book she has been able to capture these on camera as a record for future generations, together with some information about the companies which made them.
Pictures include MH780s, which were once often seen two or three in a field in the 1960s to the 8-14ft cut 10 tonnes an hour models of the 1970s, to the lone giant 40ft cut harvests of today with upwards of 80 tonnes an hour capacity working in fields of a hundred hectares or more.
Sue Morgan’s fascination with photography and farm machinery, in particular combines began at a very early age. She has maintained this combined interest and produces a calendar featuring her photographs each year in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Sue also has a comprehensive collection of combine sales literature and collection of Claas combines including a Senator 70, Consul, Standard Matador and Mercury and Europa.
